Fogging is not complete remediation and should never be used as a single method to get rid of mold.
It’s a tool in the toolbox. And like any tool, it has to be used properly for it to add any value to the treatment protocol. If you use it as the only way to remove mold, you’ll only be removing what exists on the surfaces of the home but leave behind the root cause of the problem. Fogging doesn’t fix water intrusion and it doesn’t remove colonies of mold growing behind your walls (even if you fogged behind them).
What is fogging actually good for? It’s great as part of the cleanup AFTER remediation. The process can help bring aerosolized particles to surfaces in the home to more thoroughly clean the entire site. Make sure you hire someone who knows how to use it properly.
