What Do Mold Removal Products Do for Cottage Grove Homes?
Mold removal and remediation are aided by surface treatment solutions used in Cottage Grove homes
Mold inspections help determine the extent of the damage and the affected materials. Some mold damage in area homes can be treated with antimicrobial/sporicidal products when caught early enough.
Inhibiting the Growth of Mold
Antimicrobial products are a staple of mold removal for Cottage Grove homes. Surface treatment solutions are non-invasive and can successfully eradicate mold organisms before the colonies spread too far. Another advantage to using antimicrobial products on surfaces throughout the affected areas of your home is inhibiting mold growth. Its chemical makeup designed to eliminate mold growth can also act as a defense against the seating of new colonies while remediation and water cleanup continues.
More Aggressive Mold Removal
When surface treatment solutions are ineffective and less feasible, more aggressive or abrasive options exist to reach depths beyond the surface of affected hosting materials. Some of the more common of these options chosen by our team include:
- Sanding – Using power sanding equipment or elbow grease, we can remove the top layer of affected material where mold is present to reach beyond this finished surface for more effective mold remediation.
- Media Blasting – Certain media under pressurized air or water can blast away growth on the surface of materials and reach into the substrate to eradicate the entire infestation of specific affected materials. Often pressurized air is more desirable to limit the increase of moisture in the environment.
- Controlled Demolition – When all else fails, and the damage is worse than remediation can help, our general contractor license grants us to complete controlled demolition and necessary repairs.
It is often the first choice of our responding remediation professionals to treat active mold colonies with antimicrobial and biocide products. There is no guarantee that these initial options for eliminating organisms will be effective, so more aggressive measures are often necessary for certain areas more deeply and completely impacted by the infestation.
