Multiple Mold Removal Tactics Could Be Used 

There is no single method of effectively removing and remediating active mold colonies. Changes in conditions like the material, location, and environmental factors can play a part in choosing the most efficient option. Often, the choice in removal approaches comes down to three main choices:

  • Surface Cleaning
  • Abrasive Tactics
  • Controlled Demolition

The Advantage of Surface Cleaning

Mold removal in Merrimack homes utilizes the least invasive approaches possible. Surface cleaning is a fast and effective solution for mold in its earliest stages but fails to deliver effective results the longer that mold exposure is a concern. We have several antimicrobial and sporicidal products in our inventory that can eliminate spores on contact. These products can limit future mold infestations where applied.

When Are Aggressive Measures Needed?

Surface cleaning does not always remove the entire problem, however. In some situations, colonies have infested beyond the outermost surface layer. They must get removed using more abrasive measures like sanding for wood framing or media blasting for porous surface materials. Some of the materials put under air or water pressure to achieve this mold eradication can include:

  • Sodium bicarbonate
  • Crushed walnuts
  • Corn cobs
  • Dry ice

Is the Material Beyond Saving?

Removing damaged materials is one of the final and most direct methods of managing mold in a household. Drywall is often compromised to the point of requiring controlled demolition. Removed materials are discarded safely, and the connected elements are thoroughly inspected and protected against colonization with antimicrobial inhibitors.

Mold is an underrated and underappreciated threat to homes and businesses, especially when the organisms can grow and spread over a long period.
