How to Get Rid of Mold
Finding the Black Mold Source: First step to getting rid of black mold is finding the moisture source(s). Skipping this step will guarantee that you will have mold growing back in the future and will have to deal with your mold problem once again. Finding the moisture source could mean that you have a leaky pipe behind your shower wall, leaking behind cabinets or under flooring, a cracked foundation, or a leaky roof. Our technicians use state of the art moisture detection systems that will find the water or moisture source so that we can provide you a solution to rid you of your mold situation.
Mold Removal: Second step is the mold remediation process. This includes setting up containment to prevent cross-contamination and spreading mold spores to other areas of your home or business, cleaning the mold, setting HEPA air scrubbers to clean the air, HEPA vacuuming, drying the area, and treating the area.
People who are sensitive to molds, those who have environmental allergies or suppressed immune systems, may experience “nasal stuffiness, throat irritation, coughing or wheezing, eye irritation, or, in some cases, skin irritation,” according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention . And though people without sensitivity to molds and mildews may experience no health problems, it’s still best to proceed by keeping mold and mildew contained to avoid future issues from evolving.
