Our Mold Remediation Process
We at Capital City Restorations pride ourselves in the simplicity and efficiency of our mold remediation process. When you choose us for your mold remediation needs, the first thing we do is send one of our certified mold remediation experts to your home or business to both assess the extent of the damage to your building and also to identify the source of moisture causing the mold problem.
After this assessment, on a case by case basis we will help you find an independent, third-party mold testing company which will provide you with a scientific report of the type of mold in your home or business. Upon receiving the mold report, simply contact us and our highly trained customer service technicians will help answer all of your mold remediation questions and concerns.
After we have helped answer your mold remediation questions our first course of action is to ensure that the water or humidity problem causing the mold is eliminated. As mold requires water and/or humidity to grow, eliminating the source of these mold catalysts ensures both that the current mold problem will be stopped, and also that future mold problems will not originate from this same source.
The next step of our mold remediation process is to completely remove all of the mold, and also to dry any water in the water-damaged areas. Our expert mold remediation technicians have access to the leading mold remediation products, which allows them to deal with our customers mold problems on a case-by-case basis. This personalized treatment guarantees that your mold problem will be eliminated, as well as all traces of its presence.
The actual process of removing the mold from your home or business that we use involves covering the affected area from ceiling to floor with polyethylene sheeting with a slit entry and covering flap. We maintain this area by using negative pressure by means of a High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filtered fan unit. We also block all incoming and outgoing air vents connected to the containment area.
After containing the mold problem, we then begin the process of cleaning your building and removing the mold. We remove all moldy porous building materials and double bag the items in 6-mil polyethylene sheeting. Our technicians take extra care in packaging mold contaminated materials before removing them from the containment area to minimize dispersion of mold spores throughout the building during the cleaning process because they know the dangers that mold spores can cause if not carefully contained. If mold spores are not properly contained, they can create mycotoxins, or ‘fungus poisons.’
Once we have finished our mold remediation process, we have a third-party test the area to ensure that all mold is gone, and that the area is fit for living and/or working. After the building receives a clean bill of health, you can rest assured that the building is safe.
Our service coverage area includes the metropolitan regions of VA, MD & District of Columbia.
