Mold is something that should be treated as soon as possible. It not only presents an unpleasant sight but is also dangerous for the occupants of the house. Mold can result in allergic reactions like sneezing and runny nose, respiratory problems like coughing and neurological symptoms like headaches. It produces a musty odor which is indicative of mold growth. Even if mold isn’t visible, the presence of a musty odor is alarming enough to stop you in your tracks!
Most people do not know what to expect during a mold remediation process. Make a few considerations when the process is going on at your house. This is what you should expect:
Locating the Mold
You may have located the mold in your home but probably there’s more to it. Mold usually grows in dark, damp, and undisturbed places. So, the first thing you should expect during a mold remediation process is a thorough inspection of the site. If the entire mold isn’t removed in one go, it may return back even stronger and more widespread. A detailed inspection to locate the mold would ensure that mold has been removed from every possible location.
Preparation of the Area
Mold remediation professionals can’t just jump into the cleaning process. If you are expecting them to come with the cleaning equipment and get going immediately, we suggest that you prepare yourself for a much slower yet more precise and detailed process. The mold remediation professionals will move all your belongings out of the site so that they do not get contaminated with the spores of the mold. The mold produces more spores when it is disturbed.
Moreover, the area will be cordoned off to ensure other parts of the house are not affected. Entryways and vents will be covered with plastic barriers which will be kept intact until 24 hours after the process has been completed.
Preparation of Workers
The workers of the mold remediation team will be fully dressed in protective dressing. They will be covered from head to toe, with appropriate face masks so that no spores are breathed in during the process.
There will be some sort of exhaust fan that pulls the air from inside the room outside. The air in the room is highly contaminated with the spores of the mold and if it is not removed, these spores will produce a new, more intense mold generation. A negative pressure is built so that the air inside is completely cleaned.
Once the process has been completed, you will be advised to leave the area undisturbed for some time. After that, all the belongings can be returned to their respective places. In case you observe mold growth on any belongings, either leave it with bleach for some time or discard it, which is what we suggest.
