Here in Florida it doesn’t take too long for mold or mildew to develop in your home. Sometimes when a water leak is not addressed right away mold can start to form in your home. Once mold starts to grow the health of you and your home can start to deteriorate. That is where we step in. Once you give us a call we will send a certified Applied Microbial Remediation Technician and an assessment of the damage will be made. Also we will send out a third party mold inspector to come and take air and surface samples to see what type of mold that you may have and to check the quality of the air that you are breathing. The mold inspector will write up a protocol of what work needs to be done and we will follow that protocol to make sure the work is done properly. We use a third party mold inspector to do the sampling because if we were to do the sampling ourselves it would create a conflict of interest. Be careful of any mold remediation company who does the mold testing along with the remediation.
The first step into getting your home or business mold free would be to setup negative airflow with air scrubbers and containment so that while we are working no other area outside of the containment will be come contaminated with mold. Once containment has been set up we will box, sort and inventory any items that may need to be taken off site for cleaning or disposal if they have been damaged beyond repair by the mold. All of your contents will then be placed in a climate controlled off site secure storage facility until the mold remediation is complete.
Once we have cleared and contained the working space the real remediation will begin. Carpeting will be taken out for cleaning or disposal and affected dry wall, ceiling and other floor types will either be taken out if the materials are too far gone or left in place for future cleaning. All of the debris that will be a part of the mold remediation process will be taken off site to be disposed of in a proper manner.
The next step in the mold remediation process will be to dry ice blast away the remaining mold that the demolition part of the remediation left behind. All semi-porous materials will be treated in this fashion including wood, framing, plywood, brick, block and concrete. Dry ice blasting is the easiest and cleanest way to remove mold from these semi porous materials.
Once the affected area has been HEPA vacuumed and damped wiped with an anti-microbial our contractors will come in and replace any drywall or carpeting that needs to be put back. Our contractors will make all of the necessary repairs to put your home or business back to pre-mold conditions to make it look new again.
After the construction part of the job is done we will bring back all of your contents. While the job site was being removed of the mold the contents were being cleaned as well. Your contents will receive the upmost care and attention to make sure that they are mold free before they return. The contents will be HEPA vacuumed and damped wiped to completely remove any mold that may be on them.
