Clean & Remove the Mold
Once highly affected porous materials, such as gypsum board, have been removed, any remaining materials like plywood subfloors and Douglas fir framing can then be cleaned. All visible traces of mold will be removed before an antimicrobial or biocide spray is used to clean the surfaces during a wet wipe. You may have heard of “mold removal spray” products; however, these are not known to actually remove mold and only assist in cleaning after removal.
A thorough drying process is required to complete mold remediation. This will be accomplished using air movers and dehumidifiers, as well as moisture meters to provide an accurate reading as to whether the materials are dry.
Mold removal isn’t a job that should be taken lightly, and it requires a great level of care.
