Molds are naturally occurring plant growths, but there is a wide range of molds which have been known to be harmful to humans and the environment. Most of the common household molds are contained in damp basements, garages and attics or in wet areas such as bathrooms and kitchens. But molds can grow in many different places and pose threats in various parts of the building. For example, mould can grow on roof tiles and walls, and on the inside of cupboards.
You’ll need to hire a specialist removal company, if you want the work to be done correctly. If you’re not sure how to approach your problem, a general contractor is usually recommended. He will take samples of the mould and its growth and advise you on how best to deal with the problem. If you’re lucky, the removal company may also come with a specialist team who can identify the cause of the problem. However, if the mould has spread throughout your building, you may need to carry out the work yourself.
When deciding who to employ to carry out the work, ask the removal company for references and information. They should also provide you with a sample of what they have removed, so that you can see first-hand what is required. If you’re satisfied that they’re experienced and competent, then go ahead and sign the contract.
The first step in dealing with molds is to remove the mould. This is usually done by either using specialist equipment, or by using chemicals. Chemical removal is more effective and quicker than using equipment and should always be considered first before trying to remove the mould yourself.
The removal companies will usually start by using special cleaners to kill off the mould spores that have collected on the surface. Then the contaminated material will need to be carefully removed, by either vacuum cleaner or wet/dry vacuum.
Surface sterilization is essential, because the spores from the spores may be airborne and could still be in the affected area if they aren’t completely removed. Special cleaning solutions should be used to clean any spills and any areas where the material will be stored.
Once the materials have been removed, the mould should be thoroughly dried and then removed. If the problem is caused by a basement leak, the moisture will need to be eliminated. In this case, specialist professionals can use drywall tape to cover any cracks and depressions in the wall and ceiling.
If there are large amounts of mould in a damp space, it can lead to problems such as condensation and water damage. This is why it’s vital to have your basement properly ventilated at all times and to maintain it so that mold growth is not able to occur.
One of the most important aspects of mould removal is ensuring that the affected area is not allowed to re-occur in the future. It is crucial that you regularly check and clean the area to ensure that there are no traces of spores left behind.
If you’re not sure whether your home needs to be cleaned from top to bottom, hiring a professional removal company is strongly recommended. They will be able to assess the situation and recommend a method for mould removal.
A specialist removal company will use the best possible techniques and equipment to get rid of your mould, saving you time and effort. If you’re unsure, you can always ask your local company for advice.
