Mold Remediation of Campers & Trailers
By: Matthew Yurina, Sr. Mold Remediation Specialist
CONTAIN- the mold from spreading into uncontaminated areas;
KILL- the mold;
REMOVE- the dead mold and materials used for remediation; and
PROTECT- the cleaned out area against future mold infestations.
Campers and trailers are one of the most susceptible things in the world for mold growth for one simple reason: they spend time outdoors and can eventually gain leaks. Any organic or cellulose based surface (wood, upholstery, sheetrock, etc.) that remains damp for more than 24 hours is potential food for mold.
Before entering any area infested with mold or mold spores, be sure to have a P100 respirator. This will protect against 99.97% of mold spores. During remediation mold spores will be stirred up in the millions, and, depending upon what species youíre dealing with and how susceptible you are to that species, breathing in spores could be extremely dangerous. Itís also advisable to have gloves, goggles and protective clothing.
with mold growth can be attempted to be cleaner with oxygenated bleaches and or
by steam cleaning. It may not be possible to remove some mold and mildew stains
without destroying the canvas. Once the canvas has been cleaned it can be
Oxy-Mold MX-500 to kill the mold and mildew growth. Treat two times over
a 24-48 hour period.
After the mold remediation is completed, mold test (clearance testing) all of the remediated surfaces plus the air of each room in the basement, and the outward air flow from each heating/cooling duct register to find out if those areas are now mold safe prior to rebuilding the cleaned out areas with new building materials.
