Whether you think or you know that you have mold, the first step in removing it is to have a professional air quality test done in your home or business. This test will identify the type of mold and the concentration of that mold in your air. Gathering this information will enable us to take the correct steps to remove it as well as serve as a mile marker once the remediation and removal is complete.
Mold travels through the air ways, and the act of removing mold damaged materials will result in a temporary increase in airborne mold spores. Without proper techniques and equipment, you risk spreading the mold throughout your home or business. Our team of professionals use proper protection equipment (PPE) and professional techniques such as negative air pressure, advanced air filtration and complete ventilation containment to safely contain the mold within the affected areas.
After a thorough inspection of the mold damage, we will determine how much, if any, building materials will need to be removed to eradicate the mold while salvaging as much of the affected area as possible. Once the containment measures are in place, our team of mold removal specialists will begin the process of clearing out the mold and preparing for any repairs.
A clearance test is simply a second air quality test that acts as a method of double checking that the mold has been effectively removed and that your home or business is safe.
Mold occurs naturally in nature as a means to break down organic material such as fallen leaves and dead trees. Open windows and doors and ventilation systems allow airborne mold spores to enter your home and settle on surfaces. This only becomes a problem if the mold spores come in contact with some source of water or moisture and begin growing. Here’s how to prevent mold growth in your home.
