What the Mold Cleanup Process Looks Like
Our BMS CAT crews follow systematic protocols for remediating your property and making sure it is fully recovered and safe for habitation.
- Assess the Extent of Mold Damage
Accurately assessing the degree of mold infestation and damage requires more than a visual evaluation. Advanced tools such as moisture meters and infrared cameras enable BMS CAT experts to locate hidden pockets of moisture and reservoirs of water (i.e., under cabinets) and materials that are wet below their surfaces.
- Confine Infested Areas
Mold spores can migrate to other areas and establish new colonies, so BMS CAT teams seal off infested rooms or spaces with plastic sheeting until all mold is removed.
- Extract and Remove Water
Industrial-grade shop vacs and moisture extraction equipment are utilized for pulling water from cavities, surfaces, flooring materials and absorbent items such as furniture.
- Dry Surfaces and Spaces
Air movers, dehumidifiers, and powerful fans run around the clock to dry walls, floors, ceilings and cabinets while directing humid air outside.
- Remove Damaged Items
Many items that have gotten moldy must be thrown away. Exceptions are non-porous items like glass that can be cleaned and saved. BMS CAT teams safely remove damaged items such as fabric, furniture, books, clothing, drapes, carpet, insulation, ceiling tiles and wallboard.
- Clean and Sanitize HVAC Equipment
Heating, air conditioning, and ventilation components that are infested with mold may send mold spores to other areas of a property. BMS CAT teams clean and sanitize HVAC equipment and ductwork, employing HEPA filters to trap any remaining mold spores while sealing off unaffected areas.
Disinfecting a home or building where there has been a mold infestation is the last cleanup step in restoring a home to habitable conditions. Disinfecting kills stray mold spores.
- Repairs and Restoration
Repairs and rebuilding may be needed if portions of a structure have been removed due to mold damage. BMS CAT mold and water damage restoration crews are skilled technicians whose task it is to return a home or building to pre-loss conditions.
