Here is our 5 step mold remediation process:
In case you haven’t noticed yet, everything that we do at RESCON has a very specific process. Mold removal and mold mitigation are no exception. For your knowledge, let us explain what happens after you call our office to solve your mold problem.
Here is our 5 step mold remediation process:
STEP 1: Containment
One of the most important parts of the mold remediation process involves containing the area around where mold was discovered. It’s a very crucial role in the process, as we don’t want mold spores to spread into other areas of the home or business and contaminate non-target areas.
STEP 2: Air Scrubber
In this phase of the mold removal process, we want to create a safe environment for the air inside the building. RESCON will go to work removing air-born mold spores by using an advanced HEPA-filtered air scrubbing machine. This air scrubber acts like a portable filtration system that will attract the mold spores in the air, move them through the scrubber, and ultimately improve the indoor air quality.
STEP 3: Material Removal
Now you get a chance to see RESCON flex our muscles! For effective mold removal and remediation, we now have to turn our attention toward discarding any material that has been contaminated by the mold. Proper mold removal includes disposing of all porous materials that may have been impacted. This can include drywall, insulation, and carpeting if necessary.
STEP 4: Mold Removal
Now that the area is contained, and the contaminated material has been properly discarded, it’s time for RESCON to kill the mold. RESCON applies mold remediation technology to remove the mold. We use a specialized moldicide that is recognized by the EPA and adheres to industry standards. This is a specialty cleaner and sanitizer designed for the mold remediation industry.
STEP 5: Final Touches
The final step in our mold removal process is to treat the material with a specialty fungicide, remove any undesirable stains caused by the mold problem and then apply a mold remediation sealer to stop future mold growth. There you have it. When RESCON leaves the building, you can be sure that your mold issue has been properly handled. For more questions on mold inspection, removal, or mitigation, contact our office.
Harmful Effects of Mold
Mold is one of the most dangerous indoor air quality concerns in the country today. One would think that something so dangerous would need the perfect environment to grow, but all that mold needs to grow is water and an adequate food source. We know how water can get into a building to create mold, but what does mold feed off of in order to multiply?
Mold feeds off of something called cellulose, and it can be found in every room around you. Cellulose is in wood, drywall, rugs, and scores of other items used to construct your home or office. Furthermore, mold can hide very easily. So, just because you can’t see it or smell it doesn’t mean that you don’t have a mold problem.
Because it can appear and multiply so easily, mold has been medically proven to be associated with a whole host of health problems across the world. The mold hiding in your home or office releases spores, and these spores shed particulates that carry many different chemical toxins.
The following list, although not entirely complete, will give you an idea of the many health symptoms and concerns that have been related to mold cases:
- Blurred Vision
- Chronic Pain
- Heart Failure
Children under the age of eleven are even more susceptible to these symptoms. There is also research showing that pets can display these symptoms as well when living in buildings having mold problems.
Persons suspecting that they have a mold problem should consult a physician immediately. Preferably, contact a medical professional that can diagnose and treat mycotoxicosis — or mold toxicity.
