The Commercial Mold Removal Process

Mold Removal in Buildings

To remove mold, Bluestone utilizes methods outlined in the Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Mold Remediation, (IICRC S520, Second Edition, 2008).  A typical Bluestone mold removal project will involve the following steps:

  • Prior to doing any mold removal work, Bluestone workers isolate the work area from the occupied areas of the building.
  • A H.E.P.A.-filtered negative air machine is utilized to establish a negative air environment in the work area in order to prevent airborne mold spores from migrating from the work area.
  • Mold remediation workers then put on don protective suits and respiratory protection, and enter work area.
  • When abating mold-contaminated sheetrock, drywall, or other porous, non-structural elements, we carefully remove the building materials, wrap them in plastic, place them into bags, and immediately remove those materials from the building.
  • When remediating contaminated structural members or other building materials that cannot be removed (e.g. studs, wooden frame work, etc.), Bluestone workers disinfect those surfaces with a biocide solution and then clean the surfaces by scraping, sanding or wire brushing. 

An anti-fungal encapsulant is then applied to the remaining surfaces.  The encapsulant is an EPA-registered antimicrobial coating designed to kill residual mold and prevent future mold growth.
