Mold removal (also known as mold remediation), is the process of cleaning mold by removing mold and treating surfaces and materials that have been contaminated by mold or mildew. The methods used for removing mold will vary, depending on the type of mold in the house and the effects of mold on the surface or material.
To ensure you are completely removing mold in your home, a customized mold inspection and mold cleanup process will be followed to properly remove and treat the contaminated areas. Mold testing options include air-o-cell tests and swab samples to identify the types and concentrations of mold present in an environment. Once the source and types of mold are identified, a mold removal plan will be developed and executed, including containment of the work area to control and limit the spread of mold in the house or other contaminants into surrounding areas of the home.
AdvantaClean specializes in removing mold, and their mold specialists use HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) vacuums for final mold removal after affected areas have been thoroughly dried and contaminated materials have been removed. HEPA vacuums have specialized filters that capture tiny mold particles that would typically pass right through a normal vacuum filter. HEPA vacuums are also used for the cleanup of dust that may have settled on surfaces outside of the mold remediation area.
