Mold testing

The first step of a mold removal is to thoroughly test the Washington, DC home and see how bad the situation is. Let’s say we received a call from a Washington DC homeowner who had discovered signs of mold in the restroom. The restroom was a smaller unit which also had a washer and dryer in it. We discovered that the fan was not working properly and because of this, water from the shower and the washer and dryer would remain in the room for hours and cause the walls to become damaged. During the mold testing we discovered that three different types of mold were present in that Washington, DC restroom.

We did this by using our thermal imaging technology to get a feel of how the mold removal will need to be done. This let us see that some of the mold had seeped into the back wall which would also need to be removed.

Mold removal

We knew that in order to perform a mold removal on the Washington, DC home, it would be best to have the family out of the home for a day or so to take care of the problem. After setting up a time for the following week that would work well for the Washington, DC family, the mold removal date was set. One week later, we showed up and the family had plans to be away from home for the following 10 hours. We knew that to complete the mold removal on time we would need to work fast.

The first thing that we did was to make sure that each of our crew members for the mold removal were properly equipped with the correct protective gear. According to our mold removal plan, which we had made with the homeowners during our prior visit, we would need to move the washer and dryer unit from the restroom and remove part of the wall.

After planning how we would remove all of the harmful materials, we set to work in cleaning up the area. Mold removal can be a tricky subject as you want to make sure that you have every single piece of it because even if you miss a little bit of mold it will grow into a bigger problem once again. So in order to completely make sure the mold removal would be a success in the Washington, DC home, we would need to remove every single piece of mold.

After cleaning up the wall and removing it, we set to work in clearing out all of the mold that was inside of the wall as well. This ended up taking longer than expected and when it was all finished we only had about two hours left until the family would be back home. Luckily we were able to complete the full mold removal process just within the amount of time that we had planned and we brought their Washington, DC home back to being a mold free zone once again.
