One of the worst things that a homeowner or business owner can find out is that they have a mold problem throughout the building. Unfortunately, mold is an ever-present issue in the world, and there are thousands of types of mold spores. However, some can be very dangerous. Any mold found inside a home or business needs to be eliminated as soon as possible by experienced mold remediation companies such as Remediation Group.
Whether you own a residential or commercial property, the appearance and growth of mold spores in the building signify a moisture problem somewhere in the structure. Mold problems are particularly hazardous to both the health of the building occupants and the structural integrity of the home or commercial facility. Mold removal and mold remediation can be challenging because mold tends to hide in hard-to-reach cracks and crevices like the furnace and air conditioner vents. It can also get absorbed into porous materials like wood surfaces. To completely remove mold from your home or business, call on the professionals at our mold remediation company to take on the challenge.
Why Does Mold Growth Happen?
Mold problems develop when there is the perfect combination of moisture, oxygen, warmth, and darkness. Very often, the contaminated areas are first affected by water damage such as flooding. Once the water removal and cleaning process has been completed, the moisture source is not necessarily gone. The affected areas can still be breeding grounds for mold if it is not properly dehumidified with professional equipment during the drying process and if the affected area lacks good ventilation. If you have moldy materials or moldy walls in the room, the musty smell will likely be the first indication, and you probably will not be able to deal with that smell for more than a few days – let alone a few weeks!
Rooms such as the bathroom, kitchen, crawl spaces, and basement, as well as the tough to reach spaces in the HVAC system, can all provide good sources of the conditions in which most mold thrives. Moldy areas can develop quickly, so it is important that when owners find mold, they get it professionally assessed and removed as soon as possible. No one wants to deal with the health issues that often accompany the existence of mold in a home or company.
What Is the Mold Cleanup and Remediation Process?
When our mold remediation experts are called, we go through a very specific procedure to ensure that if mold is present in your residential or commercial buildings, it does not continue to cause health problems such as allergic reactions or mold damage once our job is complete. Once you have had water problems in your facility, mold is probably not too far behind. Mold can sit dormant in drywall, insulation, flooring, air ducts, walls, and other materials that make up the house or office structure, waiting for the right combination to spur on its growth.
We follow these steps during the mold cleanup procedure:
- Evaluation of the property
- Identification of moisture infiltration/lack of proper ventilation
- Inspection of the building envelope
- Evaluation of engineering controls
- Evaluation of mechanical system
- Recommendation of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Testing
- Development of Mold Remediation Protocols
- Performance of actual remediation services
- Scheduling of third part post-remediation verification testing
At Remediation Group, we make sure that any methods and procedures we provide comply with the current standards set forth by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the regulations of the Environmental Protection Agency.
Our mold removal team also uses dry ice blasting to eliminate black mold growing and thriving in your home or business. It is one of the best ways to clean mold from a formerly damp location without spreading any visible or not visible mold spores. Our black mold removal technicians kill mold by blast cleaning surfaces using CO2 pellets (dry ice) in a similar fashion to pressure washing during the cleanup process. It is more effective, though, because it kills mold with less mess since the pellets evaporate upon contact. No residue or byproducts are left behind. Compared to cleaning a moldy wall or other moldy surfaces with sanding, scraping, or wire brushing, the dry ice blasting leaves behind no trace of the mold infestation in the wood grain or other difficult-to-reach places. When you need to remove the mold before it rots damp wood and infests other locations in your home or business, the dry ice blasting technique used by a mold remediation professional at Remediation Group is a sure-fire method.
