Mold removal is not something to be taken lightly and it can be dangerous. The proper protective clothing such as P100 filtered mask, suit and protective gloves should be worn during mold removal.
Removing the mold causes it to become airborne in huge numbers (in the millions), whereas if left untouched and undisturbed, the airborne spores would have been minimal in comparison to the disturbed mold. To avoid cross contamination (airborne mold spores spreading throughout your home) a proper work area containment needs to be put in place around the work areas.
Sometimes the homeowner or landlord thinks they can remove it themselves, not using the proper procedures they end up unknowingly cross contaminating the entire home. Typically people in mold polluted homes come down with rashes, sickness, allergies, asthma, headaches and weakness.
After we have performed our Mold Inspection and have determined the extent of mold contamination we issue a written quote with a plan of action to remove the mold safely. Our plan includes the requirements for containment, negative air pressure or HEPA air scrubber.
Once the Mold Removal is complete we recommend an air test of your home to ensure the air is normal, from this you will receive an Indoor Air Quality Test report from a third party accredited lab as your clearance report and for your peace of mind!
