Understanding the difference
What is mold remediation?
-Remediation is basically mold removal through cleaning and disposal. Generally a mold remediation effort can be an expensive process. When containing the area and doing the mold remediation, professional techniques, tools and protective gear must be used.
Mold remediation steps typically include:
Taking air quality and moisture tests to locate, investigate and count the amount of mold spores/mold in your environment.When the area is located, containment of that area is vital to keep the mold spores that will be disturbed from remediation process.Using HEPA filtration and negative air handlers to keep contaminated air out of other areas and filter the mold spores out of the air.Certified, trained and experienced Technicians who wear complete body suits with hood, boots, gloves (taped to suit so no air will enter) and high quality respirators along with goggles.
All contaminated materials to be removed from the contained area are bagged and disposed of properly.Restore the area to original condition, repairing the structure if necessary.
Each contractor will have their own procedures of Mold Remediation for the client to choose from for their home’s or business’s individual need.
