What is mold and can it be completely removed?

Mold behind wallMold are microscopic and float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors and AC/heating systems, spores can also enter your home by attaching to clothing and pets. Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors and plays a big part in our own ecosystem. Mold cannot be totally removed from your home but it can be brought back to normal natural levels. Mold feeds on celluloses materials and thrives when water is added to the equation, mold spores can grow quickly into colonies.  The water source can be anything from leaky pipe to roofing problem even high humidity can support mold growth, indoor humidity shouldn’t exceed 45 percent. Before the remediation starts it is important to find and correct the water source so the mold problem doesn’t return.

If You smell a strong musky odor there is good chance you may have a mold problem.

Mold growing on wallStep 2-Mold Containment

There are various procedures to prevent the spread of mold. We use advanced containment procedures such as negative air chambers to isolate the contaminated area with physical barriers and negative air pressure to stop mold spores from spreading during the cleanup.  Fans and cooling and heating systems will need to be off during this process so it doesn’t spread mold spores to unaffected areas.

Step 3-Air Filtration

We use high powered air scrubbers and HEPA vacuums to prevent the spread of mold spores during the remediation process.

Step 3-Removing Mold and Mold Damaged Materials

The amount of mold growth and the type material it is on will determine which remediation process is most effective. Removing and disposing of porous materials such as dry wall and carpeting is part of the remediation process most of the time. We use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies and to help prevent the growth of new colonies from forming.
