You Can Expect The Following To Take Place During The Process

Black mold, as well as other types of fungus, is a common problem in many buildings, particularly if you have experienced water damage or high humidity. If you suspect there is a growth in your Orting, WA, building, then you should contact a professional company to have it taken care of as soon as possible. You can expect the following to take place during the process.

1. Inspection
The first thing that the mold remediation company must do is to perform an inspection. This is necessary to locate each instance of growth as well as to determine the extent of the damage. Once this has been completed, they can take steps to remove it from the building.

2. Containment
Before mold cleanup can begin, the area must be contained. Mold spores are not visible to the naked eye and can be easily spread if precautions are not taken. The area that is being cleaned should be blocked off from the rest of the building, and protective suits should be worn over clothing.

3. Cleanup and Removal
Once the area has been contained, the professionals can begin removing the black mold. Antifungal treatments may be used to prevent it from returning. If any furniture or other belongings have been affected, these will be cleaned and deodorized as well.

4. Restoration
In some cases, the mold growth may appear inside of walls and underneath floors and carpets. If this happens, some building materials may need to be torn out and replaced. Walls may need to be repainted as well.
Because black mold can be difficult to remove, it is important that you have the growth addressed as quickly as possible. If you notice discoloration on your walls or a musty odor in the building, do not hesitate to contact a professional. A cleanup and restoration service can safely return your building to its previous state and make any necessary repairs.
