Mold Removal and Remediation

Mold Removal & Remediation

Mold can be a very big problem in your home or business. It grows quickly, spreads even faster, and can cause huge health problems for you, your family, or your employees. It's important to get professional help FAST to remove mold, because if it spreads to your HVAC system then you've really got problems.

CONSTRUCTEAM's mold removal and remediation technicians can help. We're able to identify, isolate, and remove mold before it can spread. We take all of the proper cautions, follow all procedures, and will make sure to contain the mold before doing anything else. The last thing you want is your brother-in-law Johnny coming over with his saw or his crowbar, popping off a piece of molded trim, and watching all of the mold (and the spores you don't see), fly off and through the air, contaminating the whole room or your entire home.

Our Mold Remediation Process

Identify & Test

We'll identify mold visually where possible, and test the air quality to gather information on the type of mold and the spore counts.

Prevent Spreading

We'll set up IICRC approved containment barriers and seal off vents to prevent the potential spread of mold spores throughout the property.

Tearout Affected

Next we tear out any affected materials (drywall, flooring, i.e.) to prep for rebuilding, and spray an antimicrobial solution.

Rebuild & Restore

Finally, we'll rebuild your property, perform a final cleaning, and conduct another mold test to ensure your home or property is safe!

I Found Mold In My Home Or Business. Now What?

The truth is, “Mold is everywhere!” It lives in and outside of our home or business everyday. Depending on the time of the year, and as weather changes, mold levels can increase or decrease. Many people are very susceptible to the changes in the seasons and it mostly is due to the levels of different molds in the air otherwise referred to as allergies. Mold comes in so many forms with big complicated names like Aspergillus/Penicillium or Stachybotrys. However, when you discover something growing where it shouldn’t that is when you should let the professionals handle it. The good news is, “All of these molds can be contained, removed and disinfected”. The real challenge is, “How far did it travel?” See below for the steps to take in the event you have discovered mold growing.

The 4 Steps To Getting Rid Of Mold In Your Home Or Business

  • 1. Don’t touch it if you find it - The best way to remove (remediate) mold is to let a professional mold removal specialist remove it so the mold does not travel through the air into others areas.
  • 2. Mold testing and protocol - Depending how bad the mold is, an environmental specialist will need to be hired to test the air and take actual samples of the mold off the walls. This environmental test will produce a report from a laboratory that will tell you what the mold is, where it is, how bad it is, and how to remove it. This report comes in the form of what the industry calls a Mold Removal Protocol. This protocol provides proper instructions to follow to during removal.
  • 3. The removal of the mold (Mitigation) - A mold removal specialist will take the protocol from the environmental specialist and follow the removal process in order of sequence. They will use containment (plastic walls) for areas that are affected and turn it into a self-contained (negative-air) chamber using special air cleaning machines inside with hospital grade filters to keep the air clean during removal. This chamber is only to be removed after final testing.
  • 4. Final mold testing - After the mold removal is 100% completed. A final test is required called a “Post Test”. This testing will generate another report to show the reduced mold levels and that the mold was successfully removed. If success is not achieved, additional cleaning will be required to achieve the desired safe levels determined by the Environmental Specialist. When 100% success is achieved, the Environmental Specialist will provide a Clearance letter showing the results and explaining that the home or business is safe to inhabit once again.

However, it is safe to note. This clearance letter must be saved for future documentation. It will be the documented proof required that the mold was mitigated, tested and approved after mitigation and that the home was safe at the time of removal by an environmental specialist.

In the event that you want to sell your home you may have to disclose that the home once had a mold problem. The clearance letter will be necessary to provide to prospective buyers. It is also very important; that whatever caused the mold to grow in the first place was addressed and or repaired promptly before mitigation takes place. If it was not repaired, the same problem could cause the mold to grow once again.
