Mold remediation is a process of containing the affected area to prevent cross-contamination, following step-by-step processes that are proven to return the affected environment back to a healthy and safe environment, and then obtaining 3rd party post-remediation test results to guarantee a successful mold remediation was done. If you are considering starting a mold remediation project in your home or business, be sure to consult with a professional first.
Mold Remediation is 3-Step Process
Know that remediation is almost always going to be a 3-Step process. Before mold remediation can begin, a property owner must secure the proper testing first. Do not hesitate to call a local mold tester to jump start your project. Present the findings to the remediation specialists at weDRY Restoration to help facilitate the customization of your complimentary remediation estimate. Once a scope of work is established, using the lab results made available, remediation can commence.
Upon the conclusion of the remediation work, be sure to schedule a post-remediation mold inspection and test. This is the only way to guarantee the mold has been removed and the environment has been returned to a healthy living environment. weDRY Restoration guarantees a successful remediation on every project. That’s exactly what professionals at weDRY in Michigan provide.
Why is Mold Testing Important?
Did you know that there are hundreds of thousands of different types of mold? Did you know that mold exists everywhere? This means that if mold is everywhere, it’s most likely in the air you breathe but you may not know it. Some people have fairly quick reactions to mold such as coughing, sneezing or itchy eyes and this may alert them that there could be a problem.
On the other hand, some people who are exposed to mold over long periods of time may not be symptomatic. They may not experience any immediate negative reactions, but that doesn’t mean that exposure to certain types of mold isn’t a problem. It could lead to issues later in life. So how do you protect yourself and your property? How can you battle something you cannot see? The only way to start a process of safely and effectively treating and removing mold is with the testing of the air quality before and after remediation.
The weDRY Michigan team follows IICRC requirements which include a full range of steps designed to protect you, your property and our crew.
Does Mold Remediation Really Work?
Remediation supports the ability to get fungi back to natural levels. As a consumer, you will want to ensure that remediation is completed by securing post-remediation testing by a 3rd party professional. Only through true remediation practices can mold be treated and removed after a water disaster or issue where moisture was previously consistently present.
We are often asked whether mold will come back after remediation. It is imperative that the source of the mold be addressed prior to all remediation efforts. weDRY Restoration guarantees all remediation projects through non-biased, 3rd party post-remediation testing.
There Are Several Areas of Your Michigan Home Where Mold is a Common Issue
Anywhere water is found is an area where mold is likely to form. Furthermore, an excessive amount of humidity in a house can condense and cause mold, even if you have a system of dehumidification.
Keep in mind, newer homes are not exempt from mold issues. Newer homes tend to be more tightly insulated, making it a more conducive environment for potential mold growth.
Among the more common areas for mold growth are:
- Crawl spaces
- Under sinks
- Under window unit air conditioners
- Wall interiors
The weDRY Mold Remediation Process
Our process is very specific to ensure the health and safety of you & your property. We take the following steps:
- Can help identify the possible source of the mold issue.
- Offer referrals, if needed
- Seal off & contain the affected area
- Remove mold and return the environment back to a healthy state
- Provide guidance to the customer on how to ensure moisture or water does not return
From there, we can help you deal with any questions your insurance company has and help provide proof of the source. What is involved with mold remediation can support the data your insurance company needs.
The mold remediation process is one of the times when mold spores are most likely to be disturbed into the air. This can be a dangerous situation and why experienced professionals wear protective clothing and equipment while performing mold remediation. If you attempt this work yourself, you may not properly use protective equipment. It is why mold must be removed professionally.
Getting Your Property Ready for Mold Remediation
There are several ways to get your property ready for mold remediation:
- Secure mold testing results from a 3rd party licensed professional.
- Fix the water or moisture issue that caused the mold.
- Do not attempt to remove, move or clean any items located in or near the affected area.
- Clear a path for the crew to move easily from your driveway, parking lot, or street to the mold area and back. For instance, remove cars from the driveway and garage.
- Keep any of your pets out of the way—in a room with the door closed ideally.
