What goes into mold remediation
You may be wondering what actually goes into a professional mold remediation service. How we safely remove it, drastically reduce mold levels inside your property, and restore your air. The following steps are common procedures we take on many of our projects and will give you an idea on what to expect when you hire ATG Mold.
Anytime building materials are going to be removed or only one area of a property is going to be remediated it is crucial that mold remediation be completed under proper containment .
By setting up proper containment measures it greatly minimizes the risk of anything spreading to other areas of your home. The last thing we want!
When we set our containment systems we also implement important particulate control measures into place. For most projects, we implement negative air system controls which allow us to control pressure differentials of air flow during filtration for better results. We may also use commercial dehumidifiers depending on the project if humidity levels are elevated. These are just some of the measures we take to minimize potential risk and improve overall safety.
Removing & Restoring
Once we have the area(s) of your property ready & contained. We will then safely remove any mold infected or water damaged building materials that cannot be salvaged following NAMRI guidelines. We will work together on salvaging and thoroughly cleaning you belongings to save as much as possible.
Following a leak or flooding event mold often begins to grow on drywall from the base of the floor, a couple feet from the ground where water often settles. Drywall is one of the he most mold prone building materials and is the most common place toxic mold can be found inside buildings.
Following a leak or flooding event mold often begins to grow on drywall from the base of the floor, a couple feet from the ground where water settles.
Over time it will eat its way upwards and throughout your entire walls. So to prevent that we usually start cutting drywall out around 2 feet from the ground and work our way up if necessary. We then will treat and clean the exposed structural area to give your property a fresh start!
This might be the most crucial step in the mold remediation process and cannot be overlooked. However, many mold companies skip this step because it's challenging, time consuming work. Never hire a company who claims they can treat drywall! Essentially, it's like cleaning ink our of paper. Plus, mold is toxic dead or alive so you want any infected drywall safely removed and far away from your property as possible!

We vacuum and clean your place multiple times to physically remove spores that may have spread throughout the area. Thoroughly wiping down everything with antimicrobials and fungicides.
