What Is Mold Remediation?

Mold remediation is a multiple-step process that helps push mold levels back to its natural levels. This article will explain the step-by-step process and the differences between mold removal and remediation.

  • Inspection: After calling a trusted mold remediation company, your home is thoroughly searched for signs of mold and what types of mold it may be. Different types of mold require different types of remediation.
  • Containment: The areas with mold are contained to prevent spreading into other areas within your home. This includes, but is not limited to, turning off heaters, fans, and cooling systems and may require physical barriers with negative air chambers.
  • Air Filtration: Air filters are put through the home’s HVAC unit and used to clear the house of active pores to prevent them from turning into more mold. HEPA vacuums may also be used if the active pores have already settled and started growing.
  • Clean Up: Antifungal and antimicrobial cleaners and solutions are used to clean the existing mold to prevent future formation. Non-porous and hard locations are not as hard to clean versus walls and wood floors.
  • Sanitize: Once the clean up is done, you must sanitize your home by cleaning your clothes, furniture, and other miscellaneous items.

Mold Remediation vs. Removal

Compared to mold removal, remediation focuses only on problematic areas of the house where mold has grown. It does not require the removal and replacement of any walls or floors. Mold removal is a more extensive process due to significant mold growth, which may have spread throughout the house and could affect your health.
