The following information discusses how our experts select the right cleaning options and equipment based on a particular situation.
The Correct Cleaning Options
As part of green cleaning initiative, our mold remediation experts utilize techniques such as wire brushing or sanding for physical removal of mold, or they use dry ice blasting as another method for mold removal.
The benefit of using these green cleaning alternatives is that technicians do not have to worry about the presence of lingering chemicals (such as hydrogen peroxide or bleach) in homes after cleaning is completed. All they have to clean are mold spores and saw dust.
Green cleaning also proves to be beneficial in situations where chemicals cannot be used for cleaning like when people in the house are chemically sensitive.
Our mold cleanup experts utilize green chemicals in situations where people have health issues or when they are sensitive to odors that are released by mold-cleaning chemicals.
Apart from in private homes, mold remediation technicians use these green chemicals in public settings as well as businesses with a high amount of foot traffic since it is not certain who may enter with some type of sensitivity to chemicals.
Use of Correct Cleaning Equipment
Complete eradication of the mold problem is the responsibility of mold cleanup technicians, and as such, they need to ensure that the HVAC system does not become a carrier of mold spores to other uncontaminated parts of your home.
An HVAC system performs the task of replacing dirty air from a room with clean and conditioned air. But if your HVAC system has a mold infestation, then it significantly hampers your home’s indoor air quality.
Mold removal professionals are aware of this fact, and when they arrive at your home for mold remediation work, one of the tasks they perform is to check whether there is a mold problem in the HVAC system.
If a mold problem is found in your HVAC system, then our experts focus on removing the source by using various types of equipment such as rotating duct brushes, negative air vacuums, and compressed air whips.
