By learning more on the mold remediation phases, you can go into the mold cleanup process with a clear understanding on the steps ahead. Our experts have completed hundreds of remediation projects over the years and have a clear strategy for effective resolution. In this latest post, we’ll highlight the steps of the mold remediation process.

Step 1: Repair the Leak

This begins with the identification of the leak issue and the mold damage repair of the problem. Our team will ensure the leak is completely resolved before we move forward.

Step 2: Isolate the Area

We then isolate the area contaminated with mold within the property. We cover doorways and other openings. We shield the windows. This prevents spores moving within the home.

Step 3: Mitigate Dust

We then work to suppress the movement of dust within the contaminated area. This is completed by using misting equipment.

Step 4: Remove Materials

Water and mold-damaged materials will be removed from the home carefully. Our specialists will determine the extent of the damage and the materials which require removal. They’ll consult with you before removing high-value items.

Step 5: Clean the Area

We then begin the cleaning of the affected area using the latest in commercial detergent products. We also vacuum areas within the contaminated space with a HEPA vacuum to ensure effective removal of mold spores. This process is completed by our highly skilled team with years of remediation experience.

Step 6: Complete the Visibility Test

We’ll then complete a visual review of the property to determine the extent of the water damage mold removal process and whether any further cleaning work must be completed to ensure the space is safe in the long-term.

Step 7: Dry the Area

Once we’ve determined that all leftover mold has been removed from the space, we begin the comprehensive drying process. We’ll use high-efficiency drying systems to effectively dry all water-impacted areas of the property. This process helps to protect the structure of the building and ensures the ideal environment for your family’s safe return.

Step 8: Repair and Replace

We then work with you to determine which items require mold damage repair or replacement and then complete the repair and replacement process. Our team has many years of experience in renovation work and can ensure the home is returned to you in peak functional condition.
