Mold abatement does not have to be expensive. There is truly no magic to remove it. The process of remediating mold on any project is always the following three steps:
· Containment - Toxic Mold should always be contained. Keep the area sealed using plastic and tape. This prevents the mold spores from spreading in the air.
· Mold Removal - Physically remove the mold from the building materials through demolition, sanding, grinding, wire brush, etc.
· Cleaning - Using the right equipment and techniques, physically remove the mold spores from the containment.
The difference between a mold removal company and any other contractor is certified training, knowledge, and experience. Regular contractors, handyman, and do-it-yourselfers' simply lack the training and equipment to successfully complete a mold project. But…that doesn't mean it has to be expensive.
