What Does The Mold Removal Process Look Like?
The removal stage is critical because it is during this stage that mold spores are most likely to go airborne. That is why it so important to hire a professional mold removal company. A variety of containment procedures will be used to prevent further contamination. One example is the use of negative air chambers to create a physical barrier and negative air pressure to prevent the spread of spores. It is also standard procedure to turn off fans and heating and cooling systems. We highly advise the use of High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) vacuums. These vacuums play a crucial role after all affected materials have been dried and decontaminated. HEPA vacuums are unique in that they have specialized filters capable of catching miniscule mold particles that would typically pass directly through a normal filter. We will design a mold remediation process based upon the exact amount and type(s) of mold that we discover. We commonly use antifungal and antimicrobial agents to prevent the formation of new colonies while eliminating current ones. Depending on the severity of the problem it may be necessary to remove and dispose of items like flooring and drywall.
