Sherwood Park & Edmonton Mold Remediation Experts
Mold remediation is the process of identifying and addressing mold problems in a structure. It is the process of preventing the spread of mold by isolating damaged areas, removing affected material, removing moisture sources, the source of the mold, and finally reestablishing a healthy environment.
What is involved in mold remediation?
Armour Foundation Repair specialists perform mold cleanup and removal to address the damage and health risks associated with mold. Mold cannot be killed by cleaning with bleach and water. Moldy material must be removed and the damaged area rebuilt; thus, mold remediation is best left to a professional who is trained to handle hazardous materials and prevent mold from spreading to other rooms. Expert mold remediation in Sherwood Park and the surrounding Edmonton area includes:
Assessment - A specialist will inspect your home to identify moldy areas and the source of the problem. He will then devise a mold remediation strategy.
Containment - The source of the moisture problem is addressed, and the affected area is sealed off to prevent mold spores from spreading throughout your home during the removal process.
Filtration - Mold spores and other particles will be removed from the air using HEPA filters. To reduce exposure to airborne contaminants, the specialist will also wear goggles and masks.
Removal - Your home's construction materials and personal belongings may be harmed. Because mold is a living organism that ingrains itself deeply into materials in order to survive, it is best to dispose of anything porous. The most effective and safest way to prevent mold from returning is to remove the affected material. Antimicrobial cleaners can be used to clean nonporous materials, and sealants can be used to make treated areas more resistant to water and mold. You may also need to have your heating and cooling systems professionally cleaned.
Drying - It is critical that cleaned and repaired items remain completely dry. Remember that the problem began with excessive moisture. As a result, your Armour Foundation Repair mold remediation specialist will most likely discuss moisture management strategies to prevent future problems in your home.
Repair - After all mold-contaminated materials have been removed, the reconstruction process will begin. What was previously contaminated will be replaced with clean, mold-free materials.
Testing - To ensure that the cleanup was successful, we look for signs of recurring water damage, moldy odours, or visible mold after it has been completed.
Crawl Space Mold Remediation
Mold thrives in dark, damp environments such as basements, attics, and crawl spaces. Mold can grow quickly in these areas if the conditions are right, posing health risks as well as potential structural damage.
Health Risks of Mold
Mold remediation should be done as soon as possible due to the health risks associated with mold exposure. Though the type of reaction depends on the mold present, both the EPA and the CDC agree that all molds have the potential to cause health problems such as:
Persistent cough or cold symptoms
Burning or irritation of the eyes, nose, throat, or lungs
Opportunistic infections in immune-compromised individuals
Types of Mold
There are approximately 50 to 100 common types of indoor mold that have the potential to cause health problems.
