If you found some moldy housing materials in your old home and you are having the materials removed, there are some things you want to consider before you start the project. Even if you are capable of doing the DIY project on your own, you want to make sure that you don't end up with problems because of the debris and things that are left behind. Here are some of the things that you want to consider.
Get a Dumpster
Getting a dumpster is one of the first things that you need to do, because you don't know what type of contaminants could be in the materials that you are tossing out, and you can't risk putting these in your normal garbage can. You also don't want these materials around your home while you wait to fit them in your regular trash can. Get the dumpster dropped off, find out the specifics about what can be thrown in it, and then have it hauled away when the project is over.
Call a Construction and Mold Cleaning Company
If you are worried about dust, toxins and other things being a problem while you are going through the renovation, you want to call a cleaning company to completely clean everything after the project is finished. You don't want any drywall dust, asbestos, or anything that can be harmful floating through the air. Let them know that you want a bacterial treatment applied to the property, and that you want the areas treated for mold.
Get a Dehumidifier and Air Purification Machine
You want the air in the space to be clean and safe to breath. Get a machine that regulates the levels of moisture in the air, so the mold isn't a concern again in the future, and make sure that you get an air purification machine to constantly run throughout the house. This can take a lot of pollutants out of the air.
If you are going to remove some debris and damaged materials in your home and you aren't sure what you need to do with the old materials, or how to be sure that this problem won't happen again in the future, you'll want to do the above listed things. Once you have the materials hauled away and all of the space cleaned properly, you won't have to worry about contamination and all the problems mold and mildew can bring.
