Bacterial Screening


Concern over bacterial contamination arises when the client experiences an episode of flooding and/or sewage drain backup. The concern increases if prompt and competent cleaning is not performed. The longer the time lapse between response the greater the amplification of bacteria and mould.

The Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) is the industry’s leading organization that publishes the standards of practice to be used as a guideline by emergency response contractors. These standards are S500 - Water Restoration Guidelines and S520 - Standard and Guidelines for Professional Mould Remediation.

The IICRC S500 provides a specific set of practical standards for water damage restoration. It does not attempt to teach comprehensive water damage restoration procedures; rather, it provides the foundation for basic principles of proper restoration practices. The IICRC S520 is a procedural standard and reference guide for the remediation of mold damaged structures and contents. IICRC S520 attempts to combine essential academic principles with practical elements of water damage restoration for technicians facing “real-life” mold remediation challenges. They are both based on reliable remediation and restoration principles, research and practical experience.

Generally, the client contacts their insurance company upon discovering a flood or sewer backup who then dispatches a “preferred” emergency response contractor to clean up and remove damaged material. Completion of work and verification clearance testing is conducted using very basic testing equipment that often produces false results.

It is important to contact an independent third party inspection service after receiving a basic verification clearance through your insurance company’s referred contractor. The staff at Assurance Environmental have in-depth knowledge of the S500 as well as the S520 by obtaining certification through the IICRC as Water Restoration Technician (WRT) and Applied Microbial Remediation Technician (AMRT).

Assurance Environmental provides quality services and testing to ensure that conditions have been returned to an acceptable pre-loss state. By using an independent third party, the client is assured that their best interests are being protected; clearance reports are unbiased and are based on scientific data obtained from laboratory sample analysis.
