If you are unable to perform mold remediation on your own or if the mold has grown toxic, you will have to think of ways in which you could remediate the mold and get a cleaner Atlanta home again. In such a case, you can only depend upon professionals like Mold Remediation Pros. Here are the things that you should be doing while the mold remediation process is being carried in your house.
- Don’t feel apprehensive or alarmed
The mold remediation professionals who enter your house will be dressed in white suits from head-to-toe and will be wearing goggles, boots and respirators. All this might intimidate you a little. However, you don’t have to feel this way. All this is being done to avoid occupational hazards. Mold can significantly damage the health of the professionals as they are always in constant touch with the same. No matter the degree of toxicity of the mold, they will always be packed the same way. So stop feeling alarmed. They are just performing the usual protocol of their job. You need to be comfortable.
- Provide clear access to the area affected by mold
If you expect that the men in white suits will start working in a designer room and appreciate your choice of furniture, you are wrong. You need to clear the entire room from any kind of carts, furniture etc. It would be better if you could just clear the entire room. Let them enter with their heavy suits on and make sure that they have ample space to move as well. Mold removal companies often send a truck and park it as close to the door as possible. They will need spaces to run hoses and lay plastic sheets as well. Therefore, leave as much space as you can. Just give them the space to work and they will make sure that your house remains clean.
- 2 day schedule
On day one of the mold remediation process, the mold removal company will be focusing solely on using biocides to kill the mold spores completely. These are liquid spray kind of biocides that are approved by the EPA. The EPA does not approve of bleach for killing mold. The biocides will be assaulting and killing the spores while the professionals are gone. One day two, the mold remediation professionals will come back to encapsulate the affected region which looks like a paint. It helps in preventing future mold overgrowths in the house.
