Mold Remediation and Mold Removal

molds-remediation

mold-atticAttics can be perfect places for mold to hide. In the Northeast, the combination of heat and the lack of ventilation causes moist air to be trapped, allowing mold spores to plant themselves along attic rafters and framing. Air conditioning that cools home interiors has little effect on attic temperature, creating sauna-like attic environments that are perfect for incubating mold. Seitz Bros. approaches attic mold remediation the same way we do all mold contamination. We offer a complete solution that contains the attic space from living spaces during our process, insuring that we do not cross contaminate your inhabitable space. Customers and environmentalists rave over the results of our work -clean, sealed, and maintenance-free attics that can be used as mold and mildew-free storage space.

Seitz Bros. has developed a process for effective and safe mold removal from attics. Our process complies with EPA, New York City Health Department and IICRC Standards and Guidelines.

    1. Set up negative air pressurization inside the attic, preventing cross contamination.
    2. HEPA vacuum all surfaces, including joist, truss and rafter framing.
    3. Wipe all surfaces, including ductwork, framing and conduits.
    4. Sand, scrape or wire brush the first layer of affected wood framing. Such agitation techniques will ensure complete source removal of mold spores and their root system from the contaminated wood framing.
    5. Wipe all surfaces a second time.
    6. Apply a clear anti-microbial wood coating to the newly cleaned wood surfaces.
    7. Apply a white encapsulant paint to trusses and sheeting.

Seitz Bros. Basement Mold Remediation and Mold Removal

mold-basementBasements are perfect places for mold, especially when the basement is partially or fully underground. In the Northeast, the combination of soil temperature, soil water saturation and the lack of exterior drainage creates opportunities for mold spores to plant themselves along damp basement walls and floors.

Surface cleaning of these areas with common household cleaners is rarely sufficient to limit mold’s pesky growth, leaving many basements with unpleasant musky odors that are difficult to eliminate.

Seitz Bros. approaches basement mold remediation the same way we do all mold infestations. We offer a complete solution that seals basements from current mold infestation. Customers rave over the results of our work – clean, sealed, and maintenance-free basements that can be used as mold and mildew free storage space, family rooms and bedrooms. .

Seitz Bros. Crawlspace Mold Remediation and Mold Removal

mold-crawlspaceVisible surface mold growth is common in crawlspaces in the Northeast.  The climate, porous construction materials and expense-conscious building designs all play a role in creating the right environment for mold infestation.

In the past, crawlspaces were often vented in an effort to limit opportunities for infestation. But venting may have actually made the problem worse, bringing in warm, moist, outdoor air loaded with mold spores and other microorganisms contained in the soil. Today, Seitz Bros. offers ways to reduce moisture in crawl spaces to make them a healthy environment for you and your family. To find out more about reducing moisture in your crawl space, be sure to visit our waterproofing division.
