  1. Identify the Moisture Source: We must first determine where the moisture is coming from and fix the source of the moisture problem. We will perform a full mold assessment and provide an evaluation of our course of action.
  2. Containment & Air Filtration: Containing the affected area is critical in preventing mold spores from spreading and contaminating other areas of your home or building. Within the containment, we establish negative air to also prevent aerosolized mold spread.
  3. Remove Contaminated Materials: Our trained and certified mold remediation technicians are fully prepared to take all precautions with your home or building as well as themselves by utilizing the proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Proper safety precautions are taken to prevent the spread of mold spores when removing and disposing of contaminated materials such as ceiling tiles, drywall, insulation, carpet, and padding.
  4. Mold Remediation: We can now proceed with the mold remediation process. Some non-porous materials such as glass and plastic can be cleaned and dried in-place. Wood and other semi porous materials, depending on the severity of mold damage, can be dried, sanded, and treated with an environmentally safe anti-microbial agent (EPA approved) that is both safe for children and pets.
  5. Post Remediation Verification (PRV) Testing: The final step to our mold removal process is the Post Remediation Verification (PRV) Test. This test determines the success efforts of the mold remediation within the contained area and if it is safe for homeowners or building occupants to safely enter.
  6. Reconstruction: Werner Restoration works with you to rebuild your home or building back to pre-loss condition. Let us take the stress out of the reconstruction process by general contracting the coordination of walls, floors, ceilings, carpeting, and other remodeling contractors.
