Mold Remediation

mold remediation


CPM Environmental’s mold remediation process removes and/or cleans up mold from indoor environments. Our process prevents the emission of fungi and dust contaminated with fungi from leaving a work area and entering occupied or nonabatement areas, while protecting the health of workers performing the abatement.

Our process eliminates mold and fungal growth and removes contaminated materials. Simply killing mold is not enough—chemicals and proteins that cause reactions in humans are still present even in dead mold. Following are some of our removal techniques:

Dry ice freeze blasting:
CPM Environmental has experience utilizing dry ice as a medium in which to remove mold. This process involves the “sand blasting” of the contaminated area with dry ice rather than sand. The abrasive nature of the dry ice removes the mold while providing no blasting medium residue for clean-up. This process is utilized to remove certain mold contamination from surfaces such as wood and cement.

Damp wipe:
Damp wipe is the removal of mold from non-porous surfaces by wiping or scrubbing with water and a detergent. Care must be exercised to make sure the material is allowed to quickly dry to discourage any further mold growth.

HEPA vacuum:
High Efficiency Particulate Air filtered vacuum cleaners are used in the final cleanup of remediation areas after materials have been thoroughly dried and all contaminated materials have been removed. HEPA vacuum cleaners are recommended for the cleanup of the outside areas surrounding the remediation area, such as after dryice blasting or scraping. During this process the workers wear proper personal protective equipment (PPE) to prevent exposure to mold and other contaminants. The collected debris and dust is stored in impervious bags and/or containers to prevent any release of mold spores or contaminated debris.

Worker Protection:
According to the hygienists report, CPM Environmental workers will be properly protected from the mold spores and contaminated materials. During the remediation process, the level of contamination dictates the level of protection for the remediation workers. The levels of contamination are described as Levels I, II, and III. Each has specific requirements for worker safety.
