Anywhere in Southern California within one hour! Mold can be a dangerous thing, and removing it can be tricky and hazardous. Mold can grow just about anywhere - walls, ceiling, furniture, and even in the floors. While some molds are harmless, other types are highly toxic and can affect your health and wellbeing.
Every mold remediation scenario is different and requires a unique solution, but the general mold remediation process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate the standard best practice solution:
Step 1: Emergency Contact
The mold cleanup process begins when you call our Customer Care Center. Our specialist will ask a series of questions to help us determine the necessary equipment, resources, and personnel.
Step 2: Inspection and Assessment
Precision Environmental professionals will carefully inspect the property for visible signs of mold. Mold feeds on water and can be hidden from plain view. Our team will use various technologies to detect mold and hidden water sources.
Step 3: Mold Containment
Precision Environmental will deploy various containment procedures to prevent the spread of mold. Such as negative air chambers to isolate the contaminated area with physical barriers and negative air pressure to keep the mold spores from spreading during the cleanup process.
Our specialized filtration equipment allows the Precision Team to capture microscopic mold spores out of the air. Then, we utilize powerful “air scrubbers” and HEPA vacuums to prevent the spread of these mold spores while the mold remediation is in process.
Step 5: Removing Mold-Infested Materials
The mold remediation process depends on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces on which the mold appears. Precision Environmental uses antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. In addition, removing and disposing of mold-infested porous materials, like drywall and carpeting, may be necessary to remediate heavy mold growth.
Step 6: Cleaning Contents and Belongings
Our team of professionals will clean your furniture, decorative items, curtains, clothing, and other restorable items affected by mold. We use various cleaning techniques to clean and sanitize your belongings, remove odors, and deodorize using fogging equipment.
Step 7: Reconstruction (Build-Back)
Depending on the level of water and mold damage, drywall, subfloors, and other building materials may be removed. Reconstruction may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, installing new carpet, or significant repairs, such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a property or business.
Mold is one word that can send property owners into a panic, especially in summer of record-high temperatures and humidity. But what really is the dreaded intruder, and could it be the blame for those unexpected summer illnesses?
Mold growth speeds up when it’s indoors. Mold’s tiny reproductive cells, called spores, are easily released into the air, and an enclosed space amplifies their ability to make contact with one another.
Mold contamination is a growing concern for homes and businesses of all sizes. Mold, a fungus found in damp places, can grow almost anywhere moist conditions exist. Mold damage can be hidden and often goes undetected. Our residential and commercial restoration experts have encountered countless mold contamination problems over the last 40 years and are fully equipped to assist you with the removal. We use advanced tools and processes that ensure the problem is eradicated. Our process is in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and back by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
