Common types of molds
Before embarking on this process, it is important that you understand the most common types of molds that might exist around you. Understanding different types of molds enables you to establish the cause or source of the molds and the best method of getting rid them. They include:
This is a rare species of mold, also known as toxic black mold, commonly associated with poor indoor air quality formed due to fungal growth on water destroyed building surfaces.
Is a type of fungus and is differentiated from other types of molds mainly by its color. Other types of molds appear under shade areas in red, blue, green and black color. In contrast, mildew appears in white color as a very thin and superficial growth made up of small hyphae fungal filaments generated on organic matter such as paper, leather or wood or living plants.
This is hyphomycetes genius mold and asexually reproducing type of filamentous fungi. It is largely considered to be associated with the genus Memnoniella.
Key steps involved
The initial step is learning about the role of moisture in the growth of mold. Assessment of mold growth is more than the visible growth on the walls or other surfaces. Mold growth can be an invisible intruder growing around and behind what is visible. Therefore, it is important to understand the cause of different molds such as moisture or water; then master the moisture, i.e. being aware of the source and how it gets into the home. The sole objective of taking such steps is to enable you to establish the source of moisture and use such a location to locate mold growth.
Prior to embarking on the removal of mold, it is necessary to have documentation of the mold condition with photos, writing and video for the warranty team. Such data will be used in developing an effective remediation plan that will address questions such as when the removal will start and when such work is scheduled to be completed, the party responsible for mold removal, any form of testing required and if there is any need for temporal relocation during the process. Such a document is instrumental in the management of liability that the mold growth might have brought.
It is important to know that mold growth has serious ramifications on the health of people around. Mold spores that fall on a damp or wet surface start to grow and can easily produce irritants, allergens, and other toxic substances that affect the occupant’s health and quality of air. Long-term exposure to mold, especially in home environments, can worsen the homeowners’ pre-existing health conditions.
Mold growth does not necessarily take place in one place, and you need to figure out what you are looking for. Calculating the degree of mold contamination will enable you to know the most appropriate approach to mold removal. The objective of this process is to clean up the mold growth within a certain area and prevent exposure of extensive amounts of mold to the home occupants. At R& E, we apply the New York City Department of Health (NYC DOH) guidelines for the removal of contaminated mold.

Remediation of mold removal involves cleaning the existing mold without exposing yourself and the homeowners to the dangers of the mold and preventing new mold growth by locating the source of water or moisture. Depending on the calculated contaminated area, establish if you are working in a place that is approximate to the size of a whole sheet of drywall (about 30 square feet).
This step involves more than just doing a cleanup. It is important to remember to repair the source of water or moisture that would prevent the new growth of mold. It is also important to isolate the contaminated place by closing the windows and doors, suppressing dust, and removing all the mold-damaged and wet materials, placing them on a plastic bag that is about six mils thick for disposal.
Cleaning up through removing mold does not mean that there is no left dust or dirt. It is therefore important to determine if the cleaning efforts have been successful. This can be verified by ensuring that the moisture issue has been fixed through frequent checks after completion of the remediation process to establish any signs of mold recurrence, ensuring that the homeowners are able to re-occupy the cleaned area without developing any aggravated health issues or symptoms. Depending on the company that has carried out the removal process, there is a need for an additional testing by an environmental testing organization to verify that the mold problem has actually been fixed.
From the above steps, it is clear that mold removal requires the implementation of comprehensive management of moisture strategy. Possible liabilities and health problems can significantly be reduced through the right method of removing mold.
