Phase I – Discovery and Detection:
The first part of the recommended process is finding the mold. Mold Assessors take environmental samples and perform a visual inspection of the premises. The evaluation can also include a comprehensive biological collection protocol. The Mold Pros sample types can include mold, mold toxins and bacteria.
The inspection process can identify the source of the water problem, which could be a roof leak, a wet basement or leaking plumbing. Ventilation systems (HVAC, bathroom and kitchen exhaust fans) play a key role in maintaining proper relative humidity levels in the home. High humidity levels can encourage indoor mold growth.
Phase II – Pre-Testing:
An independent lab should be used to analyze the samples. The results are certified by a lab. If the lab finds the building to be at a normal fungal ecology, no remediation is required. If the lab analysis revels elevated fungal results, a treatment plan should be developed.
Phase III – Treatment:
When you hire The Mold Pros, technicians come to your home or business and begin The Mold Pros’ remediation process using The Mold Pros’ proprietary formulas. The Mold Pros proprietary process is conducted by professionally trained technicians. Flexible scheduling allows for remediation treatments to be completed during the work day, nights or weekends. Our enzymatic solutions are applied to the surface areas, atomized behind walls and in air ducts to ensure mold contaminations are effectively treated.
Phase IV — Post Testing:
Once the remediation has been completed, post testing is recommended to help ensure the building is at a normal fungal ecology. Post testing it normally occurs 48 to 72 hours after the remediation.
Phase V — Prevention:
Our technicians educate you on our remediation program as well as prevention and maintenance plans. These plans are tailored to your home or business and help prevent future outbreaks. Several actions by you will help keep mold from recurring, including using ventilation fans, keeping the humidity in your home or workplace between 30 and 50 percent and avoiding use of carpeting in areas that get wet, especially in bathrooms.
Our trained technicians also adhere to EPA guidelines for mold remediation.
