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, we break 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, improving air quality by reducing spore counts.
- Removing and discarding of porous materials: Our team will carefully remove and bag drywall, trim, insulation, pressed fiber boards, paneling, etc. that has 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 work has been checked and double checked, containment is removed, and the customer is notified.
