Mold Remediation Services

Remediating mold with dry iceMold remediation is at the heart of what we do. Our reputation as a New Hampshire-based mold removal company is anchored on the trust that our clients place in us to honestly evaluate their situation, and thoroughly perform our service. We make every attempt to eliminate 99% of the mold and take every step to ensure that it does not grow back. Our pricing is honest and upfront, and we always leave the decision up to our clients as to how far they want to proceed in the remediation/restoration process. We make every effort to educate our clients in the remediation process, so they fully understand the pros and cons of performing a complete mold remediation project.

After we have received test results back from an independent testing laboratory, the remediation process can begin. The two most common places for high mold growth is in the attic and basement. At New England remediation services we have a specialized piece of equipment called a Dry Ice Blaster. This machine kills 99.9% of mold spores on contact, freezing them, and then physically removing them-roots and all-from their food source. We are one of only a few mold removal companies in New Hampshire that own this equipment.

After dry ice blasting, we apply a nontoxic biocide to kill and prevent mold from re-colonizing. Because the dry ice blasting process is so thorough, less biocide is needed after the mold is removed. Some mold removal companies that do not provide dry ice blasting will simply spray the mold with a biocide, leaving the mold spore intact. This will inevitably result in a re-infestation of mold.

The real challenge (and cost) of a mold remediation project depends upon the location and extent of mold development and water intrusion. Some mold removal projects are straightforward. The mold is visible on the surface only, and perhaps a moisture problem is easily remedied by installing ventilation. Water that is leaking down through interior walls and hard to access spots can create a much bigger project. When water has been allowed to remain inside walls for an extended period of time, mold colonies have formed behind sheet rock walls, requiring the sheet rock to be removed, the water source identified and repaired. The remaining mold can now be cleaned from inside the walls.

After the mold has been removed, we can then replace the sheetrock, trim, and paint back to its original condition. This part of the job is called “restoration.”

We are available to perform any or all of the services required along the way.

Another optional step to further sanitizing your home from a mold spore re-infestation is to have us clean your ductwork. Airborne mold spores can lodge themselves in the dust found in your heating ducts, along with a host of other allergens. We regularly perform HVAC duct cleaning services for residential and commercial clients, and would be happy to provide you a proposal for this as well.
