Re: Mold Prevention coatings applied during new construction

This is a less than spectacular approach to mold remediation. You cannot use an air
driven abrasive without addressing air filtration. A HEPA system will become blocked
within a few minutes of operation if you attempt to abrade surfaces with air driven soda
or other abrasive. A poor performing HEPA system will not adequately remove particulate
pollution. Accordingly, the high alkaline state of soda will consume metal surfaces and
becomes an environmental hazard not to mention the airborne mold created by the process.
Misinformed remediators are using this process because it is fast and cheap for them.
Just another bad idea to bilk money from unsuspecting home owners. There never seems to
be an end to snake oil cures in the remediation industry.
If you find anyone foolish enough to employ the process, report them to the State EPD.
It is a strong probability they are not following environmental guidelines.
