Removal is often times best left to the professionals. Without
a proper Mold Inspection and Mold Testing prior to the
start of a Mold Remediation project will often times
spell disaster. Mold Abatement can be complicated,
therefore it is vital to know the extent of the damage
and to establish proper containment before beginning the
Mold Cleanup Process.
Mold Remediation Procedures
We, at Absolutely Spotless, strictly follow the
recommended EPA guidelines for mold remediation.
Our goal is to keep you and your family safe, both
during and after the mold removal process.
Step 1 - Inspection by a Certified Mold Inspector:
step is to have a certified mold inspector perform
a detailed mold inspection of the home which should
include mold testing. This testing will serve several
It will tell you if what you have is truly mold,
how high the levels are, what type of mold it is
and how hazardous it is to you. It will also show
how prevalent the mold is in the air of the home.
This will determine whether or not the duct system
needs to be treated and if the home needs air scrubbers
set up to kill airborne mold spores.
Step 2 - Fix the Problem that Caused the Mold:
The next step, before you can cleanup mold, is
to fix the problem that caused it. Whether it is
a plumbing leak, poor ventilation or flood damage,
this must be corrected first before the mold cleanup
process can begin.
Step 3 - Mold Cleanup and Prevention:
Mold clean up is a complex process best left
to experienced and certified mold remediation professionals.
Proper Personal Protective
Equipment (PPE) must be worn and the proper containment
procedures followed to prevent mold from spreading
to unaffected areas of your home.
If this is not done, a serious risk of cross-contamination
can occur, exacerbating the problem further. Proper
containment consists of sealing off all surrounding
mold free zones of the home through use of a negative
pressure air containment system. This system will
isolate the work area and prevent the mitigation
of contaminants to the unaffected areas of the home.
During a typical mold remediation procedure,
many of the following steps are performed: Remove,
properly bag, transport and dispose of contaminated
materials such as drywall, insulation, carpets and
miscellaneous contents. HEPA Vac all affected work
areas such as beams, walls, floors etc. Then, clean,
disinfect and sanitize all affected areas using
a quaternary ammonium chloride blend disinfectant
After this is done, all contaminated areas need
to be sealed using an antimicrobial fungicidal protective
coating. If testing has determined that a large
count of mold spores are present in the air, it
is recommended that the HVAC System be cleaned and
sanitized with a mold sanitizing agent. In addition,
a commercial air scrubber will be needed to remove
the mold from the air in the home.

removal process, we will be happy to answer them
