If your home is found to be in danger of developing dangerous mold growth, you should take the next steps. It is best to have your house tested for mold growth. It is the best way to avoid the health risks associated with high levels and mold spores in your indoor air.
These steps will help you to successfully remove mold and make your Mold remediation process as efficient as possible.
1. You should ensure that there is clear access to the mold remediation area.
Mold remediation requires extensive equipment. It is important that you keep the area where mold remediation will take place free from obstructions. It is important to keep your pets and children away from the area that will be treated for molds. The remediation company should have access to the garage and any other space that is near the area where they can lay plastic sheathing or hoses.
2. Step 1: Use a Biocide to kill the mold
Mold removal is done in two ways. Spray the mould colonies with an EPA-approved biocide first. Allow at least one day for the biocide to dry after it has been sprayed to a suitable area.
The solution will continue to kill mould spores even after the treatment is finished. The remedial process will commence the next day.
3. Step 2: Apply an Encapsulant to the Remediation Area
It is not enough to completely clear an area of molds and spores from the first step described. After one day of treatment with an approved biocide has passed, the remediation zone must be sprayed with paint or whitewash to seal out any mold spores remaining.
This will ensure that there is no future mold growth after the remediation process. The treatment should extend beyond the area of remediation to ensure that all mold colonies are eliminated.
