Our Mold Removal Remediation Process
Mold is capable of growing within 48-72 hours after a water leak. If you were not aware of a water leak in your home, the odds of mold being present is fairly high. Mold spreads pollutants and irritants in the air and can make the indoor air quality dangerous for you and your loved ones. Here at Same Day Restoration we are there for you with 24/7 emergency services. If you suspect you might have a mold problem, call a professional, IICRC certified company, to do an inspection right away.
When you call Same Day Restoration after you notice or suspect mold growth in your home or business, the first thing we do is send out one of our mold removal experts to conduct a thorough inspection of your home. This inspection will serve to identify the extent of the mold growth and damage, and when paired with the results of the air quality test will provide us with the information we need to construct an effective removal plan.
An air quality test is one of the most important steps you can take when it comes to identifying the levels of mold growth in your home or business. An industrial hygienist will come to your property and take air samples to determine both the concentration of mold spores in the air as well as identifying the specific types of mold that are present. Understanding the type will dictate the methods of mold removal that we utilize.
Mold can spread through your house or business in a number of hours. It does this by releasing its spores into the airways, allowing the air movement to carry it to new surfaces looking for a suitable environment for further growth. Because of this fact, when dealing with mold removal it’s vitally important to contain the affected areas as to inhibit the mold from spreading throughout your property.
We utilize advanced containment techniques to effectively contain the mold. Our most common techniques include HVAC containment, industrial air filtration, and negative air pressure.
After the mold has been contained, we will shift our focus to removing the building materials that have been damaged by the mold. At Same Day Restoration, our team of licensed mold remediation technicians will thoroughly clean the rest of the affected areas to eliminate any established mold spores.
The mold removal job is essentially complete, but before we start repairing any damaged or removed building materials, we need to make sure the mold has been eradicated. To do this you need to receive another air quality test. This time the industrial hygienist will test both indoor and outdoor air in order to ensure that your home or business is completely safe and not harboring any extra mold.
Same Day Restoration is a licensed general contractor, which means that after your home or business has been cleared of mold, we can restore your property to its original condition, safely and up to code.
Where Does Mold Grow?
For mold to grow, it needs a certain environment to thrive. To simplify it, mold needs 4 specific environmental factors in order to proliferate within the walls of your home or business. These 4 factors include:
- Something to eat – organic materials such as paper, wood, plants, etc.
- Suitable temperature – mold can thrive between 60-80 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Adequate moisture levels – mold spores need moisture to begin growth.
- Oxygen – mold requires an aerobic environment.
As you can see, the environmental requirements for mold growth mostly overlap what we need to live, with the biggest differentiator being the moisture levels. This is why it’s so important to call water damage restoration professionals when your property is affected by water damage.
