If mold has shown up in the corner of your bathroom or in your kitchen, call for help right away. Hesitating only gives it time to spread further. If you’ve seen the first signs of such infestation, that means there is more hidden inside your walls or in the attic. Our staff is trained to safely and effectively to go into such hiding places and eradicate the problem at its source.

Mold remediation procedures:

First Response Mitigation teams use sophisticated equipment to look for places where these bio-hazards might grow such as in furniture, under floors, or behind woodwork. When some common materials – like wood, drywall, or cardboard – come into contact with moisture, it creates an environment where black mold or mildew can flourish.

We will seek out and find hidden pockets of moisture where mold infestations or other bio-hazards might hide and flourish over a long period of time. The potential danger areas include a number of locations where moisture might creep in after a rain shower. A small pipe leak, even if repaired, can leave behind a little pocket of moisture where mold can take root and grow.

Our remediation teams will clean the affected areas in your home or business and its salvageable content with powerful detergents and sanitizing formulas. You can be sure your premises will be a cleaner and more healthful place than it was before we came.

Step 1: The first inspection

First, we will inspect your property and its content, using sophisticated moisture sensing equipment to find out if the infestation is confined to a small area or has spread. Even furniture and fixtures must be checked. Any unaffected items will be moved and protected during the cleaning process.

After the initial assessment, the First Response team will do a walk through with you, the customer, allowing you to observe first-hand what they have found.  They explain what needs to be done and provide a reasonable bid before proceeding with the clean-up.

Step 2: Salvaging contents and demolition/removal of debris

Contents unaffected by the infestation are moved in the next phase of the process and placed so as not to be at risk as the clean-up crew starts tearing out the affected drywall, insulation, or flooring. Then, the debris is taken out of the premises for safe transportation and disposal (or destruction) in a way that complies with regulatory agencies.

Whether in a residence or a place of business, the First Response team will do what they can to salvage the content. We understand that your family’s possessions or business assets have more than a dollar value. Personal possessions are part of your home life, some of them irreplaceable, so we will try to restore affected furnishings or other items. In a business, most of your property represents not only monetary worth but are a working part of your company’s productivity. Anything salvageable will be restored to use.

Step 3: Sanitizing and Restoration

For the next step, using the latest technology and powerful sanitizing products our professionals at First Response will scour the hazardous infestation away. The structure and contents will be treated with antimicrobials and detergents, cleaning the infestation out of all its hiding places. Then everything in the area is thoroughly sanitized with heavy, regulation-approved products.

Next, the salvageable contents of your place of residence or business that have been affected by the infestation will be cleaned to a quality at least equal to what it was before the problem began. Then, powerful industrial fans and dehumidifiers are brought into the cleaned areas to dry out all excess moisture and inhibit a recurrence of the infestation. Finally, the flooring, insulation, drywall and other areas that had been previously torn out and taken away will be replaced with fresh material.

Step 4: Final Inspections

The last thing our team will do before leaving your premises is conduct a final inspection of the premises to make sure all problem areas have been resolved and the infestation is gone. They will also assist you in getting all the salvaged and restored content moved back into place. Finally, you will be given another walk through so you can see everything that has been done as the entire remediation process is explained and any questions you have can be answered.
