What should you expect when having residential mold remediation performed? First and foremost, you should expect a safe process – one that is safe to you and your family, safe to the environment and safe to the technicians doing the work.
Mold is potentially dangerous, we all know that. For this reason, Mold Removal Philadelphia takes every precaution when working around this substance to make sure no risk is posed to human health.
The first step in residential mold remediation is making sure our employees have on the appropriate protective clothing. We sometimes work with gigantic levels of contamination, and we need to be fully protected.
Next, we secure the area we’ll be working in. This involves using heavy plastic to seal off any vents, windows, doorways, etc. that may be in the work space. Once the area is secure, we further protect against cross contamination by using machines known as air scrubbers to filter the air at a high rate.
Then comes the use of HEPA vacuums that will pick up the smallest mold spores from surfaces. We’re thorough in this process, making sure every surface is gone over.
If mold exists in places our technicians can’t reach, residential mold remediation uses directional foggers with an environmentally friendly fungicide to kill the mold. In areas where we can reach, we use various implements such as electric sanders, wire brushes, grinders and sandpaper to physically remove the mold.
When the mold is gone, we use an anti-fungal substance similar to paint to coat formerly moldy surfaces. The coating will not harm or bother humans, but it will prevent future mold growth. Finally, we breakdown the work area and restore it to its original state for you to live in and safely enjoy.
It starts with a thorough residential mold inspection. If you suspect the presence of mold in your home, don’t put it off. Call Mold Removal Philadelphia today at (610) 710) 1414.
