In addition, our experts are licensed, trained, experienced, and certified. We guarantee that our methods are safe for both the workers and homeowners. Our team of experts will be well suited with personal protective equipment and adhere strictly to the health and safety regulations while carrying out the remediation process.
Our professional mould remediation process involves the following:
We carry out mould inspections to ensure that it is indeed a case of mould infestation. An inspection also allows us to identify the affected areas and the extent of the damage caused. Then, based on the results obtained from the inspection, we develop a remediation procedure tailored specifically to your infestation problem.
This process involves the containment or isolation of the contaminated area to prevent the tiny airborne mould spores from migrating to the unaffected parts of the infested space. Doing this allows us to restrict the mould spores and contain the infestation. Our experts will also put up containment chambers to isolate the contaminated area.
Since mould spores become airborne when disturbed and become airborne, the air must also be cleaned and contained. Our experts will have negative air machines with high-efficiency particulate air filters (HEPA) running continually throughout the project. This process will remove mould spores, dust, microbial volatile organic compounds (MVOCs), and other airborne debris from the contaminated area.
Eliminating the Source of Moisture or Water
Our expert specialists can use a variety of tactics to prevent mould spores from spreading. We can help you address leaks and water seepage, repair water-damaged areas and ventilate and dehumidify any wet areas in your home.
We also offer a variety of ways to reduce the damp conditions that mould thrives in, from keeping moisture from entering your house through poorly insulated windows and floors to patching and waterproofing any cracks or holes in the walls of your kitchen and bathroom.
Mould Cleaning and Removal
In this step, our experts use cleaning products like antifungal, antimicrobial, and other approved biocide to clean the affected area or surfaces. We can carry out carpet cleaning and equally clean other redeemable pieces of furniture contaminated with mould growth. If there are items beyond restoration, we will seal them up in bags and dispose of them in an approved dumpsite.
Depending on how severe the infestation is, there might be a need to replace the contents and items in the contaminated space. You might need to:
- Install new subfloors, drywall, or wallpaper,
- Repaint the affected area or surface,
- Install new carpets, or
- Carry out reconstruction on the water-damaged surface of the most infested part of the space.
Furthermore, we carry out commercial and industrial professional mould removal. We can also assist you in getting rid of odour caused by the mould infestation and equally deodorise your entire space. Contact us to provide you with a complete mould inspection and treatment strategy.
