Understanding The Mold Remediation Process
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.
Step 4: Air Filtration
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.
