Whenever you have more than 10 square feet of mold growth inside your home in Manassas, VA, you should always call in a professional mold remediation company such as the team at Envirotex Environmental Services.
Mold remediation differs on affected surfaces. Porous materials, including drywall, carpet, and insulation must be removed entirely from the Manassas, VA home. These materials should be properly disposed of to ensure complete mold spore removal.
Non-porous materials and semi-porous materials, including wood and concrete, can remain in your Manassas, VA home, and be properly cleaned with special chemicals.
A mold remediation company will come to your home in Manassas, VA, assess the situation, and map out a plan for the process. Depending on your particular situation, different steps may be used.
Protective Clothing—You should see people walking around in disposable coveralls and shoe coverings wearing goggles and respirators; this is for their protection against mold spores that infiltrate into the air.
Containment—This step should never be ignored during mold remediation. The purpose of containing the moldy area is so that any mold spores released into the air will not filter into the rest of your home in Manassas, VA.
Wet Misted—The moldy areas will be lightly wet misted to prevent mold spores from flying into the air.
Special cleaners—Some surfaces will be washed down with special cleansers and dried so that further mold will not grow.
Final Cleanup—HEPA vacuums will be used during the final cleanup once all materials have finally dried, and the contaminated materials have been removed from the home.
Any porous materials will be torn out and placed into heavy-duty garbage bags and removed from the Manassas, VA home, and later loaded on the mold remediation company’s vehicle where they will subsequently be disposed of at a landfill.
