Mold Remediation Process
These are the steps used by our experts for mold abatement:
1) Use of Antimicrobials
This is the initial stage of the remedy. We can apply an antimicrobial agent to your house or place of business to stop mold growth until the wet area has dried out if there has recently been water damage but no obvious mold growth. If mold spores are already present, antimicrobials can also eliminate them.
- Source identifying
Mold is frequently discovered in areas that have recently been exposed to water or are close to a moisture source. Condensation is a problem in some places including restrooms, basements, sink cabinets, and window sills.
Using cutting-edge, sector-specific moisture detection equipment and inspection technologies like thermal imaging, our professionals can spot high moisture concentrations in residential and commercial structures. This frequently aids in locating the moisture intrusion’s origin.
If the correct circumstances are present, mold can spread swiftly. Once the moisture infiltration source has been fixed, our personnel will isolate the affected area(s) to stop the spread of mold spores to adjacent parts of the building. In order to reduce the possible impacts of cross contamination to adjacent unaffected areas, containment is essential.
4) Air Filtration
During the black mold removal process, spores may be dislodged and release airborne particles. The air must also be cleaned in addition to confinement. Throughout the project, negative air machines with high efficiency particulate (HEPA) air filters are constantly in operation. This guarantees that the damaged area is cleared of mold spores, dust, microbial volatile organic compounds (MVOCs), and other airborne detritus.
5) Elimination and cleanup
In most cases, total removal of the damaged materials is the only practical approach to guarantee proper mold treatment. Typically, drywall, insulation, wood trim, carpet, and even furniture are included.
To effectively remove mold from your home or place of business, we adhere to S520 industry standards established by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). A certified environmental hygienist must be used if the moldy area is larger than 10 square feet. Our customers will have peace of mind knowing that the mold has been effectively minimized thanks to the hygienist’s final clearance test.
As was previously mentioned, it is likely that materials that have been impacted by mold need to be removed from affected locations. In such circumstances, we are able to offer restoration services and replace damaged regions using new construction materials. The property will be returned to its prior state at the end of the process.
