Why is it important to choose someone who is experienced in mold remediation?
Mold can be dangerous. There are three basic steps to getting rid of mold. You isolate the mold, clean the area, and the repair any materials or items that have been damaged. If any of these steps aren’t performed correctly, then them old will return. You can even face serious health problems because of mold.
Isolate the Mold
One of the first steps that our experts will take is to seal off the affected area. If the mold is contained to a single room, then plastic sheeting is usually sufficient. In some cases, however, the entire structure needs to be vacated until it is made safe.
Clean and Disinfect
Once the area is isolated the cleaning process begins. Our team may use personal protective equipment, or PPE. This can include masks or air filters, boot covers or disposable shoes, disposable clothing, gloves, and eye protection such as goggles.
Some websites advise you to use household cleaners such as vinegar or bleach to get rid of mold. While these will take care of the visible areas, they won’t kill of mold spores or take care of the growth beneath the surface. At RestorePro Inc, we use special moldicides approved by the EPA specifically to get rid of mold.
Repair and Replace
Porous materials like carpeting and drywall usually need to be removed and replaced. Metals, glass, and plastics can often be cleaned, but not always. Wood can sometimes be salvaged with a thorough cleaning and refinishing. Our team will stay in contact with you and your insurance claims adjuster to make sure that everyone stays on the same page. Decisions on whether to clean or replaces items often depends on the amount of damage and the costs involved.
