Mold can gradually destroy things that they grow on and can spread quickly. When you think of mold, you might think mold issues are only found in residential homes. However, they can also be found in public and commercial buildings. Contractors and professionals who handle mold situations have to go through a process to remediate mold. When building managers contact a professional, the professional can take note of the type of damage that has taken place and also note the type of mold. Once the identity of the source or cause of the growth of mold has been finalized, a plan is made and equipment is needed to control and remediate the mold problem. The Environmental Protection Agency provides a flow chart with the key steps of mold remediation:

What equipment is use to remediate mold? Mold grows when there is moisture and moisture meters are helpful for measuring moisture content. Humidity Meters can also be used to measure both temperature and humidity levels indoors. Contaminated areas, need mold contaminated surfaces such as full or limited containments. An exhaust fan or a HEPA filtered fan unit can be used to ensure that contaminated areas do not exhaust the contaminated area into other areas of the building. Many other companies may utilize ThermaPureHeat to get rid of mold, fungus, mildew and odors that can take place when mold exists in a building. It is an alternative process if no chemicals need to be used to remediate mold. Mold if not taken care of quickly can grow and cause property damage to your building.
