What Happens During Mold Removal in Manassas, VA?

Mold spores are microscopic and float in the air. Mold can be present anywhere, inside and outside your home in Manassas, VA. These spores may enter your Manassas, VA home through doors, windows, or AC/heating systems. They can also ride in on your clothing or your pet.

Mold spores thrive on moisture and multiply into colonies when exposed to water. Before starting mold removal at your Manassas, VA home, you must address the water or moisture sources causing mold growth. If not, you will continue to have a mold issue at home.

Each mold removal will be different for each individual scenario. But typically, an inspection and mold damage assessment will occur before mold removal. Once the mold is detected and damages noted, a professional mold removal specialist will use several different containment procedures to prevent the mold from spreading during the mold removal process.

An advanced containment procedure, such as negative air chambers, may be used to isolate the mold–contaminated area with physical barriers and negative air pressure to keep the mold from spreading during the cleanup process. Any fans and heating and cooling systems will be turned off to prevent mold spores from spreading throughout the rest of your Manassas, VA home.

Mold removal specialists will use specialized filtration equipment to capture microscopic mold spores out of the air. Powerful “air scrubbers” and HEPA vacuums are used to prevent the spread of spores during the mold removal process.

Depending on the amount of mold growth inside your Manassas, VA home and the types of surfaces where mold appears, antifungal and antimicrobial treatments are used to eliminate mold colonies and new ones from forming. Most likely, mold–infested porous materials such as drywall and carpeting will need to be safely removed from the home to stop mold growth.
