Flooding

If you’ve had flooding, the cause of mold growth will be obvious. If the mold has grown slowly over time, the cause may not be as obvious. Whatever the case may be in your situation, the first steps will be to eliminate the water and/or humidity that is the source of the problem. Because mold requires water or moisture to grow, once the source of the moisture is targeted and eliminated, further mold build up problems are unlikely.

Remove Water And Moisture

The next step is usually to completely eliminate any and all mold in the affected areas. Our Technicians will also completely dry out the water or other moisture in the areas that have water damage. Like many things these days, mold remediation has become pretty high tech. Our company employs the latest technology to both identify water and mold problem areas that may not be visible. We use the best and safest mold removal products on the market. Each mold removal project is unique. Your specific situation may require certain products and/or procedures to ensure complete, 100% elimination of all moisture.

Containment

A common procedure the removing mold is to set up a “safe zone” that cover the affected areas with plastic sheeting from floor to ceiling. The area is kept isolated by maintaining a negative press using a High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filtered fan. Additionally, all air vents in and out of the affected areas will be blocked. You then have a contained zone where the mold removal work can continue without affecting the rest of your home or business and with minimal impact on your day-to-day activities.

Remediation Now Begins

After containment, the process of mold remediation begins. All building materials like sheet rock and wood that are moldy and porous need to be removed and double-bagged for disposal. Care will be taken during the bagging and disposal process to eliminate the chances for dispersing mold spores into your home or business. There is no point in cleaning up the affected area and carelessly infecting another area because of sloppy procedures. Mold spores disperse quite quickly and easily and can start growing again if they find the right moisture conditions.

Final Inspection

When remediation is completely finished the inspection company will return and do another inspection to certify the mold has been properly remediated.
