When mold has invaded walls and other structures, BMS CAT teams carry out demolition, construction, and reconstruction tasks.
Mold Cleanup Process
Our professional crews follow systematic protocols to ensure that your home or building is fully recovered and restored.
Step One: Examine and Evaluate Mold Damage
Evaluating mold damage is more than just noting fungal growth on walls, floors, ceilings, and cabinets. BMS CAT mold remediation teams utilize advanced tools that locate hidden areas of mold, reveal undetected reservoirs of water and identify surfaces that still contain moisture.
Step Two: Seal Impacted Areas
To help prevent the risk of mold spores migrating to infect adjacent rooms in a house or building, BMS CAT teams seal off the contaminated area with plastic sheeting.
Step Three: Extract and Remove Water
With service industrial-grade wet vacs and moisture extraction equipment, our technicians remove as much water and moisture as possible from walls, ceilings, flooring, carpets, cabinets and furniture.
Step Four: Aggressively Dry Spaces
Powerful fans, air movers and dehumidifiers are placed strategically to dry spaces and surfaces, and to direct humid air outside.
Step Five: Dispose of Damaged Materials
When mold has invaded a house, the surfaces that it has grown on often must be discarded. Porous items usually fall prey to mold infestations—wallboard, ceiling tiles, insulation, carpet, fabric, furniture, clothing and books. We dispose of mold-damaged items and materials that cannot be restored.
Step Six: Restore Heating, Cooling, and Ventilation Components
Mold can access HVAC systems and ductwork. A later step in the mold remediation process is the cleaning of HVAC components. HEPA filters are used to help rid equipment and ductwork of excessive mold spores.
Step Seven: Disinfect Whole Structure
A final step in restoring a space to safe conditions is a thorough disinfecting. This kills stray mold spores, sanitizes surfaces and renders a home or building safe to inhabit once again.
Step Eight: Conduct Repairs & Restoration
Where walls, ceilings, cabinetry and flooring have been removed due to water and mold damage, the last task in the remediation process is to rebuild and restore. BMS CAT repair and restoration crews are expert tradesmen who are mold and water damage restoration professionals. They take pride in making a home or business whole again.
