Surface Treatment Is a Popular Mold Remediation Method in Raleigh Properties

One of the reasons that mold is so widespread and destructive to many properties is that homeowners do not approach it with the same urgency as other disasters. Without prompt addressing of the problem, organisms spread more completely into hosting materials and cause a greater need for aggressive remediation methods. Early approaches allow options like surface cleaning to be productive in remediating active mold damage.

How Deep Is the Mold Damage?

The first question in resolving mold damage for Raleigh homes and businesses is how widespread and penetrative the mold infestation has become. Hosting materials can be overwhelmed to require replacement after several days or weeks of exposure. A thorough inspection of the impacted surfaces shows where superficial cleaning and sporicidal products can still be effective.

Antimicrobial Products

Surface treatment solutions rely on sporicidal and biocide products in our inventory to destroy mold spores on contact. Infestations are eliminated with antimicrobial solutions, and these same chemicals work as mold inhibitors for nearby services that have yet to show signs of active mold colonization.

Are More Aggressive Remediation Measures Needed?

Surface treatment solutions are not the only option available to our remediation technicians working on the property. There are multiple instances where more aggressive and abrasive cleaning measures are necessary to overcome the full spread and severity of the organism and the hosting material. Some of these tactics include:

  • Sanding
  • Sponge Pressure Cleaning
  • Soda Blasting
  • Controlled Demolition

Our professionals work to introduce the least invasive mold removal tactics when cleaning up mold damage in your home. Surface treatment solutions offer the most direct path to addressing the earliest onset of microbial development, and we have multiple products that can provide this type of remediation.
