Mold Remediation Birmingham Michigan – What is it?
Mold remediation involves mold clean up and removal by addressing the damage and health risks associated with mold. Cleaning with bleach and water will not kill mold. Moldy material must be removed and the damaged area repaired. Mold remediation is best left to a professional trained to handle hazardous material and eliminate the spread of mold and contamination to other areas.
The source of the moisture problem is addressed and the affected area is closed off to avoid contaminating the rest of your home with mold spores stirred up during the mold removal process.
HEPA filters will be used to clean the air of mold spores and other particles.
Building materials and personal belongings in your home can be affected. Since mold is a living organism and deeply ingrains itself into materials to survive, it is best to dispose of anything porous. The safest and most effective way to ensure mold doesn’t return is to remove mold affected material. Nonporous materials can be cleaned with antimicrobial cleaners such as benifect and sealants may be used to make treated areas more resistant to water and mold. You may need to have your heating and air conditioning systems professionally cleaned and sanitized as well.
Mold Damage Repair
The reconstruction process will begin after all mold-contaminated materials are removed. Clean, mold-free materials will replace what was previously contaminated.
Mold testing is performed to determine what gene of mold is present to properly treat and remove it. Following remediation, we re-test the air quality and search for any signs of recurrent water damage, moldy odors or visible mold to ensure the cleanup has been successful.
