First, we′ll tell you HOW TO SPEND MORE MONEY
Here is how mold abatement is usually done. First, all the personal stuff is moved out of the area where the mold is located. Furniture, clothing, toys, everything must be removed.
Next, the abatement contractor
isolates the area where the mold is located by building some kind of containment, usually poly sheets covering the walls and doors. A single room can take from a few hours to a full day
After the containment is built the air is scrubbed using an air scrubber or a negative air machine. This machine must run continuously, night and day,
from the moment it is turned on until air samples are collected and analyzed to confirm the air is safe.
Once the containment is set up and the air scrubber operating, any surface with discoloration like mold is removed. So your sheet rock, walls or ceilings would be removed. This can take a day or two
, depending on how much discoloration there is.
Often the air is scrubbed for 24 hours
after the mold is removed and before the air samples are collected, adding yet another day to the process.
If the air samples pass, the contractor returns and removes the containment. Three to five days
just to remove the mold.
Then you get to hire another contractor
to replace the walls and ceilings that are now gone. More time and money
Compare this to leaving your home or office in the morning and returning the same day
. The mold has been removed and you can continue your life uninterrupted
