Ozone and Mold Remediation

Ozone can effectively remove mold and eradicate any remaining mold spores in the air and on surrounding surfaces.

  1. Identify the source and remove the physical mold

  2. Ask yourself some questions
  • Do you have loose seams? Mold can start behind the dry wall and grow out into the room.
  • Have you had water damage inside the room and soaked the dry wall with a wicking process?

Steps to Take:

  • In all cases the moldy drywall needs to be removed or cleaned with a mold and mildew inhibitor. Spraying the inhibitor directly on the surface where the mold was previously visible is a guarantee in eliminating the left over dangerous spores.
  • If a mold and mildew inhibitor can not be purchased then the following home remedy (which is not guaranteed) may help. Mix up a desired amount of 40% bleach / 60% water into a spray bottle or weed sprayer depending on the area needing treatment.
  • Do not scrub since the contaminated toxic spores will float in the air and enter your ventilation system. This could possibly contaminate your entire home / building in the future.
  • A high output ozone generator should be used to kill any spores that might have become air-borne and entered into the return air of the ventilation system. Those spores once in one room might settle in another part of the structure causing problems to continue.
  • Because ozone is heavier than air, make sure the ozone generator is set at waist level or above for killing all mold spores that could possibly begin growing mold at some point. This precautionary process is a safe method of preventing mold growth in the future.

*NOTE: At these high concentration levels, no human, plant or animal should be present in the air space. Call for suggested products.
