We specialize in helping Property Owners, Home Buyers, Allergist, Functional Doctors, Building Management Groups, Tenants and Lawyers find and eliminate the causes of mold growth or poor indoor air quality in their buildings or yacht.

Florida only requires only minimal hours of training to become a Mold Assessor and less to become a mold remediation contractor. Beware you could put yourself in the hands of a very inexperienced Inspector or contractor if you don’t do your research. We have Indoor Environmental Hygienist and approved State CEU Education provider from the State of Florida providing the knowledge and experienced to locate and provide solutions to any building failure.. Do you want the teacher or the student performing your Mold Assessments?

HI Safety First strives to meets or exceed  National Standards such as IICRC S500 for water damage and S520 for mold damage and  the ASTM D7338-10 Standard Guide for Assessment of Fungal Growth in Buildings to provide a report that is based on Industry guide lines and will provide accurate, credible information

Remediation & Protocols

Florida State created licensing regulations to protect the population for unscrupulousness Assessors or Remediation Contractors. The State separated the Assessors from the Remediation contractors so the Assessor will write the scope of work for the Remediation guideline  contractor to to assist contractor identify areas of concern.  Remediation design and protocols are very important and should be included as part of a Standard Mold Assessment to assure the project is completed correctly. We write our protocols for each project and follow the EPA, AIHA, and ANSI/IICRC S520 & S500 Standards. Be aware many remediation companies and public adjusters do not want a protocol so they can cut corners or embellish the cost and have no oversight.  The end results will be cross contamination of your home and potential regrowth.

Post Remediation Verification or Post Testing

Post testing is recommended to assure the remediation cleaning process was successful. The breathable air space and surfaces should be verified as being returned to a normal fungal ecology. We are very diligent preforming these inspections. Our experience and knowledge of cleaning processes and the national standards for remediation will identify if the project was preformed correctly and ready to reoccupy.
