Stabilizing the Environment
First things first, our mold remediation crew is going to need to stabilize the environment. In this case, your home. Mold tends to grow in areas that are warm, wet, and humid, the standard Florida climate. However, if your home reciprocates this climate and is warm, wet, or humid, then behold, mold will grow. To stop this growth and make the environment one that is unattractive to mold, we are going to need to stabilize your home. We do this by making sure there is no moisture in the air. Once this is done, we will move on to vacuuming up and sanding down the areas of the home with the worst mold growth. This is most likely to be areas that are near water pipes, areas that get hot, and areas that are don’t have much ventilation.
Air Quality Testing
We are then going to want to check out the air in your home. This is the part that mostly concerns your health. Mold spores travel throughout the air, usually unnoticed, and are breathed in by you and your loved ones. This can cause some issues in the respiratory system and cause you to feel itchy. We do this so we can further confirm our mold suspicions and get more information on what kind of mold we may be dealing with. While you need remediation if mold is physically spotted, doing an air test can give our team at Dean Michell Group some more insight. This will help us further remediate the home and make our efforts that much more effective.
Return the Home to Livable Conditions
Once the mold is addressed and cleaned up, we can then move on to making your home inhabitable again. During the molding process, and with mold, it’s always better to steer clear of the home. This is in part for your health and safety, but also so you don’t have to live in a home that is being worked on. During this step, we will go in and fix up any walls, floors, and ceilings that have become victims of mold damage. This can be as simple as patching up an area or as large as completely re-building a wall. Depending on how soon you call us and how far along the mold grew will determine how much home damage needs to be fixed. The good news is that once this step of the process has been completed, you can have peace of mind that your home is safe to live in. Any evidence of mold will be completely wiped out.
