Discovering extensive mildew or fungus growth within your home or business can be pretty disheartening, not to mention stressful. After all, mold can pose some serious risks to your health if left ignored, in addition to decreasing the overall value of your property. If you’re trying to sell your home but have been battling persistent mold growth, making the sale is likely going to be quite difficult. Mold can give your home a noxious odor that can require significant deodorization, which is another factor that definitely isn’t playing in your favor. With all of these negatives, it’s a wonder people allow mold growth to get out of hand in the first place. But, it happens all the time and that’s why the professionals have to be called in. Let’s take a deeper look into the removal process…
Step One: Mold Testing
While you might think the only testing required for mold growth is spotting it, that is not the case. Just because you see it does not mean testing is not required. Also, what you might not know is that when you test for mold, experts can determine where all areas of mold growth are located throughout the structure. They can also pinpoint what kind of mold is being dealt with. Testing ensures all areas are targeted when moving forward with the remediation process.
Step Two: Mold Removal
Next, the areas impacted by mold must be contained. Spores from the mold can float around in the air once dislodged, which can then lead to new areas of mold growth depending where the spores settle. To keep this from occurring, air vents and other entry points are completely sealed off. The removal team will then kill the mold in its place before moving forward with removing the surfaces with growth on them. The mold has been officially dealt with once the crew has removed all contaminated materials from the building. The deodorization process then takes place due to the pungent musty odor left behind.
Step Three: Restoration
Since some parts of your home or business will have to be taken out during the mold removal process, restoration work must be performed. Your hired professional crew will go through and replace all missing materials using only quality supplies. Some mold removal companies do not offer restoration services, so you may potentially have to hire a third party for this part of the process.
