Much of moldy surfaces in Irvine, CA after the bulk of the water has been removed can be cleaned and sanitized with a follow-up procedure using dampening wipes. These wipes should only be used on non-porous surfaces. Lightly dampen the wipes with bleach, detergent and hot water and scrub the affected areas well. Immediately after scrubbing these areas follow up by drying the areas with a towel or cloth. You will then want to discard the towel/cloth to an outdoor place in case any mold or mildew has lingered and attached itself to it.
It’s important that you contact a professional mold removal expert in Irvine as soon as possible.
It is best to discard any porous surfaces that have been exposed and affect by mold. Because the pores are tiny, those areas are near impossible to clean thoroughly and microscopic bacteria will continue to grow and multiply in the hard to reach places.
During the final stage of the remediation process a HEPA vacuum is used. Use this only after all the water is removed, surfaces have been disinfected and are all dried completely. This equipment will vacuum any dust and harmful particles that may be still be present in the area. Continue wearing protective gear while completing this process as well.
The final measure to be taken is to remove all materials used and any property being discarded by double bagging them in polyethylene bags. Take care to tie and seal bags with heavy tape so that animals nor humans will be exposed to lingering mold.
