3. Contain the Mold Infestation

Before starting any mold cleanup, we secure the affected area with physical containment barriers. We also seal windows and doors and turn off all HVAC equipment. This is done to ensure that airborne spores don’t continue to spread throughout your property.

4. Intense Air Filtration

Our teams set up state-of-the-art equipment designed to remove mold spores from the air. This phase of mold remediation takes at least three days.

Our air scrubbers, dehumidifiers and HEPA vacuum systems make sure that no spores contaminate the remaining remediation process. Read more about our equipment by clicking here.
