Mold assessment, removal, and remediation

Basic mold remediation steps

1.

Mold Assessment
The first stage in mold remediation services is mold assessment. Here, Dry On Time will visit the premises to inspect for mold.

2.

Sampling
In most cases, if visible mold growth is present, sampling is unnecessary. However, if residents are experiencing health problems such as breathing difficulties, sampling may be necessary to identify the particular type of mold.

3.

Containment
Mold spores move in the air and can settle on uncontaminated surfaces while they are being removed. As a result, expert mold remediation involves the isolation of contaminated areas before cleaning or removal.

4.

Disposal
Before Dry On Time continues with the drying and cleaning of your belongings, they will first dispose of beyond repair items. This will likely be necessary for any items such as mattresses, pillows, or drywall that may have absorbed the mold and contaminated water. The type of material on which the mold grows will determine if disposal is required.

5.

Drying and air filtration
Once the moisture source is controlled, it is then necessary for the mold remediation crew to carefully dry the area. Dry On Time may need to use a heavy-duty approach such as wet and dry vacuuming, negative air machine, etc. Additionally, to make sure we capture all airborne mold spores because of the disturbance, we will use a HEPA vacuum and an Air Scrubber. They should be used before, during, and after the remediation process.

6.

Sanitization
Removal of mold-infested materials is often followed by thorough cleaning of all items affected, such as carpets, area rugs, furniture, curtains, floors, walls, etc. This will also include anti-microbial spray and elimination of odors with the use of fogging equipment.

7.

Clearance testing
At the end of the mold remediation project, the client will have the option of getting a clearance test done to confirm that the indoor levels of mold are back to an acceptable range. Dry On Time does not offer its own testing because it is considered a conflict of interest. We guarantee our job and will redo the remediation in case of a positive test.

8.

Repair and Restoration
Dry On Time will help you to move forward and restore your home or business back to its pre-loss condition or better. Depending on the extent of your loss, our restoration services can repair or replace drywalls, cabinets, hardwood floors, tiles, and much more.

9.

Mold prevention
Inspect your home or commercial property for any sign of mold infestation routinely Reduce indoor humidity (to 30-60%) to decrease mold growth.
