The mold division of RestorePro Reconstruction aims to improve the indoor air quality of homes and buildings. Mold remediation may involve anything from simple cleaning to materials removal and demolition. The key to good mold remediation is containment. An area with visible mold growth must be contained in order to prevent contamination into other areas of the building. Containment is usually achieved by erecting plastic barriers at doorways, or by creating a chamber with sheet plastic and PVC tubing as a frame. HEPA filtration is used to set containment under negative pressure, preventing the flow of particulate material from the contained area into the rest of the unaffected home or business.
Any drywall, wood or other material that is removed is always bagged before leaving containment to prevent cross-contamination. After demo and initial cleaning, surfaces within the contained area are cleaned with an EPA-registered fungicidal solution and HEPA-vacuumed.
RestorePro Reconstruction performs many crawlspace remediations, especially for real estate sales. A crawlspace remediation may be a simple matter of cleaning a few joists, but very often insulation and vapor barrier removal is necessary. Soda-blasting (pressure blasting with crystallized baking soda) will take care of the worst mold growth in a crawlspace.
