Mold removal is the term for the clean-up and removal of various types of mold, particularly the toxic types, from an enclosed environment, such as a home or an office. Often times homeowners will see a small area of mold and believe that they can easily clean it away on their own. However in many cases what you see on the outside of a piece of drywall can be an indicator that there is a larger problem lurking underneath. If the mold is widespread hiring a certified professional, with the right equipment and training, is the only way to be sure that you can accomplish your goal of removing the mold, without spreading it to other areas of the home or office without unnecessary risk to yourself or your loved ones. It is very important to be properly prepared and protected before starting to remove any of the serious types of mold.
Mold remediation is not easy work and once an area has been identified as a toxic mold problem, there are a number of steps that must be taken to not only remove the mold, but to prevent it from reappearing. You, or the professional licensed mold remediation Houston Tx expert that you hire, will need to change the conditions that were the cause of the mold growth and then handle the mold clean up.
Mold growth is caused by unusual moisture levels within the area where the it is growing. The first step in mold removal is resolving what is causing the moisture which is allowing the mold to thrive because it can begin to grow within 24 – 48 hours of moisture building up in an area. It is important to remove whatever is causing the moisture, or to control and decrease the humidity with the use of dehumidifiers or increased air ventilation. There is no point in tackling mold remediation if the initial causes are not also properly dealt with such as proper water restoration. It is of the utmost importance that anyone working on the clean-up site is properly protected. Mold can cause many types of health issues, which is why proper mold removal is so important. When our trained technicians perform the clean up they have all exposed areas of their skin covered and they wear a full face mask with the proper air filters. Anything that can’t be cleaned, that becomes contaminated by the mold during clean-up is properly removed from the area to prevent contamination of other areas of the property.

We have a number of different methods that can be used to remove mold from contaminated areas. Before beginning any mold removal Houston work, we seal off and isolate the affected areas. Air scrubbers are installed to prevent the unnecessary spread of mold spores which can easily travel through your home or office if not properly contained.
Mold releases spores when it is disturbed, which is why protective measures are so important during the remediation process. Depending upon the situation we employ a variety of techniques such as encapsulation, application of an anti-microbial treatment, fogging, sanding and other methods. We have all of the necessary equipment from wet vacuums, to thermal imaging cameras to moisture meters to HEPA vacuums as well as the proper chemicals and disbursement equipment to treat your problem areas.
Depending upon the size of the affected area, mold removal can take anywhere from just a few hours to several days. Some remediation requires the removal of affected items, such as drywall or possibly even cabinets. All areas are thoroughly dried before we remove any protective sealing from an area that has been cleaned. This helps to stop mold particles from re-entering the area and starting to grow all over again while it is still damp. Our air scrubbers are capable of capturing virtually every removable airborne particle and we may run them for 24 to 48 hours after treatment of the affected areas and removal of contaminated items and our team is highly trained in how to use all of the proper equipment.
