Our Mold Removal And Cleanup Procedure

Water Extraction

Moisture is a major cause of mold growth. After stopping any leakages, we will remove all the unwanted water until the area is dry. CleanedMold spread all over the walls up areas will also be dried. This will ensure that mold spores have no place of survival. Water removal is also done on your assets which include furniture, carpets and other wet or damp items. If left with the moisture, mold will grow back.

After removing all of the water from your property, we will use our advanced tools and equipment to measure the amount your indoor humidity. We will keep regulating moisture levels until everything is dry.

Dust Containment

Dust easily floats in the air and offers ideal transport to mold spores. To prevent the spread of the spores, we seal off the contaminated area from safer areas of your property and clean each room separately. To ensure that air in the room flows outside, we will place a fan near an open door or window to create negative air pressure that will lead air in the room to flow outside.

Mold Cleanup

If your property has mold colonies, then the source of the moisture or water has to be dealt with first. When we arrive at your property, we will identify the source of the water and stop it from further leakage into your property before we begin the cleaning process. Mold is very messy. We may use water to moisten contaminated areas before we begin the cleaning process. For the mold that has existed in an area for long, the contaminated zones will usually be dry. We use highly specialized equipment to extract as much mold as we can. Surrounding areas will also be cleaned too to remove any microscopic spores that might have spread to those zones.

After cleaning all contaminated areas, we will then sterilize all the contaminated areas including your belongings. We will also disinfect the affected area and items that can be salvaged. Porous items infected with mold cannot be salvaged and are therefore safely disposed to avoid the spread of mold. Though drying follows the cleanup process.

Safe Disposal of Mold

We put your safety first. After our mold removal and remediation experts finish up their job, all the mold colonies and mold-infested materials will be safely collected and disposed of in a plastic bag or container. We will then ship away these materials for safe disposal away from your property or neighborhood because mold is airborne. Mold disposal concludes our remediation process. We, however, like to come back after some time to see if there are any signs of mold growing back. Avoiding the spread of moisture in your property is one of the best ways we would advise you to observe and prevent mold growth.
