Dehumidification >> Mold Remediation

A constant presence of humidity in no time will start to form mold, and because in most cases mold will reproduce by forming spores that are released into the air. As the mold spores land on a moist, damp surface they will begin to multiply. Mold will penetrate right through porous materials and release toxic chemicals that could cause infections and ultimately having the possibility of causing asthma and other long-term respiratory problems. So it's best to Mold Remediation.

  1. When faced with a high humidity problem, whether it's from some sort of storm damage or maybe a burst pipe a Mold Remediation plan is the best solution. The top priority will be to and the source of moisture, in the case of a storm repairing a broken window or the roof damage will stop the moisture from entering your home. If the moisture is caused by a broken pipe, turn off your plumbing until a professional can make the repairs. Once the threat of further exposure to moisture has ended then we extraction of the water or moisture can begin.
  2. Determine how large of an area has been affected by the water damage and the types of materials that will need Mold Remediation. It is very important to form a strategy for the remediation project to be as efficient as possible and also to protect the workers from any kind of mold exposure. Make sure the Mold Remediation cleaners are wearing their protective gear such as breathing respirators and gloves. Failure to do so could result in long-term breathing problems. If some of the materials cannot be dried or cleaned by using normal methods they must be discarded in a way that it will not cause exposure to the occupants.
  3. After the materials such as drywall, carpeting and other flooring has been disposed of the personal property will have to be gone through to see what can be salvaged or thrown away. In some cases the baseboard will need to be removed to gain access to the bottom of the walls for complete Mold Remediation. Also if there were any cabinets involved in the water damage they must be inspected to determine if they can be salvaged and if they can what process will be taken to extract the water from under them. In most cases cabinets are made from high density fiber board, this material is basically sawdust that is compressed together and held with adhesive. If moisture soaks up into these cabinet frames, the material begins to swell and as it dries it will start to separate, and ultimately will crumble.
  4.  It is a good idea to wash down every surface, for nonporous hard surfaces they can be fully cleaned using a solution of 1/2 cup typical household bleach mixed with a gallon of water. Never mix any cleaning products that contain ammonia with bleach. Assess the Mold Remediation damage to any semi-porous materials such as concrete or wood, determine if they are structurally sound and if so they can be cleaned using the same solution.
