Mold Remediation

The most crucial aspect of any project we undertake is remediation, which entails eliminating mold and its toxins. We are confident that no one else can eliminate the harmful effects of mold on health like we can because no other company possesses our protocols or technology.

Mold Remediation:

What is mold remediation?

Below are three distinct ways in which a professional or anybody may refer to “mold remediation.” It’s worth reading because each sets a different set of expectations in regard to what you may assume you are getting for your money.

1. The broadest definition: Remediation is defined by the Oxford Dictionary as the process of fixing something, especially by reversing or stopping damage to the environment. This includes mold inspection, mold testing, and sometimes mold removal. This definition implies that a plumber, roofer or other non-remediation company would be part of the remediation effort.

2. Middle-ground definition: The term “mold remediation” is most commonly used to refer to the entire process of eliminating the visual and health aspects of mold. This includes all services that we offer: inspection, moisture-detection, demolition, removal of affected materials and furnishings, air-scrubbing, and light reconstruction. The terms “mold removal,” “mold restoration,” and “mold abatement” are often used interchangeably with “mold remediation” However, these are not accurate synonyms and are instead components of the remediation process. 

3. The narrowest and most common definition:  All mold-related remediation work completed after inspection and testing and prior to reconstruction.

We frequently advise our clients to use a separate mold inspection service. We always use a third-party laboratory to test any air or mold samples that we acquire. It’s important to note that almost always, a plumber, roofer, or HVAC company needs to get involved in order to get rid of the moisture issues “feeding” any new mold growth. The customer will then typically either choose to hire a remodeling or construction company to rebuild what had to be removed after we have finished our work.

As you can see, almost never is a single business or expert responsible for mold remediation. The third definition is the best because it accurately sets expectations for what a remediation company will actually do. While we do testing and inspections, many remediation companies in Florida don’t do inspections and testing, nor do they include any major reconstruction.  

What is the best way to kill and denature mold?

Choosing the right mold remediation company is essential to avoid the health effects of mold and its mycotoxins. Here are three major factors to consider when reviewing a service provider: 1) The service providers ability to treat large volumes of air and surfaces. 2) Whether the disinfectants your provider uses, kills the types of mold found in your home and meet the required dwell-time for your type of mold. 3) Third, does their chosen remediation method effectively denature both the mold itself as well its toxins so they are no longer able to cause harm after they leave.

UV Light

Ultraviolet light can be a powerful tool to combat germs, however it is limited in its ability to reach all the nooks and crannies of contaminated surfaces. Ultimately, this makes UV disinfection an impractical method for most cases – and therefore it doesn’t warrant the time to go over its pros or cons.


Ozone molecules are extremely small – measuring only .0001272 micrometers. This makes ozone incredibly effective at destroying mold everywhere.  Ozone machines also come with an affordable price tag that a DIY’er would love. On the surface ozone looks like the best possible choice; however…

“Available scientific evidence shows that at concentrations that do not exceed public health standards, ozone has little potential to remove indoor air contaminants.” -

Liquid Disinfectants

Spray or Mist

Spraying and misting are less effective disinfectant methods due to the inability of larger droplets to reach into all the hard-to-reach areas in your home. Liquid solutions, like those containing bleach may not be as useful since they often contain mostly water which can make mold issues worse. To address this problem you should use alternative approaches such as wiping down surfaces with wipes or soaps that provide a longer dwell time on contact for better results against spores in tough spots around your home!

Wet Fog

Fogging machines provide an effective wetting of exposed objects with their tiny droplets, but the droplet size still prevents it from being as effective as other alternatives. 

Dry Fog

With Pure Maintenance’s dry fog application, mold is eliminated from every corner of an indoor environment without wetting surfaces. Not only does this method provide sustained dwell-time on visible and non-visible areas alike, it also neutralizes any airborne mycotoxins. While ozone may achieve even better results, our dry fog process eliminates the toxicity that ozone introduces.  For the disinfection step in the remediation process, dry fog is without question the best solution on the market
