• Mold Cleaning

    When dealing with a mold remediation company AirCare Hawaii can guarantee professional judgment by selecting the best method of clean up as well as understanding occupational health and safety.  In deciding which materials can be cleaned and what should be removed, the two most important factors are how porous (absorbent) the material is and how widespread the mold growth is.

    Mold In Hawaii
  • Moldy Restoration

    Generally, non-porous materials (metals, glass, hard plastics) and semi-porous materials (wood, plaster, concrete) that are visibly moldy but salvageable can usually be cleaned and reused.  Moldy porous materials (carpeting, wallboard, ceiling tile, wallpaper, fabric, upholstered furniture, mattresses) generally should be discarded because they absorb and hold moisture.  These materials possible may hold moisture and mold growth within and cannot be completely cleaned and thoroughly dried.

    Mold Prevention
  • METHOD ONE: / WET VACUUM

    Wet vacuums are used to collect water from carpets floors and hard surfaces where water intrusion has built up.  A wet Vacuum is only used when materials are still wet.

  • METHOD TWO: / DRYING SCRUB

    Mold spores can be dispersed into the air and can cause allergic symptoms whether the mold spores are dead or alive.  Mold can generally be cleaned up on hard surfaces water or a detergent solution to wipe and/or scrub after wiping the surface we make sure that it is dried completely so that it will discourage any future mold growth.  Porous surfaces (drywall) that are wet and have mold growth may have to be discarded.  We try to salvage as much as possible but when necessary some materials have to be contained and properly disposed.

  • METHOD THREE: / HEPA VACUUM

    The High–Efficiency Particulate Air Vacuum, is capable of trapping extremely small, micro-sized particles so that they do not become airborne.  It is used for final clean up of dried uncontaminated materials.  AirCare Hawaii also uses a HEPA vacuum for environmental cleaning of dust and debris.

  • METHOD FOUR: / DISCARD

    Discarding damaged materials that are not salvageable and put into sealed plastic bags, which is properly disposed.  Putting damaged and mold contaminated materials in sealed plastic bags is important because it minimizes any exposure.
