Cutting Out Mold by Hand in Sparta, IL Home

When it comes to most porous materials such as wood and drywall, the only way to rid them of mold is to remove them completely. The reason these materials cannot be salvaged is because when mold grows on one of these surfaces, it roots itself deep into the pores and no amount of cleaning can pull it out. That is one reason why using bleach doesn’t actually remediate mold and leaves you with hidden mold that is allowed to grow for longer. Thus why we have to strip areas that are heavily damaged by mold.

In this Sparta, IL home, mold was found all over the walls and floor of the basement. Our technicians had to move quickly to remove the affected surfaces and set up a negative-pressure area to filter mold spores. The after photo displays the wall behind the drywall, free of dangerous mold.
