Cleaning up mold is a tedious and time-consuming process that should always be left to a mold removal specialist. At Great Western Restoration, we have years of experience offering mold removal in Portland . If a flood affected your home, mold removal is one of the most time-critical water damage restoration services you can get, as mold growth can begin 24-48 hours after exposure to excessive moisture. This is why we are happy to offer 24-hour emergency response services. To learn more about the main steps in mold remediation, read on.
After putting on protective clothing, our mold removal team works to contain mold spores so that they don’t spread to other areas of the home. Many times we create negative pressure in the room we are cleaning, which ensures that any mold spores that are stirred up during the cleaning process are blown outdoors. After this we clean any moldy belongings and materials you have, and use a mold-killing solution to prevent mold returning after remediation. Once everything is dry, we vacuum the room with a HEPA-filtered vacuum cleaner. Finally, we dispose of the mold in completely sealed bags.
