Mold remediation

Would you like to finally get rid of mold permanently? We do sustainable mold remediation in the canton of Bern. By fundamentally solving the moisture problem in the building, mold no longer has a chance.

This is how they work

Sustainable mold remediation

Mold attacks the fabric of the building and forms a serious threat to the health of the people in the building. [1.] In practice, mold is often washed off with Javel water and then painted over with a diffusion-proof paint. This, unfortunately, worsens the moisture problem, which is the cause of mold, because now the moisture can more easily accumulate on the surface or in the wall.

We offer sustainable mold remediation by first carefully analyzing and eliminating the causes of moisture and then removing the mold in a manner that is gentle to the building and health. We use only chlorine-free products and vapor-permeable paints. The result is permanently mold-free rooms and an improved indoor climate. Contact us without obligation.

Questions & Answers

What is the cost of mold remediation?

We offer mold remediation from CHF 1,000 per square meter. This is only an estimate, which varies in individual cases. The cost of mold remediation depends on the extent of the infestation, the type of moisture sources, the material and accessibility of the affected area, and the methods used. Mold remediation requires several staggered treatments.

Why should mold remediation be done early?

Mold can spread quickly under favorable conditions. Early mold remediation prevents further spread, health consequences for the people in the house and structural damage to the building fabric. In addition, with a quick response to the mold, the cost of remediation is usually lower. More info about mold from the BAG

How does mold remediation work?

Mold remediation includes identifying the causes, isolating the area, mitigating the sources of moisture, removing the mold by cleaning. Most often, we finish by painting the affected walls with a diffusive anti-mold paint.

Why a mold remediation from is specialized in dehumidification of buildings and their consequential damages since 2010. We eliminate not only the mold but also its causes by solving the moisture problem in a sustainable way. Thus, mold no longer has a chance. Furthermore, our systems usually lead to a noticeable improvement of the indoor climate.

How much does mold remediation cost in Switzerland?

We do mold remediation starting at CHF 1,000 per square meter. This guideline value varies in individual cases depending on the extent of the mold infestation, causes of moisture, accessibility and material of the affected area as well as the methods used.

What do I have to consider regarding the costs?

In practice, mold in the building often has to be remediated several times because unsuitable methods are used that are supposedly favorable. Mold remediation is only successful if the causes of the mold's moisture can be mitigated. For this purpose, ventilation or dehumidification of parts of the building is often necessary.

What are the cost-driving factors?

Cost-driving factors in mold remediation are the causes of moisture, the extent of mold infestation, the materials affected and access to the mold site. For a serious mold removal, several staggered treatments are necessary.

Can you guarantee a permanently mold-free result?

Yes, by carefully analyzing the moisture causes of the mold infestation and eliminating them with appropriate measures, we can guarantee that the mold will not return. In most cases, the measures lead to a noticeable improvement of the indoor climate in the affected rooms.

How does mold remediation work?

First, we identify the causes of moisture and create a remediation concept. Then we mitigate the causes of moisture and eliminate the mold with an anti-mold treatment. In most cases, we finish by painting the wall with a breathable anti-mold paint.

Which methods does use?

Decisive for the success of mold remediation is the elimination of the cause of the moisture. Here we work either with intelligent ventilation systems or with electrophysical wall dehumidification if damp building fabric is partly responsible for the mold. We use chlorine-free products for mold removal. As for the final painting, we work exclusively with breathable anti-mold paints.

What are common mistakes in mold remediation?

In practice, mold is often washed off with Javel water and then painted over with an emulsion paint. Because the wall can now no longer breathe, moisture can more easily accumulate either under the paint or on top of it, often causing the mold to return. Only when the moisture problem is effectively solved will the mold stay away permanently.

Is the result guaranteed to be permanently mold-free?

Yes, by carefully analyzing and mitigating the causes of moisture, we can guarantee that the mold will not return. At the same time, we often achieve a noticeable improvement in the indoor climate.

What is mold?

Mold includes several fungi that thrive in moist environments. The mold forms a network within the infested material that is barely visible to the naked eye. Sporulation occurs on the surface, and in cases of heavy infestation, cotton wool-like growth occurs. Mold infestation can appear in different colors, such as black, gray, green, white, yellow and red.

What are the causes of mold?

Mold develops in the event of persistent dampness and can be promoted by insufficient ventilation. Causes of mold infestation are damp building fabric and wall surfaces due to water damage, leaking pipes, moisture rising in the wall, condensation, high humidity or inadequate heating or ventilation.

Where does mold occur?

Mold can occur in damp areas such as bathrooms, basements, kitchens and in walls. Poorly ventilated areas in general are also susceptible to mold growth.

Why should I call in a professional if I have a severe mold infestation?

On the one hand, mold does not always appear in a form that is visible to the naked eye. On the other hand, the causes of mold can be complex and have several influencing factors, some of which overlap or influence each other. For these reasons, a specialist is required to assess the extent and causes of mold infestation and to draw up a remediation concept.

What is the process of mold remediation?

Mold remediation includes inspection, identification of causes, removal of mold, remediation of causes, and final inspection.

Approximately how long does mold remediation take?

Mold remediation can take from a few days to several weeks. The effective duration depends on the size of the affected area, the severity of the mold infestation, as well as the causes of moisture.

What is your approach to mold inspection?

Mold inspection includes visual examination, moisture measurements, surface temperatures and mold testing to determine infestation and causes.

How do you protect your health when working with mold?

Wear protective equipment during mold remediation, depending on the type and extent of mold infestation. Adhere to the SUVA specifications in the leaflet "Indoor mold remediation.".

«The installed DRYMAT® system masters the difficult task. Within a very short time, the humidity has reduced to a normal level (50%-60%) and the air quality in the heating and basement is unrecognizable. No more musty smell, no more mold!» ➝ other references
