What You Need to Know About Mold Remediation

  • Containment – Once our team has identified all the areas of mold in your home or business, we’ll then proceed with the first step of the mold remediation process, which is to seal off the infested areas. We’ll install plastic sheeting around the infested areas to prevent mold spores from escaping while we work. We’ll also install ventilation and air purification systems as an additional precaution against mold spreading.
  • Removal and Cleaning – The next steps in mold remediation are the removal of damaged materials and the cleaning of everything left intact. Some materials are too saturated with mold spores to be saved or too difficult to sanitize properly, so they will need to be disposed of. However, some items and materials can be saved if they are cleaned thoroughly, and our team will make every effort to salvage as much as possible.
  • Clean-Up and Disposal – The final steps in mold remediation are to thoroughly scrub every surface in the affected areas to eliminate any remaining spores, and then to dispose of the damaged materials.
