If you have recently had a home inspection where mold was found, Northeast can help to remediate this problem.
Our Mold Remediation Process
Northeast does not perform any mold testing.
A project manager will review your consultants or engineer's scope of work in order to provide you an estimate.
Northeast Environmental's crew sets up a containment around the area of the house with the mold problem. A negative air machine is installed within the containment area to prevent the mold spores from spreading to non mold contaminated areas in the home. Anything that contains mold is removed; sheetrock, carpeting, furniture, etc. All surfaces are vacuumed with a HEPA (high efficiency particulate air) filter vacuum. This vacuum removes and traps the mold spores. All remaining surfaces are wiped down with an anti-fungal solution.
The best treatment is prevention, when possible.
- Moisture control is key.
- Repair any leaky plumbing or other sources of water.
- Keep indoor humidity to 30-60% to decrease mold growth.
- Use exhaust fans in bathrooms and kitchens.
- Mold is not prejudiced; whether your house was built in 1913 or 2013, if you have a moisture problem, you are likely to find mold.
- Keep property clean
- Clean and dry water damage areas within 48 hours
- Dirt and Dust are very condusive to mold growth
- Use dehumidifier in your basement (cool floors can build up moisture)
