The first step in mold remediation is to remove any moisture holding material from the area, while preventing any spread and contamination of loose spores. Then apply a thorough cleaning to remove any live fungi and spores. At this point it is time to inspect and assess the cause of the water intrusion, correct that problem and then initiate necessary repair work.
Prevent any further water intrusion by checking for contributing factors such as leaking drains, pipes, or ac units and scheduling an annual cleaning and inspection of the exterior of the building. By staying vigilant and responding to early warning signals such as discoloration, peeling, or cracking of walls and trim you may save yourself the expense and experience of a major mold remediation and repair project.
We have found the most severe mold conditions are often hidden within walls and on the back side of sheet rock. When we assess a water or mold problem we will always want to make an inspection hole and check the interior of the affected wall or surface.
A thorough inspection is absolutely necessary to plan a successful mold remediation project.
