Is there mold in your house?

Read more about mold remediation.

If you are exposed to mold for prolonged periods, your health can be adversely affected. Red or itchy eyes, itchy skin, stuffy nose, headaches and respiratory problems are all signs of the presence of mold around you. Mold can cause asthma and other unpleasant health conditions if not catered to immediately. You can either opt for mold removal or mold remediation. We will discuss how they are different below.

Mold Removal

Complete removal of mold is quite difficult as mold is present in the form is spores and there is a natural presence in the air at all times. When this level reaches unnatural quantities is where it becomes a concern. Removing mold with some water and bleach won’t get rid of it; just make it invisible to the naked eye. The best step is to control the growth and after the initial removal by professionals, the safest bet is to keep your home clean and dry so mold doesn’t have favorable conditions to grow.

Mold Remediation

This is a process that covers several steps and handles the cause of the mold outbreak along with helping prevent it from spreading again.

–      Inspect the Mold

The first step you need to take is to have the mold inspected. Visible signs of mold will be located, along with air samples being taken to assess the type of mold. The type of mold helps experts determine the remediation process to control the outbreak along with informing them of the level of contamination which is done through the spore count.

–      Contain the Mold

Any areas that have been affected by mold are sealed. Mold spreads very easily, even through the air so containment is done through physical barriers at times by way of negative air chambers and negative air pressure. The property’s fans, air conditioning and heaters are turned off as this would assist the spores to travel more easily in the air and spread mold damage.

–      Filter the Air

Air filters of high efficiency are added to the HVAC unit of the house so active spores are cleared out. If the spores remain, they would turn into fungi and this would prevent it. If the contamination level is higher, HEPA-filtered vacuums are also used to cater to mold settled on surfaces.

–      Clean the Mold

Products that are anti-fungal and antimicrobial are used to clean the mold. This method of cleaning ensures no further mold forms. The cleaning method is depending on the location and material of the build-up. Locations that are hard and non-porous like a bathtub or a sink are cleaned with a safe biocide. Places that are porous like wooden floors and walls are inspected, and depending on the extent of the growth, removed and replaced.

–      Sanitize the Space

The final step of the mold remediation process is sanitizing the space. Any furniture, clothes, curtains, etc. are cleaned while fogging equipment is used to deodorize all the belongings and clean the air to make it safe again.
