The methods of mold removal Seattle are varied but here are some of the most commonly used ones.
Wet vacuums are handy and used most every time in mold remediation because they can absorb and clean up large amounts of water in a short amount of time. They can be used on almost all surfaces including carpets, countertops, floors and along walls. These vacuums though can only be used when a great amount of water is present as they have a tendency to spread mold spores within the air which pose health threats.
Once the vast amount of water is removed most moldy surfaces can be wiped down with disinfecting clothes where much of the mold will be removed. This again should be done by a mold remediation specialist in Seattle who will have the proper equipment to do so. Anything in the home that has a porous surface however will need to be thrown away as it is will harbor alive or dead mold and continue to spread and it can’t be reached to be disinfected.
These are different than wet vacuums and are used in the final stages of mold remediation. HEPA vacuums can only be utilized on already dried (thoroughly) surfaces as they are used to remove and suck up dust particles that may have mold or spores on them. These vacuums are also great at getting into hard to reach places likes cracks and creases. It is not recommended that untrained individuals use HEPA vacuums as the filtration system has to be exact so that dust and pores do not escape.
During this process all big items and small ones as well need to be covered with special plastic sheeting to that dust does not spread and penetrate them as the vacuum is running.
The final stage of mold remediation in Seattle is removing all items that cannot be salvaged that may have been initially missed or has proven to not dry thoroughly.
