Our San Diego County, CA Mold Remediation Services Process:
Inspection and Testing
Remediation begins with a thorough understanding of what needs to be done. Our experts take air and surface samples for testing to determine the nature and toxicity of the problem. A visual inspection also assesses the location and extent of the growth and may include borescope inspections inside walls and other building cavities.
Our crews then isolate the affected areas with plastic sheeting to prevent the spread of spores, toxins, and other contaminants. Inside the work area, they’ll also set up HEPA filters along with negative-pressure exhaust fans, so air flows into the moldy areas then directly outside.
While wearing protective equipment and clothing, our specialists will thoroughly remove mold and mold spores using the most suitable approved removal methods, such as chem-wipes and HEPA vacuuming. Affected porous materials such as sheetrock (also called gypsum board and drywall) must be removed and replaced.
Abatement and Decontamination
We’ll follow through by applying non-toxic mildicide and, in exceptional situations, permanently encapsulating porous building materials that we can’t remove. We’ll also take care of surface cleaning, air duct cleaning, and carpet cleaning. Our experts will also determine the source of moisture so it can be corrected. As necessary, our water damage restoration specialists can provide thorough building drying.
