The Benefits of Hiring an AMRT Certified Technician

Because there’s more to be done after water damage strikes than just mopping up, you need a certified Applied Microbial Remedial Technician (AMRT) to make sure the job’s done right. Any time water enters your home from sources like outdoor flooding, a ruptured supply line or a sewer back-up, both immediate and long-term consequences must be addressed. While professional water extraction, structural drying and dehumidifying techniques make up the immediate phase, AMRT treatment by personnel certified by the IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification) addresses two potential after-effects — mold growth and microbial contamination.

First Moisture — Then Mold and Bacteria

Once water inundates your home, the onset of toxic mold growth is usually a slam dunk and only a matter of hours away. Similarly, bacteria and other biohazards in raw sewage that back-flows into the house, or present in outdoor flood water, presents an ongoing health threat as it contaminates the indoor environment. Except in cases where water damage affects only a small, limited area, and the water involved is clean and clear, proactive treatment by AMRT-certified personnel should be a part of any professional water damage remediation.

The AMRT certification process includes both classroom theory and hands-on training and complies with industry standards set by the IICRC. The syllabus for AMRT certification focuses on critical mold and bacterial biohazard issues including:

  • Microbiology of toxic mold and sewage.
  • Choice and proper application of effective antimicrobials, biocides and disinfectants.
  • Sampling spores and testing active mold growth.
  • Methods of containment to stop spread of airborne spores or bacterial contamination.
  • Removal of mold growth from surfaces and sterilization.
  • Removal of mold-infected or sewage-contaminated building materials and replacement.
  • Disposal of contaminated materials.
  • Air quality management including replacing HVAC filters and inspecting ductwork and coils for contamination.
  • Follow-up evaluation post-treatment.

For thorough and effective mold and bacterial decontamination in the wake of household water damage, make sure the remediation contractor hires AMRT-certified technicians. For more information, contact the water damage professionals at Rytech.
