According to the U.S. EPA - The purpose of mold remediation is to remove the mold and prevent human exposure and further contamination to building materials and furnishings. ( see http://www.epa.gov/mold/ )
When a mold growth scenario is substantial enough or circumstances require remediation methods and practices, the following are considerations in performing mold remediation:
Containment - Using plastic barriers or enclosures to confine and control the working area and minimize further airborne contamination in other portions of the building.
Air controls - The use of negative air pressures during remediation help control air by maintaining a flow of air through a filtered air handler assembly situated in the containment area and exhausted to outdoors. The large volume of air which is flowing through the negative air unit provides a continuous draw of negative pressure which removes all particulate from the air continuously.
Anti-fungal treatments- Cleaning solutions are used in the remediation process which kill active mold growth and render remaining mold spores non-viable to grow mold.. Anti-fungal treatments and sealants are applied to wall cavities and walls as part of the remediation process for example.Protective gear- Those performing remediation will wear protective clothing or respiratory protection in many of the remediation processes when exposure to mold will occur.
