What is the Mold Remediation Process?

Aug 3, 2015

If you have a mold problem in your home, your best course of action is always to hire a professional mold remediation service. This is especially true if the mold growth area is larger than ten square feet, or if the mold is toxic. If you’re in doubt about either factor, call the experts. Here’s how the mold remediation process works:

The problem with DIY mold removal, or hiring the cheapest company out there, is that you only tackle the surface problem. Even if you’re able to remove what you can see, how do you know that a deeper problem doesn’t lurk behind the walls? To truly eliminate your mold problem, we examine every inch of the area to identify the source and the extent of the growth. We solve the problem right the first time, because nothing is more important than protecting the health of your family at home.


Complete Analysis

Identifying the source and extent of the mold growth is just the first step in the mold remediation process. After pinpointing the cause of your mold growth, our basement waterproofing experts develop a plan to eliminate it. How can we remove the mold without allowing mold spore to escape in the air? How can we contain the area? What removal solution is most effective? How can we safely clean or dispose of materials, furniture, and belongings that have mold growth? How can we prevent mold from returning after remediation?


The Right Solution

Different types of mold require different solutions. There is a big difference between a toxic black mold like Stachybotrys and Aspergillus, and molds that fall into “hazard class C” and are not known to cause health risks to humans. Even non-toxic mould should be removed, however, as it can cause structural damage to the home. Our mold remediation specialists use professional tools, cleaning solutions and techniques to remove the mold and prevent it from returning to your basement again.

The health of you and your family and the structural integrity of your home are too important to leave to chance. Don’t risk your health on a cheap DIY approach, or turn to the lowest bidder to save money.
