How to Contain a Mold Problem Without Cross Contaminating Your Property and Belongings

Identify the fungal site and where it is growing. Then, determine how far the deposition contamination spread. Once the spores are airborne they spread; those areas need to be cleaned up as well. They may not be visible, but you could be breathing them in without noticing. Wear protective clothing that covers your eyes, lungs. hands, and clothing. Operate source removal. Use an air scrubber, negative air machine, and HEPA filtration system to clean where there is deposition. Conduct a post-test under a microscope for clearance.

Salvage Personal Items:After assessing the initial damage, we’ll walk through your property and remove items from your home or business.

Remove as Much Damage: Once we’ve removed your personal items, we’ll then work to remove the mold. If we’ve identified a particular source, we’ll remove that as well. This is the time when we’ll begin using our cleaning equipment to remove mold from inside your building while filtering the air.

Technologies We Use

Infrared Camera: We rely on infrared cameras extensively when it comes to testing for mold. Our infrared cameras allow us to detect mold in hidden areas, ensuring that we don’t miss a single spore. Infrared cameras give us the ability to see moisture that is trapped in walls and ceilings, which could be contributing to mold growth.

Moisture Meter: The primary cause of mold is moisture. That’s why we use a moisture meter to detect areas where humidity could be hard to spot. We’ll work to identify the cause of the moisture and then dry the area using dehumidifiers to ensure that mold does not return.

Ozone Generator: Our ozone generator sanitizes and deodorizes the air using nothing but oxygen. The machine causes oxygen particles to collide, releasing the deodorant. Not only do we find this beneficial when cleaning the air, but we also find that it helps treat surfaces damaged by mold as well.

HEPA Purifier: Many home and business owners don’t realize that mold isn’t just unsightly but that it can impact air quality as well. Once mold becomes airborne, it can be challenging to remove. Thankfully, we utilize HEPA air purifiers and vacuums to purify air particles, making it safe for you, your family, and your employees to breathe again.
