Removing mold can be a simple if you use the right tools. The most important step in the mold removal process is using a certified mold removal company. The professionals use a containment barrier, made from plastic, to keep in all the dust and mold spores. In addition, a negative air machine with a HEPA filter is used to clean the air during and after the mold is removed. After, the entire are is cleaned and disinfected with an anit-bacterial/fungal solution. Following the mold removal efforts a post remediation test can help provide you with a clearance letter; showing that the area is clean and free of mold.

Post Remediation Verification
Our verification of mold free conditions within your workspace is established from the water damage industry. Condition #1 the absence of visible mold colonies within the wall/ceiling cavities. Condition#2 Normal moisture content within the building materials. Condition #3 Clean air samples indoors compared to the outdoors.
Before any mold removal project begins a primary containment should be established and define the work space. Containments help prevent the migration of dust and mold spores from the work space. A containment can be established from plastic and secured with tape.
Drywall, insulation, and other porous materials with visible mold should be removed from the building. After the moldy materials are removed from the building, they are usually double bagged, and then removed from the primary mold remediation work space.
Not all materials are removed from the area during mold remediation. Lumber, tile, concrete, semi-porous, and non-porous materials can be sanded, HEPA vacuumed, and cleaned with an approved anti-fungal/microbial solution. Learn more about mold cleaning now (866) 674-7541.
Mold Removal vs. Mold Remediation
Significant mold growth may require professional mold remediation to remove the affected building materials and eradicate the source of excess moisture. In extreme cases of mold growth in buildings, it may be more cost-effective to condemn the building than to reduce mold to safe levels. The goals of remediation are to remove (or clean) contaminated materials, preventing fungi (and fungi-contaminated dust) from entering an occupied (or non-contaminated) area while protecting workers performing the abatement.
Cleanup and removal methods
The purpose of cleanup is to eliminate mold and remove contaminated materials. Killing mold with a biocide is insufficient, since chemicals and proteins causing reactions in humans remain in dead mold.
We called a remediation company (recommended by a friend) to come in and remove it, and when they asked who our hygienist was and we told them, he was like “Oh man! Robert is really a stickler! He makes sure it’s really clean” Excellent! He was there when they were setting up their equipment to do the removal, and he also came back and did an inspection after they were done (that’s how it’s supposed to work, separate inspection and remediation companies. The final inspection ensures that the remediation was done completely and you won’t end up with another mold problem some months/years down the road). Also, thanks to his spotting the mold, they found that the roof had a tiny leak above the water heater so they were able to fix that instead of us finding that nice little suprise a few years down the road when it would have been a major problem instead of this tiny one.
