The process of removing Mold should be handled by a Mold Remediation Company, especially if the affected area is larger than 10 square feet. JW Home Care is an IICRC Certified Firm and specializes in Mold Remediation and uses EPA approved biocides for mold removal.
If there are health concerns or signs of sudden allergies, a mold assessment may be required by an Environmental Company to determine the severity and type of mold, also to determine if it has spread underneath surfaces or behind walls. Determine the cause of the mold, remember mold grows from a wet environment, is there a leak, a broken pipe, a toilet overflow, You will need to repair the source of the mold before the remediation process begins, otherwise, the mold will return in a matter of time.
One of the most important steps to removing mold is to set up a containment and proper ventilation. Air Scrubbers are set up within the containment area to ensure that the mold spores do not spread to other areas, Air Scrubbers should run for at least 3 days.
After containment is set up, the remediation process begins. Depending on the severity and the location of the mold, proper cleaning and disinfecting may not be sufficient enough, JW Home Care uses EPA approved biocides for mold removal. You will need another Mold assessment done to ensure all the mold is gone.
If the mold is hidden within a wall, under carpet or flooring, then areas may need to be pulled/removed. In many cases, affected walls will need to come down, carpet/flooring will need to be removed. If this occurs, you will want to hire a General Contractor to help you with your rebuild project once the remediation process is completed.
