What is Mold Remediation

Mold remediation is a two part process.
1. Removing Mold
2. Removing the cause of the mold.

1. Removing the Mold
Mold Removal is a fairly detailed process. The area must be thoroughly sealed with filtered fans (HEPA filtered fans) discharging to an outside area. Air in the containment area cannot recirculate or the spores will return. All debris must be bagged under containment and removed from the premises entirely. Specific moldicide must be used to kill any random spores in and outside of the containment area. If any of these steps are skipped or done in error mold will very likely return. Sadly, the mold may return even if all these precautions are performed correctly. This is why the second step is critical to success.

2. Removing the Cause of the Mold
The second stage is removing the cause of the mold. This is nearly always either a leak or some other source of water. It may be a plumbing, foundation, AC, roof, gutter, bathroom or kitchen leak. Whatever it is it must be repaired. Failure to do so will only result in the return of the mold.
