Every mold damage scenario is different and requires a unique solution.  Complete mold remediation procedures are necessary to insure that mold does not return.  These steps may include:

• Locating  the Source

Mold feeds on natural building materials (drywall, wood) and water sources are often hidden.  There are various technologies used to detect mold and hidden water sources during an inspection.

• Mold Containment

Containment is constructed around mold along with air moving and filtration systems to prevent the spread of mold spores to other locations in your home or business.

Air Filtration

Specialized filtration equipment allows the capture of microscopic mold spores out of the air. Powerful “air scrubbers” and HEPA vacuums are utilized to prevent the spread of these mold spores while the mold remediation is in process.

Removing Mold-Infested Materials

The extent of mold growth will determine the nature of the remediation process.  Anti-fungal and antimicrobial treatments may be used to help eliminate mold colonies. Removing and disposing of mold-infested materials, like drywall and carpeting, may be necessary to remediate heavy mold growth.

Cleaning Contents and Belongings

The process may require cleaning your furniture, decorative items, curtains, clothing, and other restorable items affected by mold.

• Restoration

Depending upon the level of mold damage, drywall, flooring, and other building materials may be removed. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
