What Is Mold Remediation?
Mold remediation is the indirect cleanup and removal of problematic mold-infested areas. Mold growth spreads fast and destroys surfaces and your premises’ construction materials. Mold remediation focuses on stabilizing your building and reducing mold levels.
Mold remediation returns mold levels to acceptable levels. The process cleans up spores, so the levels are no longer harmful. Many companies also fix the initial cause of mold outbreaks. For example, the experts assess moisture levels to determine if water damage restoration is necessary.
3 Steps of Mold Remediation
Mold remediation companies follow different processes to achieve the same goal. So, the steps may vary slightly, but the basic remediation processes include:
Inspection and Assessment
Experts examine your property to identify the mold type and source. Molds often grow in places exposed to water or moisture. Sink cabinets, basements, window seals, and bathrooms are typical areas of concern.
Mold spores are microscopic and can move in the atmosphere and settle on different surfaces. So, mold remediation isolates contaminated areas before cleanup and removal.
Containment minimizes the effects of cross-contamination to nearby areas. The aim is to prevent further exposure to mold spores by your household inhabitants.
The experts guide you through preventive measures to prevent future mold issues and regrowth.
Steps to take include:
- Installation of dehumidifiers and air conditioners to maintain clean humidity levels
- Timely repair of water leaks to avoid moisture damage
- Regular cleanup of gutters to prevent clogs and blockages
- Proper ventilation and air circulation
- Get regular mold testing.
