Mold Remediation Equipment Is Essential for Clean Up

A mold outbreak is a real headache for any homeowner. The discolored mold colonies look unsightly, and there is a real risk of damage to your home and belongings. Some items need to be discarded if the fungi have penetrated too deeply. The structure of your house might suffer. There is also the unpleasant fact of that nasty moldy smell and that mold can cause health effects.
 
Mold damage in your Etowah home leaves your house feeling unclean and contaminated. Thankfully our SERVPRO experts are on hand to contain the outbreak and prevent the further spread of spores leading to new mold patches. Our mold remediation team quickly establishes a safe working area and thoroughly cleans every surface to remove mold.
 
One important aspect of our mold remediation work is helping restore air quality in your home. We use air scrubbers and negative air machines to clean the air in your house and reduce the presence of spores. Air scrubbers are portable filtration systems that play a vital role in improving air quality. The scrubbers draw air through a series of powerful HEPA filters that trap mold spores as small as 0.3 microns and remove them from the air. The result is cleaner air with less fungal spores in it.
 
Negative air machines are similar to air scrubbers, with the addition that they draw contaminated air and vent it to the exterior. Venting air outside is useful in two ways: Mold spores are removed from your house, and a vacuum is created to prevent further spreading of the fungus.
 
Our IICRC-certified technicians come equipped with a range of cleaning materials and tools that complement the air scrubbing process. Our arsenal includes powerful HEPA vacuums that we use to suction up mold spores and debris to prevent them from resettling. We also have access to fogging machines which compress disinfectants into a mist that penetrates surfaces and kills mold spores. Other foggers can also deodorize the affected areas, putting a finishing touch to the mold remediation.
 
SERVPRO teams also oversee drying out of your home or contaminated rooms after the mold remediation process. Getting your home and belongings dry to their normal level of moisture content is vital for helping prevent another mold outbreak. Our experts have dehumidifiers on hand to bring down the humidity in the air, and air movers for drying out specific areas.
