What To Expect During Your Mold Remediation

What To Expect During Your Mold Remediation

Mold can be hazardous to your health, and it’s important to make sure the entire organism is killed, cleaned out, and the water source eliminated that caused it to grow. This process is called remediation, or mold cleanup. When you call a professional mold-removal company such as MicroZyne Technologies, this is the last step in the process of identifying, analyzing, and finally eliminating your mold problem.

Here is what you can expect when it comes time to finally rid your home of the mold:

1. Prepare to leave your home (both you and your pets) for up to two days. The first day, the workers will seal off all rooms except the one(s) containing the mold, rid the house of dust, and kill the organism with chemicals. The next day, they will encapsulate the spores. Both processes require you to be out of the house.

2. Take photographs and videos of the affected areas of your house before the remediation begins. These will serve as important documents in case of an insurance claim.

3. Do NOT remove any items from the affected room (except clothing). Even objects that do not exhibit mold will have spores on them from the air. Leave them in the room to be cleaned.

4. Wash any clothing in the room with hot water, then seal them in plastic bags to prevent re-contamination.

5. Expect your mold removal technicians to show up full body suits, including respirators and goggles. This does not mean your mold is toxic, but is standard procedure for professionals dealing with large quantities of these allergens at close range.

6. Provide clear access to and from the affected areas. The crew will need to lay down plastic sheeting and run hoses into the house.
