Mold contamination and removal continues to be a major news topic in Washington, DC, Virginia and Maryland – especially in Rockville, Germantown, Gaithersburg, Bethesda and the surrounding areas.

Toxic mold can contribute to poor indoor air quality and, in turn, affect human health. Mold can cause severe allergic reactions in sensitive individuals, and also cause infections in persons with compromised and/or underdeveloped immune systems, such as young children, elderly persons, or people being treated for cancer or other ailments. To avoid this, an indoor environmental professional (IEP) should be consulted as soon as possible. We will do a thorough evaluation of your Maryland home or business using the latest technology available. This is included in our Free Mold Inspection.
So, what’s involved with mold cleanup?
Inspection and Evaluation:
A certified mold inspector will do a visual inspection, along with moisture readings, using moisture meters and thermal imaging equipment. If mold sampling is needed to aid in the evaluation, samples can be collected and sent to the laboratory for further analysis. The source of moisture causing the mold growth must also be determined, to ensure that after any remediation is completed, the mold will never return.
Development of a Scope of Work:
The inspector will use his extensive training and experience to collect data and devise a scope of work that includes engineering controls. This prevents the spread of mold spores during the mold remediation process.
Perform Mold Remediation:
- Protective barriers will be put in place, using negative air (HEPA) filtration air cleaning devices in conjunction with polyethylene sheeting. Air duct registers will also be sealed off in the affected area to prevent the spread of mold.
- Visible mold growth will be removed using EPA registered biocides and cleaners, or the mold will be removed at the source (drywall, insulation, carpet, etc.).
- Air duct cleaning and decontamination will be completed to remove any dust that could be harboring mold spores (Air duct cleaning is not always needed, as every situation is different).
- The entire area will be vacuumed using a high efficiency vacuum (HEPA) and cleaned to ensure the removal of residual or settled microscopic mold spores and dust.
- A post-remediation inspection will then be completed to ensure that remediation was successful.
