Mold Remediation vs. Removal

One thing that many people are unaware of is the fact that mold spores exist almost everywhere. They typically settle and grow on surfaces that are exposed to a high level of moisture. It’s impossible to completely remove mold from a house. The word “remediation” is etymologically related to the word “remedy.” Thus, what you are doing is remedying the problem, effectively ridding yourself of affected areas.

Preparation

As spores are likely to be disturbed and spread into the air, a mold remediation team will begin by suiting up with what looks almost like the costume of a hospital cleanup crew in a bad movie. They’ll wear a filter mask, gloves, goggles, and a full body suit. The room to be treated will likely be sealed off to prevent spores from spreading to the rest of the house. The room will then be set up to have negative pressure by aiming fans out the window, therefore encouraging the disturbed material to leave the house.

Removal

At this stage of the process, a significant part of the goal is containment. Disturbed spores can spread very easily to other surfaces. To prevent this, a team will start by moistening dried growth with a spray bottle, which goes a long way in keeping it settled. Next, they’ll use some such product as bleach, ammonia, hydrogen peroxide, or vinegar to wipe down the room’s surfaces and kill any growth. After this, the room is left to dry and will then by thoroughly suctioned with a HEPA filtered vacuum cleaner to remove any residual material.

Afterward

At this point, the mold remediation process is completed by removing any affected, moldy cleaning materials from the house in sealed plastic bags. The team will move through the house from room to room, completing the entire process for each affected area until the whole house is clear.

Once everything is done, homeowners will be pleased to know that it’s totally fine to use any previously infested surfaces. A good cleaning crew will have made it perfectly safe. Of course, it’s best to check the certifications and reputation of anybody you hire to do this or any type of home restoration service.
