Superior Cleaning & Restoration, a mold remediation Wisconsin company based in Plover, wants to offer advice to people who have found signs of mold in their home or property and want to do the remediation on their own. They point out that while it is indeed possible to get rid of mold without professional help, it actually depends on the type of mold that is present and how much of it must be removed. In general, mold can cause a variety of health problems, but there are more dangerous kinds of mold, such as black mold that can result in severe symptoms and may even be fatal over time. When there is water damage and rapid mold growth, it is really best to call on the professionals to ensure that the damage is evaluated properly and that the appropriate remedy can be followed.

Mold thrives in places that are warm and moist and may cause the biodegradation of materials used as structural elements of homes and other buildings. Once there is mold in a property, it can grow, multiply and spread rapidly in those areas that have high humidity, such as basements, bathrooms, crawl spaces, and other places where water has seeped in. Mold can easily spread because they release spores that can easily become airborne and possibly invade other parts of the home.

It is important to note that there are three most common types of mold, which are: allergenic, toxigenic, and pathogenic. Allergenic mold is particularly dangerous for people who are suffering from asthma and other kinds of allergies. Pathogenic mold is capable of causing infection in the lungs. And toxigenic mold is the most dangerous of all because they produce mycotoxins, which are poisonous to people and can result in severe health problems and may even be fatal if the appropriate treatment is not provided.

Thus, while mold remediation can be a DIY task, there is the danger of mold spores getting into the lungs of the people doing the mold removal. There is also the possibility that some mold may be missed and the mold can grow and spread again, which means the problem has remained.

Superior Cleaning & Restoration follows an eight-step process for mold removal. The first step is for them to send their trained and licensed specialists to the property to conduct a thorough inspection to determine all of the damaged and affected areas. The specialist will identify the kind of mold that is present in the property and then develop a feasible and effective plan for getting rid of it. In cases where the mold growth is extensive and in severe cases, the residents of the property may need to vacate the home temporarily to protect their health before the mold removal procedure can be started.

During the mold remediation process, all of the mold-contaminated areas will be sealed in order to prevent the mold spores from spreading to the other areas that are not contaminated. The various materials that have been contaminated with mold will either be thoroughly cleaned or totally removed from the premises, depending on the damage. They will be using powerful vacuum equipment to get rid of the mold and a filter may be utilized to get rid of any airborne spores. And finally, all of the contaminated materials will be thrown away and will be placed in sealed containers based on approved and certified safety procedures.
