The Timeline for Commercial Mold Removal

If your company experiences a mold outbreak in Waynesville, NC you are likely to have many questions. More than likely, you will be concerned about how long a professional mold removal will take, and if your company's operations will be disrupted. The answer is it depends, but in general, you can expect the cleanup and restoration to take between three to seven days. The size of the outbreak, the complexities of your facility and other factors will determine this. After a mold mitigation team steps onto your property, you will start to get a better sense of where you stand.

The First Phase
The work begins with an inspection and an assessment of your property, which should take a couple of hours. Once this is completed, the crew manager has a better of sense of several important items:

  • How extensive the outbreak is
  • If black mold or another variety is present
  • If the mold has penetrated the HVAC system
  • How much damage has occurred

Before mold removal can begin, time might be spent on stopping a water leak or removing water damage. From there, mold containment measures will be taken to limit the spread of microscopic mold spores. At this point, the lead technician will give you a solid estimate on the time frame to full cleanup and restoration.

The Final Push
This will probably happen in day two or three. At this time, an emphasis on removing mold growth and mold-infested materials will take place. Workers use EPA approved anti-fungal and antimicrobial cleaners to kill mold and to keep it from returning. They may have to remove porous materials that are stained with the fungi. The final stages include cleaning of contents such as furniture, carpeting and personal belongings. Any structural damage will also be repaired at this point. While mold removal will take some time, you can feel confident that professionals will work quickly and try to minimize disruptions to your company.
