What does mold removal service entail?
Mold remediation, commonly referred to as mold removal is the act of addressing mold issues that exist within a structure. Whether that be a commercial or residential space, the process is the same. Proper mold remediation will effectively stop the spreading of mold and keep it contained to isolated areas. The removal of affected items and materials, the clean up of the mold itself, and the elimination of moisture at its source are all part of an effective mold remediation strategy. Below we have outlined our process for assessing the extent of mold damage, containing mold growth and removing it at the source.
H & L Restoration will dispatch a qualified Sunnyvale mold removal professional to your home where they will identify moldy areas as well as locate the source of the problem. Next they will create an action plan for containing the mold.
Once the source of the moisture that is leading to the mold growth is determined, the affected area is closed off to avoid contaminating the rest of your home. This is especially important as mold can spread very rapidly during the clean up and removal process if proper steps are not taken to ensure the right protocols are in place.
One of the most important steps in the mold removal process is proper filtration. This is why a trained professional should be contacted before you attempt to remove the mold yourself! Mold spores travel very effectively in the air. Proper filtration should be set up to clean the air of mold spores and other particles. This is extremely important to prevent spreading.
Personal items, furniture, and draperies are all commonly affected by mold growth. Since mold is a living organism capable of embedding itself deeply into materials as a way of survival, we typically must remove anything porous from a home or business to ensure all mold is removed. H & L will work diligently to ensure that any items that can be saved, are saved. Nonporous materials (desks, picture frames, tv stands) can all be cleaned with our specialized antimicrobial cleaning products. Sometimes depending on the severity of the mold infestation a home or businesses HVAC system may need to be cleaned out as well.
One of the most important parts of the process to ensure that mold growth does not return is proper drying. H & L Restoration and mold removal in Sunnyvale will go over some moisture management strategies and put a protocol in place to ensure your home doesn’t encounter future mold growth issues.
Depending on the severity and location of the infestation some drywall may need to be removed, flooring pulled or internal walls accessed. Rest assured that H & L will return your home to it’s pre-loss conditioning during this reconstruction and repair process.
Following remediation, we search for any signs of recurrent water damage, moldy odors or visible mold to ensure the cleanup has been successful.
