How Our Bethlehem Mold Removal Service Works
Our Bethlehem mold removal service follows a thorough 12-step process to fully rid your residential and commercial space of mold while curbing the chance of regrowth. Armed with an evidence-based approach, our certified indoor air quality experts in Bethlehem will:
Evaluate the mold
A certified indoor environmentalist (CIE) inspects, tests, and identifies the underlying cause of mold in your home or commercial space.
Contain and filter the affected area
A sealed physical barrier contains the affected area, and we put our advanced HEPA filtration system to work.
Protect your property
We protect floors and personal property using tarps and covers to prevent contamination and damage.
HEPA vacuum your personal items
We use a HEPA vacuum explicitly designed to remove dust, debris, and mold spores from your personal items.
Demolish any wet materials
We remove and demolish any damp building materials, such as drywall, trim, insulation, or subfloors, to prevent future regrowth.
Treat with an antimicrobial agent
Surfaces, such as floor joists and porous surfaces, receive an antimicrobial treatment to further inhibit future mold regrowth.
Seal the surfaces
We apply a coat of sealant to masonry walls to reduce groundwater weeping and hydraulic pressure.
Scrub surface mold
We apply an antimicrobial cleanser to the affected surfaces and scrub. This stage of the mold removal process helps remove the potential for regrowth.
Coat porous surfaces
With surface scrubbing complete, we apply an antimicrobial coating to porous surfaces.
Air wash and re-test
We use HEPA-equipped air washers to eliminate any airborne mold spores. Finally, after 1-3 days after recirculation, we’ll re-test your space for the presence of mold.

How We Inspect and Test for Mold
While it’s normal for some microorganisms to linger in indoor air, they should be significantly less than the amount outdoors. However, when excessive moisture from leaks, floods, or other water sources permeates the environment, microorganisms can amplify. When you contact our Bethlehem mold removal company, we’ll visit your property to assess the mold. Our mold inspection and testing procedure may include:
- Bioaerosol test for live and dead mold spores
- Surface samples
- Bulk samples identify and quantify the mold family and species
We compare the results to known indoor air quality (IAQ) guidelines by organizations, such as:
- ACGIH (American Council of Government Industrial Hygienists)
- AIHA (American Industrial Hygienists Association)
- HBA (Healthy Buildings International)
- WHO (World Health Organization)
- IESO (Indoor Environmental Standards Organization)
- IAQAO1-200 (Indoor Air Quality Alliance)
- OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Association)
Bethlehem Mold Removal FAQs
How did mold get inside my house or building?
Mold is naturally occurring in the environment, especially here in Bethlehem. In fact, many harmless spores exist both inside and outside. They only become dangerous when they enter your house or commercial building and begin multiplying or have ideal conditions to grow.
Common mold invasion avenues from the outdoors include vents, open windows and doors, and heating and cooling equipment. Mold can also enter your space from the outdoors through pets, closing, shoes, and other items. If you have an exceptionally moist area, mold can grow and amplify on its own. Look to particularly prone spots, such as roof, window, or pipe leaks.
Does mold affect your health?
Yes. No matter the type of mold, it can pose a variety of risks to your health, including:
Coughing or wheezing
Itchy or burning eyes
Shortness of breath
Asthma in children
Can mold damage your property?
Yes. Certain mold species can eat away at structural and building materials, including ceiling tiles, floorboards, drywall, wallpaper, framing materials, and more. Bethlehem mold removal can help prevent this damage to your residential or commercial property.
How long does mold removal take?
We can often complete the entire Bethlehem mold removal process within a few days. However, the completion timeframe is often influenced by the amount of mold, the location of the mold, the materials on which the mold grows, the amount of damage, and whether building material restoration is required. Our Bethlehem mold removal team can provide an accurate timeline, so you know what to expect.
