Mold remediation

The problem: "mold growth due to excessive moisture"

The number one reason for the frequent formation of mold is too much moisture in individual rooms. The constantly increasing living comfort is not particularly innocent in this. Because above all by:

  • Washing machines
  • Dryers
  • Saunas
  • Baths

Water consumption increases in every household and more moisture enters the air. This condenses especially on cold surfaces, such as house walls, which makes it easier for mold to form.

The solution: "a suitable removal of the mold".

The first step is, of course, the clarification of the cause and proper planning of the removal of the cause. Trained employees are especially important in professional removal. As a rule, they should be trained in areas such as:

  • Microbiological correlations
  • Building basics
  • Drying techniques
  • Dust-reduced deconstruction
  • Partitioning of remediation areas
  • Fine cleaning

During remediation, the mold-infested materials must be cleaned, if possible, and otherwise removed. Glass, for example, is usually easy to clean, whereas infested plaster or plasterboard usually have to be milled or chipped away. Insulation materials should also be generously replaced in affected areas. In addition, damp building components must be dried or removed. If these components are already infested with mold, only professional removal will help.

Here, the greatest caution is required and only advisable to have the remediation done by professionals. In the case of amateurish removal or treatment, it can quickly come back to the formation of mold.
