SPECIALTY MOLD SERVICE
THE MOLD REMEDIATION PROCESS
Every mold damage scenario is different and requires a unique solution, but the regular mold remediation process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our standard process:
1. Emergency Contact - (888)624-MOLD
The mold remediation process begins when you call us at TKOR Solutions. Our representative will ask a series of questions to help determine the necessary equipment and materials, how long the process should take and how much personnel the project will require.
2. Inspection and Mold Damage Assessment
We carefully inspect your property for visible signs of mold. Mold feeds on cellulose and water and can be hidden from plain view. We use state of the art technology to detect mold and hidden water sources.
3. Mold Containment
We at TKOR Solutions utilize various containment procedures to prevent the spread of mold and/or cross contamination. These procedures include negative air chambers to isolate the contaminated area within physical barriers and negative air pressure to keep the mold spores from spreading during the remediation. Any air circulation within the property is controlled and/or redirected to prevent the spread of mold in your property.
4. Air Filtration
Our HEPA filtration equipment allows us at TKOR Solutions to capture microscopic mold spores out of the air. We utilize powerful Air Scrubbers and HEPA Vacuums to prevent the spread of mold spores during remediation process.
5. Removing Mold and Mold-Infested Materials
The process of mold remediation will vary depending on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces on which the mold appears. We at TKOR Solutions will use EPA approved anti-fungal and/or antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. To remediate heavy mold growth we will carefully remove and properly dispose of porous materials that are contaminated by mold, such as drywall and carpeting.
6. Cleaning Contents and Belongings
We at TKOR Solutions will thoroughly treat you furniture, decorative items, curtains, clothing, and other restorable belongings affected by mold. We use a variety of cleaning techniques to treat your belongings for mold damage. We will also remove odors and airborne microbes using our advanced fogging equipment.
Depending on the level of mold damage, drywall, subfloors, and other building materials may have to be removed. Restoration may involve repairs, such as replacing drywall, tiles, floors, painting, and/or installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business. The restoration step gets your property back to normal.

MOLD REMOVAL v. MOLD REMEDIATION
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?
Airborne mold spores exist naturally almost everywhere indoors and outdoors. Because of this, removing all mold from a property is impossible. Please beware of the many remediation businesses that advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove "all" mold from your property. This deviates from contemporary remediation standards and governing laws concerning mold remediation, is impossible, highly unethical and in many cases illegal. Some important things you should know about mold are:
Mold is present both indoors and outdoors.
Mold spores are microscopic and can spread in the air entering your property through windows, doors, HVAC systems or countless other portals.
Mold thrives on moisture and can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants and are connected to serious health problems.
Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold is probable to return.
Mold often produces a strong, musty, recognizable odor and can often exist behind wall or places where the mold can't be seen.
Higher-than-normal indoor humidity will support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity low and use a dehumidifier to prevent mold if you must.
We at TKOR Solutions are fully licensed to remediate your mold the proper way. We possess state of the art equipment and the expertise to remediate mold within your property while maintaining the TKOR Standard and customer satisfaction.
