Getting rid of moldy material

3/3/2018 (Permalink)

Small water leaks can become large mold problems.

When you discover mold in your building, call in the experts in dealing with mold.

We can't even count how many jobs we have done because either internal maintenance crews or even outside contractors didn't know how to properly handle mold removal. 

Once proper containment is in place and control of the air is maintained, mold can be addressed. If carpet, drywall, wallpaper and insulation has mold growing on it, it is probably going to need to be removed. The affected material is removed from its location and is then properly bagged.

Those bags need to be properly handled to ensure that mold is not carried out of the containment area and allowed to spread into the air and onto other unaffected materials. 

Once all mold affected material has been removed, all of the surrounding areas can be cleaned and HEPA vacuumed to ensure all of the mold spores have been removed.
