What to Expect from Air Quality Express's Mold Removal Service
Of course, mold removal and damage repair is a lengthy, complex process. You should therefore keep in mind several factors regarding the mold removal process, including:
Can You Remove Mold Without a Professional?
Some mold can be removed without the help of a licensed professional. But that is only the case where there are small, sporadic occurrences that are under 10 square feet. But in many cases, the mold is more widespread. If this is the case, or if it occurs in hard-to-access areas, we recommend you use our professional mold removal services.
Can Mold Removal be Covered by Home Owners Insurance?
Mold removal costs can be significant especially if you are dealing with widespread proliferation. For instance there is the process of inspection, followed by the actual cleanup not to mention the use of sophisticated equipment. While we do understand the need to keep costs low, it is highly recommended that you avoid cheap mold removal services. That is because you may still pay a steep price later on when the mold recurs in even greater intensity.
Fortunately, most homeowner’s insurance does cover mold damage. Check with your insurance agency to discuss your unique situation.
Only Use a Licensed Contractor
There are a lot of contractors who purport to be mold removal and remediation experts. In this day and age when everyone wants to get a good deal, there is a tendency to hire the cheapest contractor who presents their services. This can be a grave mistake.
Professional mold removal requires extensive knowledge mold, how it grows, spreads and its root causes. Licensed mold removal companies also have the pertinent equipment and protective gear to handle the hazardous task of eradicating mold.
Hiring the cheapest company out there may result in even higher costs later. That is because they tend to cut corners when dealing with mold and may not have the necessary know-how to deal with hard-to-access areas. As a result, mold regrows later and causes even more problems.
Our Mold Removal Process
Air Quality Express has extensive knowledge and expertise when it comes to mold removal and remediation. We have over 200 fiver-star reviews from satisfied customers. Here is our process:
Appropriate Protective Gear
As licensed mold removal experts, we understand that mold spores are hazardous to health. In fact the spores are toxic to the respiratory system. The same goes for some of the cleaning detergents used in the mold cleanup process. That’s why our technicians wear N-95 respirators and vinyl or neoprene gloves. Depending on the extent of the mold removal job, they may also wear a protective suit.
Dealing with Water Leak
In most cases, mold is caused by the presence of water and/or excessive moisture. Our licensed technicians understand that in order to thoroughly deal with problem of mold, they must address any issues arising from water leaks. They use advanced drying techniques to eradicate all water and excess moisture in order to deny mold the opportunity to regrow.
Isolating the Mold-Contaminated Area
Before we can deal with mold, our technicians cut off the mold-contaminated room(s) to the other areas of the house or office. We do this by sealing off doorways and other openings with 6-millimeter polyethylene sheeting and duct tape. This containment procedure stops mold spores from spreading further in the course of mold removal.
To further prevent the presence of mold spores in the air, we perform dust suppression. This includes gently cleaning affected surfaces with a special detergent and misting the air to bind to mold spores. We then use HEPA vacuums at the source of dust production.
Remove Wet and Moldy Porous Materials
Soft, porous materials such as insulation, drywall, or carpet can be compromised if exposed to mold. Our technicians completely remove affected porous materials and discard them in 6 mil thick double plastic bags. We then take these bags out via normal trash disposal once wiped down with the proper detergent.
Clean the Affected Area(s)
Our technicians fully sanitize the remaining surfaces in the containment area after removing the infected porous materials.
First, we thorough scrub surfaces with wire brushes to uproot the mold colonies. We then wipe surfaces down with disposable antimicrobial cloths. Finally, we clean them with damp rags and detergent. Our technicians dispose of cleaning materials the same way as the porous materials.
Depending on the extent of the mold contamination, surfaces may also be cleaned with a HEPA vacuum.
Rapidly Dry Surfaces
Afterward, fans and dehumidifiers will be used in the contaminated area to speed up the drying process.
