Frequently Asked Questions About Removing Mold
Mold removal is complicated. That’s why we start with a mold inspection. We try to make the mold remediation process as simple as possible for you. Here are some frequently asked questions about removing mold:
Are you going to use containment to isolate the treated area?
We are not going to use containment to treat your mold. Mold spores can spread to other parts of your home. Given the right conditions, the spores can form new colonies. Instead of setting up containment around the area of visible mold, we use your building itself as the containment, treating spores throughout your structure.
Why fog the entire house instead of only treating the affected areas?
When mold contamination of any kind happens within a building, mold spores can spread. They are carried on your clothing as well as being present in the air, and in places like your attic. If the entire building is not treated, then spores can remain elsewhere and begin to grow under the right conditions. Mold is allergenic whether dead or alive and the IICRC S520 guidelines state “Physically removing mold growth and spores is the guiding principle for mold remediation.”
Do you fog biocides as part of your process?
We do not fog biocides in your home. Our GM2000 product works as a non-mechanical air scrubber. It is biodegradable, non-toxic and non-corrosive. Biocides can leave a chemical residue in your home and even if a contractor claims they will ‘kill’ the mold, the mold must be eliminated from your home. Mold is allergenic and toxigenic whether dead or alive. IICRC states: “Using antimicrobials during mold remediation is discouraged. Antimicrobials are products applied into or onto a material to “suppress or retard” future mold growth. Treatments may interfere with post-remediation verification and are generally ineffective on porous and semi-porous materials.”
Do I need to have my drywall torn out?
In many cases, it is not necessary to remove drywall from your home, which will eliminate expensive deconstruction and reconstruction. Do not allow anyone to rip out your drywall before a second opinion with one of our Certified Technicians. Unlike biocides or bleach alone, GM6000 is formulated to get to the hyphae, or root system, of mold. Importantly, unlike some other products, GM6000 will not remove the paint from your walls and ceilings. In most cases, you will you will be back in your home the same day.
Can’t I just treat mold with bleach?
Not really. Bleach will kill mold growing on non-porous surfaces like glass, tiles, and countertops. However, bleach cannot completely kill mold growing in porous materials like drywall and wood. Bleach does not penetrate into these porous substances and so only the mold growing above the surface is killed. Our specially formulated GM6000 is able to get to the hyphae, or root system, of the mold growing on porous materials like drywall and wood. If your drywall can be cleaned without expensive deconstruction and reconstruction, we can complete your projects for much less cost and in many cases, you can be back in your home the same day.
