Step 2: Containment

Those areas of your home that are infested will be closed off from the rest of the home. Specialized equipment such as fans as well as heating and cooling systems may also be used to stop the mold spores from spreading to other parts of the home during the removal process.

Step 4: Filtration of the air

This involves the use specialized air filtration equipment including HEPA vacuums. These are used to remove the mold spores from the air in the contaminated spaces. Removal of mold spores will help to minimize the spread of the spores during the mold removal process.

Step 5: Removal of mold

Any visible signs of mold are removed in this stage. This may also involve removing contaminated materials. Porous materials such as carpeting and drywall are often removed and discarded to prevent repeat infestations. Hard impervious surfaces such as tiles are often simply cleaned to remove the colonies that had formed on it.

Step 6: Cleaning

Items such as furniture, upholstery, clothing and decorative items within the contaminated areas are also cleaned and sanitized to remove mold spores. This is done as a precaution to prevent the establishment of colonies in the future.

Step 7: Restoration

This depends on the level of the damage done by the mold. If the infestation resulted in damage of drywall and other building materials, these materials may have been removed as part of the remediation process. Restoration would involve replacing these materials.

Hiring a professional contractor will ensure that you get great results for the long term.
