Express Emergency Services – Mold Removal and Inspection

Mold Removal and Inspection

 

The mold removal technique you see here is soda blasting. Our remediation specialist is using a compressed air wand to force sodium bicarbonate onto mold infested wood. It is faster than sanding but is less abrasive than sandblasting, which makes it ideal for more delicate surfaces.

You can see that soda blasting provides our specialist more control over the task. After he removes most of the mold, he goes over the support beam again, leaving it clean and looking almost new. It takes only a few seconds, where sanding takes several minutes and often leaves a very rough looking surface.

The only drawback to soda blasting is that it does leave a residue. While the sodium bicarbonate is excellent for removing mold, it does not kill the spores. To prevent the residue from escaping the area we are cleaning, we seal all exits and entrances and then use vacuums with HEPA filters to catch and remove every loose spore mixed in with the soda residue.

If you discover a growth in your home or business, you must deal with it as quickly and effectively as possible. For the latest methods and the best customer service, call Express Emergency today at (561) 513-5977.
