Mold Remediation

Mold is a natural part of our ecosystem; it is in the air and plays a crucial role in breaking down materials in the environment. However, too much mold can wreak havoc on your home, furnishings, and health. There are many types of molds, and too much can cause chronic health problems such as respiratory issues, skin irritations, rashes, coughing, eye irritations, fatigue, infections, and asthma attacks. Striking a balance is critical.

Mold spores need moisture, nutrients, and a suitable place to grow. If your house has been affected by flooding, leaky pipes, poor ventilation in the attic, kitchen, bathrooms, and laundry rooms, or even warm, humid air, you may be susceptible to mold growth. In addition to water damage, humidifier use, overwatering of house plants, or small liquid spills can encourage mold growth.

Mold Removal Protocol

Assess the Damage

If you suspect mold, it’s best to call in a specialist to gauge your exposure and need for remediation. Mold can be present in green, black, white, or other colored spots, or it can be invisible to the naked eye. If you see water damage, signs of mold growing, or detect a musty smell, you should schedule a mold inspection.

Black mold is incredibly damaging, and you need to have it removed before it becomes a bigger problem. Mold will literally eat at your house and furnishings if you don’t control it.

TCB’s expert mold inspectors are trained to spot mold problems, but we also use moisture meters to check the moisture levels present in walls, ceilings, floors, and cabinetry. We will then discuss your exposure to mold and develop a comprehensive plan to remediate the mold and restore your space to healthy levels.

Extract and Dry

Removing the moisture and its source is our number one priority. The first thing is to check for water leaks, excess humidity, or other problem areas. Then, we need to remove the moisture.

This can be done through extraction and dehumidification tools at our disposal. This includes cleaning of all horizontal and vertical surfaces within the work area.

We aim to stop mold in your home and prevent its return.

Seal off Contaminated Areas

Tiny mold particles can travel very quickly to other areas of your house if left untreated. During remediation, all affected areas are sealed with polyethylene containments. This limits the damage to minimal square feet, protects uncontaminated surfaces, and keeps occupants from breathing the mold displaced during the cleaning process.

Remove Affected Materials

Mold can penetrate walls and building materials. Unfortunately, cleaning and decontamination are not always enough. In some cases, drywall or particleboard must be removed and replaced. If the mold has gone deep into the walls, wood studs must be dried, sanded, and treated with an anti-microbial solution.

Remediation may sound overwhelming, but don’t stress! TCB EnviroCorp is also a licensed contractor with the capacity to get your home back to a healthy living environment for you and your family.

These HEPA filtration treatments also pull molds right out of the air before they have a chance to settle on surfaces. This treatment removes latent mold particles as small as 0.3 microns with 99.7% efficiency.
