The process of mold removal in a residential home includes a diagnosis of the problem and cleaning an affected area. Mold present in a home can cause allergies and other respiratory problems. Most mold is found in areas that are unseen or hard to access. These will include damp areas in a basement or even in any type of crawlspace. A homeowner will typically require a mold inspection Wildomar specialist who can take care of this problem.
Homeowner who seek the help of mold inspection Wildomar specialist will receive a free estimate for the cost of remediation. Most specialists will ask a few questions and discuss with a homeowner the many ways mold may be detected in a home. Many times a homeowner may discover a mildew smell in their basement or crawlspace. Mold removal companies will discuss the process of remediation and any type of testing that may be necessary.
The equipment being used by mold inspection Wildomar specialists will be able to detect mold in a home. They will use a moisture meter and taking a sample of the air. A sample of the air is obtained from inside a house and outside a house. This is done to compare the concentrations to find out the amount of mold present in a home. If an air test is not done, then a visual inspection and moisture detection is performed.
The inspection of homes by mold inspection Wildomar specialists is required to identify the sources of moisture that have lead to mold growth. This inspection will often identify areas where water may have entered the home. Water can seep in through cracks in a basement or from the backup of a drain and leaks in a water pipe. Specialists will use moisture detection equipment to determine if any moisture is in hidden areas. Common places for water to be found will include inside walls, under carpeting, and even a tile floor.
The preparation of a home by mold inspection Wildomar specialist involves setting up barriers in each room that will contain mold spores. This is needed to prevent the spores from spreading to other areas. All the vents for a HVAC system are also sealed. Specialists will then set up a negative air unit that will use a HEPA air filter.
All drywall and materials in a room are removed if they cannot be cleaned. Surfaces with mold will be scrubbed or scraped while a vacuum is running to contain the mold spores. A second test is then done after the removal process is complete to ensure the home is free of any contamination.
