Depending on the problem, the service expert may recommend mold testing to better determine the scope of the issue.

All contaminated surfaces will be cleaned with the HEPA vacuum to remove mold growth. “Soft” surfaces like carpeting will be cleaned with the HEPA vacuum as well, to remove mold spores and other particulates that may have settled within carpet fibers. Contaimated surfaces will then be wiped down to remove spores and reduce staining.
