Mold remediation refers to the removal of mold from a structure or waterlogged materials such as carpeting and upholstery.
This process typically begins with water extraction to remove excess water from the impacted items, which might otherwise provide additional food for mold spores.
Following water removal, our mold remediation technicians will often use HEPA vacuums to collect any remaining water droplets, followed by air scrubbers and dehumidifiers to reduce humidity levels in the affected area.
After these steps have been completed, mold remediation can include employing chemical biocides or fungicides and/or other techniques such as ozone gas treatment, UV irradiation, or thermal remediation (heat treatments).
If mold finds its way into your home, that’s bad news. On the one hand, it can make you sick if you inhale mold spores. On the other hand, it can weaken your home’s structure and pave the way for more mold growth.
