First Atlantic’s 5 Steps To a Safe Home


The most important thing to remember if you see mold is: Don’t try to clean it up yourself! Well-meaning homeowners who think they can take care of the problem themselves may instead contribute to it by encouraging the spread of spores. Call First Atlantic right away and we will come out and perform a complete mold assessment for your home.

Mold Remediation Process

We pride ourselves on our integrity. If our services are not necessary, we will tell you. If your mold problem is slight, we can give you the solutions you need to take care of the issue yourself. Remember: before doing the job yourself, protect your family by calling us.


Before any kind of mitigation services can be provided, it is essential to isolate and contain the mold contamination to the area in which it is present in order to discourage further growth. If any other mold cleanup company tries to begin mold removal processes before taking containment measures, don’t let them continue; call us instead. All of our technicians are thoroughly trained and experienced in how to keep mold growth to a single area and we never bypass this essential step. We always follow proper procedure and perform due diligence according to EPA standards and regulations.


One of the quickest ways for mold to spread is through the air and via your ventilation system. We use specialized filtration equipment that uses “negative air” technologies and specialized “air scrubbers” to actually prevent air-borne mold from spreading during the removal process. It is a preventive measure that helps to ensure that mold spores remain contained.

Two Remediation Categories

Before proceeding with any of Steps 2-5, First Atlantic technicians must receive written consent from the homeowner to perform any and all mold removal tasks. Our remediation process falls into two categories. The process used will be determined by the severity of the problem and the determinations made during the assessment step.

  • Light mold presence – If mold growth is caught early enough, our trained technicians can successfully use chemical treatments on the affected areas without having to remove any existing structural elements in the home.
  • More severe cases – If mold growth is advanced or if there are colonies within and behind walls or ceilings or under flooring, it may be necessary to remove problem areas altogether: drywall, carpeting, ceiling tiles, roofing, etc.

Our goal after mold removal is complete is to return your home as closely as possible to its pre-loss condition. All of our repairs are performed by our in-house professionals so you can be sure all repair jobs will be done right and in a timely manner.
