How long does mold remediation take?
Updated: Jan 20
If you’ve discovered mold in your home you’ll want to have it professionally remediated as soon as possible. This can mean making arrangements to stay somewhere else while the mold is removed. Most people have no clue how long mold remediation takes. Unless, of course, you’re unlucky enough to have been through the process once or twice before.
The answer to the question, “How long does mold remediation take?” depends on the methods used. Today we’ll take a look at what mold remediation methods professionals typically use, how long it takes to get rid of mold completely, and how My Pure Environment has the fastest mold remediation method on the market.
How long do traditional mold remediation methods take?
Traditional mold remediation methods typically take around seven days, depending on the scope and severity of the problem. However, this doesn’t mean that you’ll be back to normal life within a week. Remediation is only the beginning.
Most mold removal companies will simply remove any fibrous materials, like drywall or carpet, infested with mold. Any structural elements that can’t be removed will need to be treated with a chemical compound to kill the mold, then sealed to prevent the mold from re-growing.
Once the mold removal is complete, you’ll be left with the task of figuring out how to repair all the damage done during remediation. Essentially, with traditional methods you’ll not only be paying for the mold removal, you’ll also have to shell out for any repairs needed as a result of the mold remediation process.
This can sometimes take months or even years depending on whether you can find a reputable contractor in your area. Oftentimes, the good contractors will be booked well in advance, meaning the first time a crew sets foot on your property might be months after the mold remediation.
How is My Pure Environment’s mold remediation faster?
We use Dry Fog Technology to completely remove any mold on surfaces or in the air. Our powerful chemical treatment is safe and effective. We use specialized equipment to disburse the treatment into the air in fine droplets, like a mist. These droplets kill mold spores on contact.
The major advantage of our remediation method is that it’s incredibly fast. We can completely rid your home of mold in as little as four hours. And, best of all, there’s no demolition. When we’re done, you’re free to return to your home and rest easy knowing that you’re protected from the harmful effects of mold.
It’s also worth noting that traditional mold remediation methods only remove materials that have visible mold growth. There’s no guarantee that there isn’t mold in its earlier stages of growth, elsewhere in your home. With My Pure Environment, we treat your entire home with our powerful sterilant. We guarantee that your home will be mold free for 12 months. If the mold issue we treated comes back within a year, we’ll fix the problem no questions asked.
