INX Indoor Air Quality
We have been proudly servicing Commercial & Municipal clients including hospitals, colleges, universities, school districts, manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, hotels, nursing homes, and restaurants for over 20 years. During that time we have successfully remediated mold issues in thousands of buildings with the main goal of helping our customers and their clients breathe easy.
Schools, Colleges and Universities have been calling INX for over two decades to help them remediate mold in many areas of their facilities. We have successfully remediated mold in classrooms, libraries, auditoriums, dorm rooms, hotel rooms and many other areas within these buildings. We understand that mold is a delicate subject and the importance of effectively fixing a mold issue without causing alarm to students, faculty, employees or customers is of utmost importance.
The first and most important step within our proven mold remediation process is containment construction.
The purpose of the containment is to seal off the remediation area under negative pressure to minimize the potential for cross contamination to clean areas during the remediation process. These containments also double as a barrier from anyone who might still be working or operating within your building. We typically use opaque heavy plastic and temporary wood framing to construct these units so that anyone who is passing won’t be distracted by our operation or equipment. A HEPA (High efficiency Particulate Air) Air Scrubber is placed inside the containment and exhausts out to create a negative pressure differential in the containment. Our trained Mold Technicians have worked hundreds of jobs in the history of our operation under these circumstances and are familiar with the importance of being unnoticed.

If this is the case, we can help by following our Seven C’s to effective Mold Remediation – Containment, Contents, Cutting, Cleaning, Coatings, Clearance & Closing!

Contents Cleaning and Protection
If contents are not impacted, it can be simply removed from the mold remediation area or relocated away from the work area and sealed with heavy plastic during the remediation process. If contents are impacted (has mold growth or may have mold spore deposits), it should be cleaned or sealed in plastic for future cleaning.
Contents Cleaning or Protection
Cutting & Demolition
During this phase of remediation, all contaminated building materials are removed and discarded. Some building materials which are not directly impacted may need to be removed to access hidden areas or voids for cleaning and/or remediation. After cutting, removal of all contaminated wall coverings, drywall, insulation and finish molding, carpeting, padding etc. and any other building materials is required.
Cutting & Demolition
All remaining surfaces are first HEPA vacuumed to remove bulk mold growth and mold spore deposits. All surfaces are then disinfected and wet wiped removing the residual mold, then HEPA vacuumed a second time. Any deep-rooted mold in wood structure may need to be abraded by wire brushing, sanding, blasting, or other means, then HEPA vacuumed and disinfected.
Utilize an airless paint sprayer to coat remediated structural members with an anti-microbial or mold-proof coating. This coating is typically white or clear. Its purpose is to seal up any structural joints or crevices that cannot be thoroughly accessed for cleaning.
After cleaning of remediated surfaces is complete, all surfaces in the containment are HEPA vacuumed, wet wiped with disinfectant and HEPA vacuumed a final time to prepare area for inspection or Clearance testing.
The final step is the Closing Report and Documentation. Upon completion of every project, a closing report including before and after pictures, scope of work, test results, Product Data sheets, digital photos, and any future recommendations is provided.
