Montana Basement Solutions uses a five-step process for its mold remediation service. This five-step process ensures that the mold in your business has been completely eradicated.
Phase I – Discovery and Detection:
The first part of the process is finding the mold. Our experienced technicians take environmental samples and do a visual inspection of the premises. The technicians also perform a “building physical,” including a comprehensive biological collection protocol. Furthermore, a complete sampling method locates all toxic molds, pathogenic bacteria and fungi.
We also identify the source of the water problem, which could be a roof leak, a wet basement or leaking plumbing. We also explain ventilation and the use of the ventilation fans in the bathrooms and kitchen to make sure you do not introduce moisture, which can encourage the growth of more mold. As a water mitigation specialist – and a licensed contractor, we can often resolve the root source of the water concerns prior to treatment for mold. This means your problem is fixed right from the start – eliminating repeat remediation concerns due to unaddressed problems.
Phase II – Pre-Testing:
Montana Basement Solutions uses a third party independent lab to analyze the test cultures for viability. The results are certified by the lab. If the lab finds no contamination, your home or business is certified as free from contamination. If the lab test results are positive, we can discusses a treatment and maintenance plan with you. If desired, a third party testing reference can be provided as well.
Phase III – Treatment:
Technicians come out to your home or business to apply our enzyme-based formulas to start mold remediation. The process is conducted only by our professionally trained technicians – overseen by an experience manager or technician. All remediation treatments are optionally provided during evenings or weekends to accommodate business concerns as needed. Our products get applied to the surface walls or injected/fogged behind the walls to ensure that all mold in the contaminated area is killed and removed. The technology is also applied to air vents to treat hidden mold and bacteria issues, which could be at high enough levels to be toxic. Note that while many remediation companies claim to “kill” mold – they are often using chemicals in your home or office. Montana Basement Solutions only uses all natural, safe, and non-toxic bio-enzyme based materials to treat mold concerns. Our carefully vetted process ensures that your home is safe for your family, pets and even plants – giving you piece of mind, and a healthy home.
Phase IV — Post Testing:
Once the remediation has been completed, we return within 48 to 72 hours to test the treated areas. We provide the data analyses to you on a confidential basis so that you can see that all mold has been eradicated and that the treated areas are now safe.
Phase V — Prevention:
Our technicians educate you on our remediation program as well as prevention and maintenance plans. These plans are tailored to your home or business and help prevent future outbreaks. Several actions by you will help keep mold from recurring, including using ventilation fans, keeping the humidity in your home or workplace between 30 and 50 percent and avoiding use of carpeting in areas that get wet, especially in bathrooms.
Our trained mold pros also adhere to all EPA guidelines for mold remediation and testing procedures.
Why Use Montana Basement Solutions Enzyme based Products?
We feature exclusive, organic formulas that are not toxic to pets, people, plants, clothing, furniture and carpets. The product is safe both during and after application. It is effective on drywall, framing, flooring, clothing and furniture. All enzymes used to create our enzyme based formulas are on the FDA’s GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe) list.
The Advantage of Using Our Formulas:
Since the products we use are all natural and non-toxic, they are safe to use in homes and businesses. These non-pathogenic and non-flammable substances allow people to enter their homes and work places immediately after treatment.
How Long Does the Process Take?
The remediation process usually takes less than three days, so buildings can be treated when the homeowner is on vacation or when a business is closed after hours or on a weekend.
Why Should I Choose This Process and Your Company?
Per the EPA’s Mold Remediation Guidelines “Dead mold is still allergenic, and some dead molds are potentially toxic.” Most traditional remediation processes kill the mold but do not remove the mold. Our formulas not only kill the mold, they safely consume the mold to remove it from your home. And, since there are no volatile organic compounds in the formulas, your home or business has a fresh, clean scent. Furthermore, the process is fast, allowing minimal interruption in work and disruption to your home.
Using bio-enzyme based professional products saves you money because you don’t always have to replace drywall, carpeting and other items that were affected by the mold.
