A professional mold repair company can expertly assess what damage the mold may have caused and which areas are susceptible to further damage. They also have tools to analyse mold levels to determine if it is safe for people to be in the building. The Mold Remediation Service professionals also know how to avoid other environmental hazards such as asbestos and lead so that the remediation process does not cause unnecessary illness.
Fungal remediation requires an arsenal of tools to remove water and disinfect mouldy areas:
– Vacuum cleaners are designed to remove water from floors, carpets etc.
– A damp cloth, a cloth with water and possibly a cleaning agent are used to remove mildew from non-porous materials.
– HEPA vacuums are used as one of the last cleaning tools after the material is completely dry. The HEPA vacuum picks up contaminated dust that falls outside the sanitized area.
These tools allow for proper disinfection, which is very important because mold can be allergic or toxic, even when it's dead. Vacuum contents and mold-damaged items should be double-wrapped, sealed and discarded. Large items that do not fit in plastic bags should be covered with plastic wrap, sealed with tape, and then disposed of with other construction waste. After cleaning, it may be necessary to install a drying system in the building to prevent future mold growth.
