Preventing Cross-Contamination During Mold Remediation

A mold-contaminated home will have hordes of microscopic mold spores lurking within the immediate vicinity of the contamination. If not done properly, efforts to remove the mold can result in cross-contamination, dispersing the mold spores to areas that were not previously overrun with mold. It’s best to leave mold remediation tasks to mold remediation professionals.

Mold remediation experts like Rytech Nashville utilize methods that have been proven to be effective in preventing cross-contamination. Some of these measures include:

Preliminary air sampling

This helps mold remediation professionals identify mold-contaminated areas. These target areas can then be isolated to prevent spores from spreading to locations that remain mold-free.

Air sealing

If the contaminated area is more than 30 square feet, it will be air sealed with 6 mil plastic barriers to isolate it from the rest of the house. HVAC vents in the affected area will also be sealed.

Applying negative air pressure

To be able to prevent airborne spores from spreading to mold-free areas, a negative air machine will be installed; this reduces the air pressure in the contaminated site. The device comes with a highly efficient HEPA filtration system, which helps contain the spores.

Access restrictions

Only trained mold remediation professionals who are equipped with professional protective equipment are allowed within the contaminated area while mold remediation operations are ongoing.


After all active mold growth and any infected materials have been removed, the entire area is vacuumed with HEPA-filtered equipment.  It will then be unsealed, with all surfaces inside the area wiped down with an antimicrobial cleaner. 

Post mold remediation air sampling

Air samples will be taken throughout the home, to ensure that mold has been removed and all the other parts of the house remain uncontaminated.

A Must Try Deer Fencing Solutions!

There is a perfect solution that actually works to avoid an uninvited deer visiting your plants and crops. Here are a few recommendations from Straight Shooter Game Fencing that are absolutely worth trying:

Lower Fencing Options

Deer are extremely agile and capable of clearing a 10-foot tall barrier. A good vantage point of what’s behind the fenced area will make the deer hesitate to jump inside for fear of predators. 

The following are lower fence solution options that will prevent deer from entering your property:

  • Picket fences. A tightly-spaced, four to five feet picket fence will not only protect your property’s privacy but also prevent deer from seeing the other side of the fence. This will prompt them to forage for food somewhere else.
  • Use planters as distractions. Arranging several planters within the picket fence has the same effect aforementioned; deer cannot see beyond the planters and will hesitate to jump into unknown territory. 
  • Double picket fences: Another strategic approach is to install two, three- to four-foot picket fences right next to one another and just a few feet apart. The deer will hesitate in making that jump, and you’ll still be able to utilize the space in between fences. 

Traditional Deer Fencing Options 

Straight Shooter Game Fencing is a renowned professional high fence contractor. We offer proven and tested solutions to keep deer at bay. 

  • Chain link fence. This is one of the most popular types of fencing solutions and can go as high as twelve feet. These fences come in a wide range of gauges and meet various functional and design requirements.
  • Split rail with chain link. The combination of a split rail wood fence and chain link fencing will effectively prevent deer and other critters away from entering your property. Call Straight Shooter Game Fencing for customized options. 
  • Electric fencing. With an electric fence, the current is supplied by a high-voltage charger. It emits regular and timed high-energy pulses, followed by one second with no current flow. 
  • Wood fencing. A quality wood fence is a beautiful addition to any property, plus it’s also a deer deterrent.
