Full Mold Removal in West Houston:
Containment in Affected Area(s)
Depending on the amount of mold damage, varying levels of containment will be used to prevent mold spores from spreading to other areas. The containment process includes closing windows and doors to other areas, covering HVAC vents, using polyethylene sheeting to seal the area, and maintaining negative pressure with HEPA-filtered fans.
The musty smell typically disappears once the mold is removed. On some occasions, further deodorization is necessary.
Cleaning & Sanitation of Structure, Fixtures & Contents
During mold removal, affected porous material, such as insulation and ceiling tiles, will need to be removed. Depending on the item and mold severity level, other surfaces may be cleaned carefully using a wet vacuum, damp wipes, or HEPA-vacuum once items have dried.
HEPA Air Filtration and HEPA Vacuuming
High-Efficiency Particulate Air, or HEPA, filtration and vacuuming, is the EPA standard. This equipment allows air and dust to be filtered through, trapping mold in the filter, returning clean air to the home or office.
