Mold Remediation Relies on Several Strategies

It is crucial to conduct mold inspections to accurately gauge the scope of the damage and the materials that have been affected. Timely detection is critical, as some mold damage in homes can be treated effectively with antimicrobial or sporicidal products.

Stopping the Movement of Mold

Antimicrobial products help eliminate mold growth and are commonly used for mold removal in Marysville homes. They are non-invasive and inhibit the spread of mold colonies. Additionally, these products defend against forming new colonies during remediation and water cleanup.

Removing Mold with Direct Action

In cases where surface treatment solutions prove insufficient or impractical, our team opts for more aggressive and abrasive options to reach deeper levels of affected materials. These options include some of the most commonly used methods that have proven highly effective.

  • Sanding – To effectively remediate mold, we must remove the top layer of affected material where mold is present. This removal can be achieved through power sanding equipment or elbow grease to reach beyond the finished surface. 
  • Media Blasting – Pressurized air or water in certain media can effectively eliminate growth on material surfaces and eradicate entire infestations in affected materials. Pressurized air is particularly useful in limiting moisture increase in the environment.
  • Controlled Demolition – In a catastrophic situation where remediation cannot help, we have the authority to execute controlled demolition and carry out essential repairs under our general contractor license.

Our remediation professionals always use antimicrobial and biocide products as the first choice to treat active mold colonies. However, we cannot guarantee the effectiveness of these initial options for eliminating organisms in every situation. Therefore, we can recommend more aggressive measures for areas more profoundly and wholly impacted by the infestation.
