We provide professional vehicle mold remediation services with an 11 step approach:
In addition to utilizing mold remediation peroxide based chemicals, we utilize ozone gas technology to kill mold spores that can't be reached chemically
i.e. ventilation system, carpet padding, seat foam, behind plastic panels, etc, etc.
In order to ensure the mold does not return, the source of the leak should be fixed and verified prior to beginning the mold remediation process. For an additional fee, we can perform a hydro test on all seals and common leak sources if the source of the leak is unknown and cannot be determined. The vehicle must be able to be started and the ventilation fan must be in good working order. The vehicle must be in safe secure location in proximity to a power outlet. The vehicle must be completely dry prior to beginning the mold remediation process.
Note: The vehicle must be completely dry before beginning the mold remediation process. There may be an additional charge to dry out the vehicle depending on how wet the vehicle is. Drying out carpet padding can be a very time consuming process. We can coach the owner on how to best do this to save them in the cost of the drying service.
1) verify source of leak has been identified and fixed (perform hydro test if necessary)
2) verify vehicle is dry (dry out if necessary)
3) remove all contents from the vehicle (all compartments including spare tire and all items in the spare tire compartment)
4) remove cabin air filter
5) remediate every square inch of the interior with a peroxide based mold remediation chemical
6) dry vehicle after remediation
7) place industrial ozone machines in vehicle for three to five hours (possibly longer depending on the situation)
8) after ozone machines finish their run time, start the vehicle and cycle the concentrated ozone through the ventilation system for a minimum of one hour
9) evacuate ozone gas out of vehicle for 30 minutes
10) install new cabin air filter
11) air out vehicle for an additional three hours (this is an important step because ozone in concentrated amounts is a respiratory irritant and should be avoided)
After step 11 has been completed, the vehicle can be safely occupied. Ozone is a gas and leaves behind a residual odor. This odor with dissipate over several days. The more the vehicle is aired out, the quicker the odor will dissipate.
