Mold removal is a process
If you think you may have mold in your home…
- The 1st step is to have certified inspectors thoroughly inspect your home.
- They will look in places you might never consider looking.
- They will give you a report of their findings and a detailed proposal for remediation.
- Next, the area in question must be contained.
- Rooms must be isolated.
- Areas like vents, ventilation ducts, cold air returns and other openings must be sealed off.
- Then the mold is treated, preferably with EPA-registered products, which are designed to fight contamination.
- If there are items or materials that cannot be remediated, they must be removed and discarded.
- Such things as drywall, carpet, upholstery, cabinetry or padding
- An extremely important part of remediation is the clean up. It’s essential that all debris and hard to notice particles are properly cleaned up and removed in order to properly complete the process.
- HEPA vacuuming is a must.
- Next, an EPA-registered anti-microbial product should be applied to prevent regrowth.
- Finally, another complete inspection should be held to make sure that all mold has been removed and all areas have been treated with the anti-microbial.
