What is Mold Remediation?
Mold Remediation is the process of controlling and reducing both air and surface borne mold spores to a level that is equivalent to or less than the natural exterior environment.
Even those following “standard” IICRC S-520 procedures of containment, negative air scrubbing, HEPA vacuuming, cleaning, a second HEPA vacuuming (HEPA > Cleaning > HEPA is called the “HEPA Sandwich”) don’t necessarily achieve results that are both efficient and predictable.
OnGuard Pros employ a cleaning system and neutralization that is second to none in regard to both mold stain removal and soil load removal (cleaning mold from the surface).
Within minutes, technicians can begin extracting the wet foam from the surface which, while assisting the speed of remediation, is used primarily for the purpose of removing all of the contamination from the surface. Think of it this way, when wiping/scrubbing is used to remove the mold, at least in part, it is also pressed back into the surface (called “redeposition”). In contrast, wet extraction physically removes the entire soil load avoiding redeposition altogether. This is the only sensible way to guarantee predictable results.
