It’s normal to get upset when you see mold spreading in your home or business, especially after your DIY attempts to remove it have failed. At first, it seems like you can scrub it away, but a few days later, the mold is back, and now it’s spreading. 

At that point, you know it’s time to call a professional mold remediation company, but maybe you’ve heard that mold remediation requires the demolition of walls, flooring, or ceilings. A+ Restoration and Cleaning is here to tell you that successful mold remediation and cleaning can happen with zero demolition. Keep reading to learn more.

Dry Fog 101

For years, mold remediation specialists have been searching for a mold removal solution that didn’t involve demolition. Home or business owners don’t want someone breaking into their walls, flooring, or ceiling with sledgehammers and axes to reach the mold on their property. But in the past, that was often the only way we could access and destroy all of the mold spores and eliminate the source. 

Fortunately, with the advent of dry fog technology, we can now eliminate mold spores in any property quickly, effectively, and with no demolition. 

With dry fog, tiny mold-killing particles fill your home or business. These particles are the size of a micron and are so small that they will bounce around the room for several minutes before finally dissipating. 

Nothing in your home or business gets wet. Therefore, our technicians don’t need to remove anything from the property before beginning the process. ​

What is the dry fog mold remediation process?

Dry fog for mold removal is a two-step process.

First, the entire area is filled with a safe and EPA-registered vapor. It maintains contact with all surfaces and remains in the air long enough to ensure that every mold spore is destroyed. 

Next, another type of dry fog is pumped into the room, creating an antimicrobial barrier over every surface. The EPA has certified that this type of fog keeps mold, bacteria, and viruses from returning to these surfaces for at least 90 days. 

How is dry fog different from wet fog?

Dry fog produces smaller droplets. They rebound around the room, creating a fine vapor. The vapor and fumes create a devastating atmosphere for mold and bacteria. 

But how is dry fog different than wet fog? Fog is fog, right? Not exactly. 

Mold remediation with wet fog or ozone involves larger droplets that burst throughout your property, creating wet surfaces. Larger particles also can’t fit into every tiny crevice, creating molecular-sized gaps in coverage. 

For these reasons, dry fog is the superior choice. It leaves absolutely no residue! 

Is it safe for my family and pets?

We understand that the health and wellness of your family and pets are paramount. So it is normal to wonder about the safety of dry fog. To set your mind at ease, before bringing this technology to market, it has been tested extensively and approved by the EPA. 

Every ingredient in the mixture is non-toxic, non-corrosive, and EPA-approved for safety. Our team only fogs one room at a time to ensure your family and pets don’t come in contact with the vapors.
