Homeowners who are unaware of potentially dangerous mold growth in their home may find they have allergies and other respiratory problems. One of the worst types of mold to have in a home is known as black mold. This type of mold often occurs from a sewage backup in a basement. Most mold in a home is found in areas where high moisture is present. This includes a basement and crawlspace. If any mold is present in a home, then a local mold removal Wildomar specialist will takes steps to remove it.
A mold removal Wildomar specialist will need to assess a home before taking any further steps. This is task that involves checking areas in a home to see if mold is present. The most common tool to check a home for mold is a moisture meter. A moisture meter can check for high moisture levels under the floor and inside interior walls. Many times moisture is present in areas a homeowners is not able access. The specialist will also visually check areas of a home to signs of mold. A camera can also be used to see the inside of a wall.
All areas in a home where mold has been found will need to be closed off to prevent mold spores from spreading. This is the first step of the mold removal Wildomar process. The specialist will cover all the vents with plastic. A doorway, window and any gaps will also be covered. The goal is to contain spores to a confined area so they can easily be removed. This process will be done one room at a time until all areas of the home are free of mold.
A mold removal Wildomar specialist will use HEPA filters to remove the spores and particulate matter from each affected area. The specialist will also wear goggles and an air filter mask when any areas are being cleaned. HEPA filters are commonly found in HVAC systems and many types of vacuums found in residential homes. These filters are designed to provide the best air quality when used with a vacuum.
The removal of mold will begin when once all the preparations are complete. The process will involve scraping and scrubbing wall. If the mold is too invasive, then drywall and other material is removed. A mold removal Wildomar specialist will put all material in sealed trash bags. The specialist will then spray a disinfectant to kill any bacteria that may still be present. A final examination is done of the home when the cleaning is complete. This ensures no further areas of moisture are present in the home.
