Microbial Remediation

Mold is alive, but it is neither a plant nor an animal. Mold is a type of fungus. It is part of a group of living organisms that are very common and serve an important role in the environment. Yet this important organism can cause illness in humans from overexposure and inhalation.

The main steps in mold remediation and abatement are:

  • Contain mold spores by creating a confined space with negative pressure
  • Remove the mold using a variety of cleaners or dry ice blasting procedures
  • Prevent mold returning by treating the affected area to kill all remaining spores
  • Use a HEPA vacuum to clean all surfaces
  • Dispose of the mold
