STAR MOLD SERVICES
Having a plan of action when a mold problem arises can make all the difference when it comes to minimizing damage and the effects on your family’s health.
WHAT IS MOLD?
First, it’s important to understand what mold is not. It’s not something that can be completely removed from your living space because it’s part of nature. Mold is present everywhere, both indoors and outdoors, and can enter your home in many ways: through doors, windows, HVAC systems-even on your pet or your clothing. Once these microscopic spores are exposed to moisture, they thrive and can grow into a real problem in a few short days. You may start to notice a strong, musty odor, and that’s the time to act. Before mold remediation can begin, you need to find and repair the water source of the mold, otherwise, it could return. You can help control the growth of mold indoors by keeping the humidity in the 30%-50% range.

IDENTIFY AND REMOVE
We identify any mold affected areas in your home or business and create a detailed decontamination plan. We contain the affected areas. We then create negative air pressure and a HEPA filter exhaust to the exterior to further avoid cross-contamination. COIT follows industry recognized procedures to safely remove all mold and mold contaminated surfaces. If furniture or other personal belongings have been affected, we may inventory and pack-out those items for off-site cleaning and decontamination.
The next step is to ensure the source of the mold is removed. Mold grows in dark areas where too much moisture is present. Technicians create a detailed drying plan to safely reduce moisture to their predetermined levels. We’ll use dehumidifiers and air movers to continue the drying process until target Equilibrium Moisture Content (EMC) has been reached.
After the space is dry, technicians use a HEPA vacuum on all surfaces. HEPA vacuums utilize extremely fine filters which can remove even tiny particulates. If necessary, we’ll conduct a complete cleaning and sanitization of the air duct systems. We use sanitizers, disinfectants and anti-microbial products to remove any possibility of residual mold. A final vacuuming of all affected surfaces is done to complete the process.
After the mold removal, decontamination and cleaning processes are complete and we are ready to restore your home or business to pre-loss conditions. We’ll put back any flooring surfaces, complete painting where necessary and reinstall your furniture.
