How To Ensure That Mold Is Really Gone

When your home in Campo Verde, AZ floods, your primary concern is probably getting rid of all the excess water and drying it out. While it's certainly important to do this quickly, if black mold patches have formed, the remediation problem is not complete until the mold itself is removed. Here is a brief overview of the steps mold remediation specialists use to ensure that the entire restoration process is finished.

1. Water Extraction

Excess moisture is the main culprit in mold growth. No matter the size of the flood, the excess water will need to be removed to stop the growth of more mold. Once the moisture problem is alleviated, new spores don't have a hospitable place to land and grow. This doesn't resolve any fungus issues that already exist, though.

2. Item Removal

All items affected by the flood must be removed and dried. This includes not only personal belongings but any walls, insulation, flooring or ceiling materials that are ruined. If they cannot be salvaged, they are thrown away. If they can be saved, they must be dried and cleaned thoroughly, ensuring that no black mold is present, before being returned to your home.

3. Mold Cleanup

Dry mold is still a problem, and it can continue to affect the air quality of your home if it is left untreated. After the affected portions of your home are dry, technicians thoroughly clean it, removing mold growth from the surfaces and out of any cracks or crevices into which it has managed to snake its way. Only after the fungus is gone is the cleanup process really complete.

Removing excess moisture is important when it comes to getting your home back to normal, but it is only the first step in black mold remediation. Certified specialists are trained to complete the full cleanup process to ensure that once your mold issue is gone, it stays gone.
