COIT Mold Remediation Services has the expertise and equipment to handle the job. It is vital to act quickly when faced with mold growth: waiting gives the mold more time and room to grow, causing more damage to structures and contents.
The Mold Remediation Process
1. Sealing Off the Mold
The mold remediation process begins by containing the mold so that it does not spread to additional areas. After photographing and documenting contaminated areas, technicians will contain the contaminated area, including openings to the building envelope, vents to the exterior, and the HVAC system. (The building envelope is the separation between the conditioned and unconditioned parts of the building.) We then create negative air pressure and a HEPA filter exhaust to the exterior to prevent cross-contamination.
Should the mold occur in an attic or crawl space, COIT will follow procedures for crawl space decontamination. And if your furniture or belongings have been affected, we offer inventory and pack-out services, as well as content restoration services.
2. Humidity Control
The first step to killing mold is to remove the environmental conditions that breed it: too much moisture. Technicians create a detailed drying plan to safely remove moisture as efficiently as possible. They then extract standing water, using specialized tools such as air movers and dehumidifiers to continue dehumidification until target Equilibrium Moisture Content (EMC) has been reached.
3. Mold Removal
After the space is dry, technicians use a HEPA vacuum on all surfaces. HEPA vacuums utilize extremely fine filters which can remove even tiny particulates, leaving air clean.
After vacuuming, all surfaces are washed with detergent. Finally, we HEPA sand any visible contamination.
Finally, our mold remediation technicians complete a clean and seal of the furnace and duct system. They will remove the negative air and containment systems, and end by photographing the space to document the mold removal.
