Prompt attention to water damage or visible mold, and immediate mold remediation and clean up, can often keep a minor problem from becoming major. It can also help guard against health issues and property damage.

6 Steps to Mold Remediation
Our step-by-step mold remediation routine is critical to the removal of every spore that blooms with time. From containment to content cleaning, to environment stabilization, you can trust St. Louis Cleaning and Restoration to provide a comprehensive solution to any mold issues.
1. Inspection & Assessment
St. Louis Cleaning and Restoration technicians have the experience and tools to determine the scope of the damage and provide accurate assessments as well as action plans for removal. We begin by consulting with you, your insurance company, and indoor environmental professionals.
Mold assessment must be performed before the remediation process begins. Our goal during the inspection is to:
- Discover where and why excess moisture is entering your property
- Identify the affected areas and measure the amount of mold
- Conduct air monitoring, surface sampling, and assess the results
- Safe and cost-effective ways will be recommended to eliminate the moisture to resolve the mold problem
The results of the assessment and extent of cleanup is determined, we will prepare an estimate for restoring your home or building to a safe environment. Once you approve the remediation plan and estimate, we can begin the work quickly.
2. Containment and Health & Safety
Containment barriers are constructed to prevent the spread of mold spores to unaffected areas of your home or office. If our professionals do not contain mold during the cleanup process, then the mold spores will find new breeding grounds after traveling through air and water. To protect the health of our technicians, they always wear personal protective equipment and full-face respirators.
The affected areas are placed under negative pressurization with HEPA filtration to remove spores that become airborne during the remediation process. Professionals cover all the openings inside your building using plastic sheeting. These openings include corridor entrances, drains, doorways, ducts, air vents, exhaust fans, electrical outlets, shelving, and cabinets.
Many furnishings and other important belongings can be affected by the presence of mold. Contents from affected areas will be sealed and relocated to the St. Louis Cleaning and Restoration facility for cleaning. We can salvage many items and restore them to as close to new as possible.
All articles will be inventoried and recorded. Once it’s time for your items to get cleaned, our cleaning professionals will decide the best method for cleaning each item. Your items can be stored and returned to your home or office when the remediation and restoration are complete.
Our technicians will use accurate tools to detect areas where significant concentrations of moisture may have impacted the structural integrity of your property. Detecting this moisture within certain areas, walls, and flooring can indicate areas where corrosion and mold risks may be present. Knowing where moisture exists in a structure vastly improves our efforts to eliminate mold.
Our technicians will first stabilize the environment to control moisture levels, if necessary. Areas with heavy mold growth will be cleaned, sanded, HEPA vacuumed, or removed, as necessary.
5. Air System
We’ll perform air quality tests and assess samples of the concentration of mold spores in the air and decide whether your home is free and clear of mold. If microbial growth is on a nonporous surface within your air system, our technicians use our proprietary equipment to clean and treat the system with an antimicrobial solution. Our experienced technicians safely remove any mold from the duct system.
The property owner gets to breathe clean, mold-free air because mold was properly removed using a negative air system. We do antimicrobial treatment in the ducts, and safely remove all mold from being stuck in the duct system.
6. Clearance Testing
Our job and responsibility during the final testing of a project are to ensure our clients that their mold remediation job has been completed correctly and thoroughly. A post-remediation assessment will be conducted using visual, procedural, and analytical methods. The clearance testing determines whether your property is free from all mold.
A written clearance report will be given to the client after mold remediation is completed. The report will include the following:
- a description of relevant worksite observations
- the type and location of all mold measurements and samples collected
- all data obtained at the worksite, including temperature, humidity, and moisture readings
- the results of the analytical evaluation of the samples collected
- copies of all photographs the technician took
- a clear statement that the mold remediation project has passed clearance
Your home or office will be ready for restoration once environmental testing has been completed. We make sure to leave your home or office in top condition once the mold removal service is complete.
