Its important to understand that failure to remove any mold contamination, eliminate moisture, and humidity can cause serious long-term health risks. Water in a flooded home, becomes a breeding ground for bacteria, fungi and mold. Containment and remediation procedures of the contaminated area must be completely contained to prevent cross contamination of mold spores. Unaddressed, contaminated materials can allow dangerous mold colonies to spread. We utilize HEPA vacuuming, wet wiping techniques and application of an encapsulant to building materials. Upon completion, post remediation air samples are taken to deem the area ready for reconstruction and remodeling services to complete. All mold growth has a moisture source which must first be determined and eliminated. In some cases it is a matter of high humidity. The first step is a comprehensive evaluation. If there is a large amount of mold an air quality test may be necessary which would include a pre test and a post test to ensure the mold spore count is down to an acceptable level after the Mold Remediation work is completed. Containment barriers along with hepa vacuuming may be necessary during work as well as air exchange systems to prevent cross contamination. Do not attempt to handle mold without having a consultation with a mold remediation specialist.
