Buford Black Mold Removal Begins with Effective Containment
Professional mold containment is a crucial aspect of mold remediation that requires specialized equipment and techniques to ensure the safety and protection of the occupants. Mold contamination can be a severe issue, which can cause health problems and significant structural damage if not handled correctly. That's why AdvantaClean of Norcross and Buford experts provide effective measures to ensure that mold is safely and effectively removed from a building.
The process of containment and, ultimately, black mold removal in Buford homes involves several steps, beginning with isolating the contaminated area. We seal the affected space and create a negative air pressure environment using air scrubbers with HEPA filters. This step occurs to prevent mold spores from escaping into other building areas.
Installing Containment Barriers
Our AdvantaClean of Norcross and Buford team installs physical barriers in the work area. This installation is most typically done with the use of heavy plastic or polypropylene sheeting. When creating this physical barrier, the main goal is to completely isolate the work area from adjacent, non-affected areas. For example, if mold is present in one room of your home and the neighboring areas have not been affected, we must isolate the room. Depending on the layout:
We could completely seal the doorway with plastic
All HVAC components or shared airways between other rooms would be covered in plastic
All electrical outlets and light fixtures could be covered
The room is kept under negative pressure when possible
Staging areas are established as clean transfer rooms to eliminate cross-contamination concerns
Black Mold Removal
Next, the mold is physically removed from the affected area using specialized equipment such as HEPA-filtered dry and wet vacuums. All contaminated materials, including drywall, carpeting, and insulation, are carefully removed and bagged for disposal. Because there are multiple approaches to remediation, our experienced crew works with you and your property to determine the best approach relative to the structure's current damage, affected materials, and salvageability.
After removing the mold, the impacted space gets cleaned and disinfected with fungicides, sporicides and approved cleaning products. The entire area is then dried using dehumidifiers and fans to prevent mold from returning. This step is vital because mold thrives in moist environments, and any residual moisture can lead to its reoccurrence. Our personalized remediation and cleaning process is unique to your home or business.
