MOLD REMOVAL IN SHIPPING CONTAINERS
It is very important to know how to clean mold from every surface of your Shipping Container. The key is to remove mold before it spreads and becomes a bigger problem. Left unchecked, it can rot steel surfaces and cause indoor pollutants that can lead to contamination of products being ship in the container. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) notes that any moldy areas less than 10 square feet (about 3 feet by 3 feet) can be remediated by the owner.Beyond that, you may want to talk to a mold removal contractor. In most cases, it is better to have a mold remediation contractor do the work than a general contractor. Even though chlorine bleach is often used to kill mold, bleach is not an EPA-approved biocide. For that, you will need to use a product such as Chlorine Dioxide (ClO2). If a space 3-foot by 3-foot of mold growth is heavily concentrated , it should be contained to prevent dispersal. Cleaning and disinfecting is the next step and this is the stage that includes the actual remediation and disposal of infected materials. After the cleaning and disinfecting, then the technicians apply biocide/fungicide/moldicide solutions. Procedures in a Shipping Containers includes spraying with ClO2 to kill Mold and then removing any Mold stain by either water preassure, manual scrubing or by using a chemical to remove mold stains. Indoor mold growth can, and usually does, produce toxins, irritants and allergens that have the potential to give mold workers (and occupants) headaches, skin rashes and respiratory problems. ClO2 can be purchased in a pre-mixed stabilized form in a sealed/moisture proof container. • A close relative to bleach, it has many of the benefits of dilute bleach when it comes to disinfecting, but is gentler to fabrics, and better tolerated by chemically sensitive persons. • Chlorine dioxide leaves no chemical residue. This makes chlorine dioxide the most eco-friendly biocide that can be used. And residual odor dissipates rapidly compared to ozone. • Leaves no residue. Excellent for “polishing” after remediation or duct cleaning. We like. We use
