Mold Remediation & Removal
Mold spores are literally everywhere in our environment; both indoor and outdoor! However, when mold is visible or if the mold spore concentration is higher inside your home versus outside your home, you may be experiencing a mold problem!
Some mold problems can be small enough to be fixed by the homeowner. In those instances, we pride ourselves in informing the homeowner of such and saving our customers hundreds of dollars. At times when the mold problem exceeds the homeowner’s capabilities, such as with black mold removal, XMAN Inc. is the Reading mold removal company of choice for your mold removal, remediation, abatement, mitigation, or mold sampling needs. Our Reading mold specialists will walk you through the mold remediation process and answer all of your questions before and after a job is completed.
Professional mold removal/remediation is a careful, step-by-step process involving the use of specialized equipment and cleaning agents. There are many details involved in properly removing mold. At XMAN, our mold treatment professional breaks down the overall process into five general steps:
- Setting up Containment: We first contain the work area to prevent cross-contamination of mold spores to non-affected areas of the building.
- Air Scrubbing (negative air pressure): We will then clean the contaminated air by using industrial-strength air scrubbing machines. These machines use HEPA filters, which are designed to capture 99.97% of all airborne and microscopic mold spores while blowing fresh air into or out of the room, reducing spore counts.
- Removing and discarding porous materials: Our mold cleanup team will carefully remove and bag drywall, trim, insulation, pressed fiberboards, paneling, etc. that have been contaminated with microbial growth bags are wiped and double bagged before being removed from the contaminated area.
- HEPA vacuuming and treating of semi-porous & non-porous materials: We then vacuum the contaminated area with a HEPA vacuum that uses HEPA filters to capture mold spores and prevents them from going airborne again. We then treat with a microbial disinfect to kill and eliminate any spores not picked up by the filters.
- Cleaning up of work area: This final step involves HEPA vacuuming and performing an antimicrobial wipe-down on all surfaces where mold spores may have settled within the work area, including the poly sheeting used to contain the work area. Once the quality of the mold cleanup work has been checked and double-checked, containment is removed, and the customer is notified.

Your Reading PA basement and attic can possess the perfect conditions for mold growth and continuous development. Basements and attics both are some of the most common areas for developing mold development in Reading PA. Excess moisture is one of the main causes of fungal activity – usually from high humidity or water leakage. Once mold takes hold in your basement or attic, it can spread quickly due to conducive conditions.

Once your basement and attic are clean, we’ll make recommendations for preventing recurring mold.
