What Happens During Mold Removal?

Mold Removal

The mold removal process can seem intimidating and stressful. With Teasdale Fenton Cleaning & Property Restoration, we make it easy and stress-free! If you have mold and don’t know where to start, learn the basics of mold removal here.

Please note: this is not a how-to article, mold removal should be done by a certified professional.  

  • Ventilation and Containment

    The most important step in the mold removal process is setting up the containment and ventilation. Mold is the result of moisture, so drying out the affected area is the first step. In order to make sure the disturbed mold spores don’t spread to another area of the home, the area is contained, and air filtration devices are used.

  • Cleaning and Disinfection

    Step two is to clean and disinfect the location. Infected materials are disposed of, salvageable materials are disinfected, and technicians apply solutions that kill any remaining mold and prevent future mold growth.

  • Find and Fix the Mold Source

    If the source of the mold issue is not discovered, the above efforts will all have been for nothing. Technicians address moisture and humidity issues and help the homeowner make the necessary changes. If the issue is something complicated, most companies will recommend a subcontractor to come in and fix it.

  • Encapsulate the Mold

    Mold that hasn’t been removed from the area will be encapsulated by paint or a similar material. While this may seem like it’s just patching up the underlying issue, as long as the mold source is fixed, encapsulating the mold keeps it from spreading and infecting the surrounding area.

Teasdale Fenton responded to a flooded lower level due to a failed sump pump within 90 minutes of being called on a Friday night. Corey and Zack efficiently cleared what needed to be moved out of the way and then removed the water. They set up fans and a large dehumidifier. The next day a team came out to check on everything and measured for dampness.

We had a pipe burst in our attic over a weekend and called Teasdale- Fenton. They sent someone out same-day to quote us on cleanup from the water leak and sent a team out the following day to remove wet insulation and leave Fans to dry everything out. Before removing the fans they moisture tested the whole area. Very pleased with their prompt and professional service.
