Basic Mold Cleanup Techniques

Our mold remediation experts are experienced in proper mold cleanup and know exactly how to treat different areas of your home. Two basic methods they utilize are:

  • Removal of affected materials (for example, drywall)
  • Cleanup contaminated surfaces like framing lumber and other structural elements by using abrasive or aggressive cleaning methods such as soda or dry ice blasting, wire brushing, and sanding

Our experts are also trained in more advanced techniques that are effective in completely removing mold from your home. We’ll examine one advanced technique our professionals like to use for mold cleanup.

Advanced Techniques for Mold Remediation – Use of Hydrogen Peroxide

Technicians make use of 6-8% strength hydrogen peroxide to clean the affected areas. The steps experts follow during cleanup include:

  • Thorough inspection of contamination areas
  • Containment zone is created and negative air pressure developed at work site
  • Materials that cannot be salvaged are removed
  • Structural materials like plywood, framing lumber, etc. are cleaned with the help of hydrogen peroxide after they are HEPA vacuumed
  • After cleaning is completed, a biocide (EPA registered) is applied so any remaining microbes can be destroyed
  • Lastly, all materials are thoroughly dried out, ensuring the moisture content is below the 16% mark

What is the benefit of using hydrogen peroxide?

Our experts’ primary concern when performing mold remediation is removing the contamination instead of killing the mold. Hydrogen peroxide does just that by using a process that chemically burns mold.

Through the oxidation process, hydrogen peroxide destroys all traces of mold from the affected areas. This will prevent the mold from returning.

Moreover, the use of this method is more efficient and reduces the need for scraping, sanding, blasting, wire brushing, and other similar techniques. This reduces the time it takes to complete the mold remediation process.

As we can see, experts have the required knowledge and technical skills to utilize advanced methods so the mold problem can be completely removed from your house within a short period of time.
