What Is Mold Remediation?

Mold remediation is the process of identifying, containing, and eliminating mold growth within a property, particularly in the aftermath of water damage. Mold, a type of fungus, thrives in moist environments and can proliferate rapidly, posing health risks and structural damage if left unchecked.

Key Steps in Mold Remediation

  • Assessment: The first step in mold remediation involves a thorough assessment of the affected area. Certified technicians inspect the property for signs of mold growth, including visible mold, musty odors, and water damage indicators.
  • Containment: To prevent the spread of mold spores to unaffected areas, we quickly take containment measures. This typically involves sealing off the contaminated area using plastic sheeting and establishing negative air pressure to confine airborne spores.
  • Removal: We carefully remove mold colonies from surfaces using specialized equipment and cleaning agents. Technicians employ industry-approved techniques to ensure thorough removal while minimizing the dispersion of spores.
  • Cleaning and Sanitization: Once the mold is removed, the affected surfaces are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized to eliminate any residual mold spores. High-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filtration systems may be used to capture airborne particles and improve indoor air quality.
  • Drying and Restoration: Proper drying of the affected area is essential to prevent mold recurrence. Structural drying techniques are employed to remove excess moisture and restore the property to its pre-damage condition.

Werner Restoration's Mold Remediation Process

Our process, proven for mold remediation, begins with a detailed assessment of the affected area. We employ state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to identify the extent of mold growth and formulate a customized plan for removal and restoration. Our certified technicians execute the process meticulously, ensuring thorough cleanup and sanitization to prevent future mold recurrence.

  1. Identify the Moisture Source: We must first determine where the moisture is coming from and fix the source of the moisture problem. We will perform a full mold assessment and provide an evaluation of our course of action.
  2. Containment & Air Filtration: Containing the affected area is critical in preventing mold spores from spreading and contaminating other areas of your home or building. Within the containment, we establish negative air to also prevent aerosolized mold spread.
  3. Remove Contaminated Materials: Our trained and certified mold remediation technicians are fully prepared to take all precautions with your home or building as well as yourself by utilizing the proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Proper safety precautions are taken to prevent the spread of mold spores when removing and disposing of contaminated materials such as ceiling tiles, drywall, insulation, carpet, and padding.
  4. Mold Remediation: We can now proceed with the mold remediation process. Some non-porous materials, such as glass and plastic, can be cleaned and dried in place. Wood and other semi-porous materials, depending on the severity of mold damage, can be dried, sanded, and treated with an environmentally safe anti-microbial agent (EPA approved) that is both safe for children and pets.
  5. Post-Remediation Verification (PRV) Testing: The final step in our mold removal process is the Post-Remediation Verification (PRV) Test. This test determines the successful efforts of mold remediation within the contained area and if it is safe for homeowners or building occupants to enter safely.
  6. Reconstruction: Werner Restoration works with you to rebuild your home or building back to pre-loss condition. Let us take the stress out of the reconstruction process by general contracting the coordination of walls, floors, ceilings, carpeting, and other remodeling contractors.

DIY Tips and Preventative Measures for Mold Remediation

Moisture Control Is The Key To Mold Control:

  • When water leaks or spills occur indoors – ACT QUICKLY. If wet or damp materials or areas are dried 24-48 hours after a leak or spill happens, in most cases, mold will not grow.
  • Clean and repair roof gutters regularly.
  • Make sure the ground slopes away from the building foundation so that water does not enter or collect around the foundation.
  • Keep air conditioning drip pans clean and the drain lines unobstructed and flowing properly.
  • Keep indoor humidity low. If possible, keep indoor humidity below 60 percent (ideally between 30 and 50 percent) relative humidity. Relative humidity can be measured with a moisture or humidity meter, a small, inexpensive ($10-$50) instrument available at many hardware stores.
  • If you see condensation or moisture collecting on windows, walls, or pipes, ACT QUICKLY to dry the wet surface and reduce the moisture/water source. Condensation can be a sign of high humidity.

Actions That Will Help To Reduce Humidity:

  • Vent appliances that produce moisture, such as clothes dryers, stoves, and kerosene heaters, to the outside where possible. (Combustion appliances such as stoves and kerosene heaters produce water vapor and will increase the humidity unless vented to the outside.)
  • Use air conditioners and/or de-humidifiers when needed.
  • Run the bathroom fan or open the window when showering. Use exhaust fans or open windows whenever cooking, running the dishwasher, dishwashing, etc.

Actions That Will Help Prevent Condensation:

  • Reduce the humidity.
  • Increase ventilation or air movement by opening doors and/or windows when practical. Use fans as needed.
  • Cover cold surfaces, such as cold-water pipes, with insulation.
  • Increase air temperature.
