What to Do During Mold Remediation Procedures

May 21, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 226

When you decide to have your house tested for the presence of a dangerous level of mold growth, and the test turns out to indicate that your house is indeed in danger, what should be your next step? The answer, of course, would be to implement a mold removal and remediation procedure. Obviously, it would be the best measure to prevent the number of health risk that is associated with high levels of airborne mold and mold spores that contaminates the indoor air that you breath.

The following steps are needed for a successful mold removal and remediation procedure that may come handy:

1. Make Sure That There Is A Clear Access Towards the Mold Remediation Area.

Mold remediation is an intensive process that requires the use of equipments. So it is very important to keep the area to undergo remediation clear of any obstruction. For example, you should keep your pets away from it, as it might interfere with the remediation process, apart from risking exposure to any biocide that will be used to contain the molds. Where possible, the garage or any space near the remediation area should be made available for the remediation company to use, as they will need to lay plastic sheathing and hoses towards the area all the way from their truck.

2. Step One: Exterminate the Mold with a Biocide

Mold remediation is a two-step procedure. The first step to do is to spray the mold colony with a biocide that is approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). After a sufficient amount of an EPA approved biocide is applied, leave it for a day. The treatment solution used will start and continue working to kill the mold spores, preparing the remediation process for the second step the next day.

3. Step Two: Spray the Remediation Area with an Encapsulant

The first step as described above is not enough to totally clear an area from molds and its spores. After a day of being treated with an approved biocide, the remediation area needs to be sprayed with a type of paint or whitewash that serves to encapsulate any remaining mold spores. This process ensures that any succeeding mold growth will be impossible after the remediation procedure. It should be noted that treatment should go well beyond the remediation area if only to make sure that the process has completely eliminated all mold colonies.
