  4. During our work, we start by setting up full containment and we place the working area under negative pressure with the use of negative air machines (Air Scrubbers). This ensures that the contaminated area is sealed off completely to prevent cross contamination before commencing the mold removal process. The amount of containment will vary depending on the level of mold and the working area.
  5. When commencing the remediation process, our technicians wear full personal protective equipment (P.P.E.) which includes: full face respiratory protection, full body protective suit, shoe covers and gloves.
  6. Once all of the mold has been completed removed, we use a eco-friendly product to further disinfect the areas. Additionally we use a Hepa vacuum to clean up after ourselves to ensure all particles are picked up. We leave the containments up for an additional 48 hours with air scrubbers to ensure air is cleaned efficiently and all airborne spores are removed before removing the containment.
  7. We identify the source of the mold and the best solution to fix the source.

If Air Quality Testing or Mold Testing is required, we work with the best environmental companies in the industry. Any mold removal company that tests their own work creates a conflict. This is why we only use third party companies. Duct cleaning after mold removal is highly recommended. Although we use containments and negative air machines to remove the mold, there is a great possibility that mold has travelled through your venting system prior to our arrival.
