Mold Removal – Why and How

Mold Removal

Mold Removal

Professional mold abatement is a careful, step-by-step profession process involving the use of highly specialized equipment and cleaning agents. There are many details involved in doing this process correctly. But the overall process can be broken down into some general steps, as follows:

  • Containment. Contain is the work area designed to prevent cross-contamination of spores to non-affected areas of the building. We will design and build the proper containment area when removing and leave this containment system up when repairing the drywall that was removed, keeping drywall dust away for the rest of the home.

  • HEPA Air Scrubbing. Clean the air using commercial-grade and industrial-strength air scrubbing machines. These machines use what are known as HEPA filters, which are designed to capture 99.97% of all airborne and microscopic  spores which pass through the filters.  This process helps to improve air quality in the room(s) where the air scrubbers are placed and prevent spores from circulating to other rooms.

  • Selective Demo. Carefully remove the negatively impacted building materials. Focus is on controlled demo and abatement in order to prevent kicking and stirring up additional spores as much as possible.

  • HEPA Vacuum. Vacuum the contaminated area using what are known as HEPA filters, which are designed to capture 99.97% of all airborne and microscopic  spores which pass through the filters.

  • Antimicrobial Cleaning. Clean the contaminated area with hospital-grade antimicrobial cleaning agents to kill any additional or future growth.

  • HEPA Vacuuming & Clean-Up of Work Area. The final step involves HEPA vacuuming and performing an antimicrobial wipe-down on surfaces where  mold spores may have settled within the work area.  Once the job has been double-checked for quality, containment is taken down and the customer has been informed of a successful Removal.
