Many people believe that mold damage can be treated by covering the objects with chemicals such as disinfectants, biocides, or cleaners. Unfortunately, these chemical cleaners will not help. Substances such as bleach, though commonly believed to kill mold, simply mask the problem.
The process of mold removal for Loudoun Water Damage Restoration includes doing a visual assessment to locate potential microbial growth. Our experts then contain the microbial growth, followed by extracting it and treating the area to refrain mold colonies reappearing. Mold removal and mold cleanup prevent the spread of mildew by encapsulating materials affected by mold, removing the items, and eliminating water residue and sources of moisture - the source and cause of mold growth - in order to replenish and maintain clean air.
This is carried out through a five-step process including assessment, containment, filtration, mold removal, drying, repair, and testing for mold. Before the last test we will sanitize the area with antimicrobials to prevent the spores from reappearing, eliminating any spores still present. These chemicals are safe for use around humans and the environment.

When Is It Time To Worry?
Mold becomes a problem inside a home or business when there is excessive humidity or moisture for an extended period of time. The problem can originate from sudden water releases, like a broken supply line or large spill that goes untreated, or from a chronic condition, like a leaking roof or a slow plumbing leak. Even high humidity or warm, moist air condensing on cool surfaces can trigger mold problems. It’s always best to have the mold evaluated and removed by a certified professional.
Mold can grow almost anywhere in the home or business if conditions permit. If there is visible mold growth on painted wall surfaces, property owners should be concerned about what may be growing on the opposite side of the same wall. The inside of the walls of a house often differs drastically from the outside and could create a perfect environment for mold. If the wall remains wet for a prolonged period, it’s almost guaranteed that the mold growth on the back side will be worse than on the front.
