A professional mold service like removals and remediation are a meticulous process that requires a knowledgeable professional and the use of specialized equipment and cleaning products. The actual process may differ depending on the extent of the mold growth and the area where it is growing. However, you can expect the mold removal process to follow these basic steps.
– HEPA air scrubbing
– Demolition of impacted building materials
– HEPA vacuum
– Antimicrobial cleaning
– Final HEPA vacuuming
– Cleaning up the work area
Mold removal, also known as mold remediation, begins with an inspection of your property. We will check for visible signs of a mold problem as well as hidden mold and sources of water, which may be water leaks in your walls. Depending on the location and size of the problem, we may use negative air pressure and barriers to prevent mold spores from spreading in your home during clean-up. HEPA vacuums and air scrubbers will also be used to filtrate the air and capture airborne mold spores.
When we come to perform our mold service you can count on all mold-infested materials being removed from your home or treated to kill or encapsulate mold spores. Mold-contaminated drywall will be safely disposed of, but some materials like studs and ceiling rafters cannot be removed easily. In these cases, the mold is encapsulated. After the surface is scrubbed with a fungicide, a special sealant is applied that prevents mold from growing and spreading.
One of the most important elements of mold remediation is addressing the source of the water. If your home suffered flood damage, the water must be cleaned and the area dried completely before it’s sanitized. Mold can also be the result of a leak in your home.
