The Specialized Techniques That Our Experts Use During Our Mold Remediation Process In Franklin
Using Dry Ice Pellets Removes Mold Damage In The Attics Of Franklin Area Homes
Delicate glass figurines often have a frosted look to them for accents and other features. The process involved in this often uses sand in a directed stream to wear away the surface of the glass. When homeowners in Franklin find mold growing on the wooden framework of their attic space, they rarely think a similar process to sandblasting might help them protect their home.
Mold damage in your Franklin home can be removed using this technique. We use dry ice pellets, instead, though, of sand. These pellets not only work by bombarding the mold growing in your attic, but also by freezing the mold. Instantly frozen, mold has little chance to send spores out to colonize other areas inside your house.
Dry ice also degrades safely, leaving only dead mold and non-viable spores for us to clean up, along with debris from the surfaces we cleaned. Dry ice, or CO2, resorts to its gaseous state when it returns to room temperature. It leaves no residue on surfaces and does not contaminate the air. The process requires only slight ventilation, so our specialists have a steady supply of O2 to breathe while operating the machinery.
Once completed, we apply a spray-on or brush-on antimicrobial agent that is just as safe as the dry ice pellets we used. The antimicrobial agent we use coats any remaining mold and crushes it as the chemical dries. This also leaves no detectable film or coating, although it lasts for quite a long time to protect your home from reinfestation.
These two methods help remove mold damage and prevent regrowth effectively. However, moisture that invades your home can allow mold colonization to occur elsewhere. Because of this, at every job we do, we start by locating the source of invasive water. Our hand-held infrared imaging cameras reveal changes in temperature that occur wherever water saturates materials. Once known, we seal the areas off so water can no longer intrude.
