The mold restoration process depends on the type of material affected by the mold and the extent of the damage.
Some mold treatments are rather simple in nature because the mold has not caused damage to the surface where it is colonizing. That is not always the case. Advanced cases can often require more complex mold restoration steps. At Peek Mold Control, we serve the Lawrenceville, Georgia area with various mold-related services, including mold inspections, mold remediation, and mold restoration services, for both residential and commercial properties. Mold restoration processes depend on the type of surface that the mold has attached to and the extent of the damage.
- Mold Restoration for Wood- Mold consumes the nutrients on the surface of wood and can move into the wood as a food source, especially when the wood is damp. Mold restoration for wood usually requires the removal and replacement of the wood.
- Mold Restoration for Concrete- It might seem like concrete is impervious to damage, but the fact that it holds moisture and debris makes it good environment for mold. Generally, a thorough scrubbing to remove both the mold and the debris it is feeding on is an effective mold restoration technique.
- Mold Restoration for Insulation- When damaged by mold, most types of insulation should be removed and replaced, taking care to remove any wet insulation so that mold doesn’t return later.
- Mold Restoration for Drywall- Drywall is very porous, so it takes very little effort for mold to invade it. As a result, drywall always needs to be replaced. Even drywall that says it is mold-resistant will need to be removed if it has fallen victim to mold.
