PPE Protects Mold Remediation Technicians from SERVPRO During Cleanups in Seminole

Rely on SERVPRO for Safe Mold Removal

After you discover mold damage in your home, it is time to call in the professionals. The fungi can damage everything from clothes and soft furnishing to drywall, and can also move throughout your home, thus spreading the contamination. Although it is not possible to completely prevent mold from coming back, there is a lot that can be done regarding remediation and take steps to discourage regrowth.

When it comes to dealing with mold damage to your Seminole home, it is important to contact remediation experts who have both the knowledge and the necessary equipment to deal with the outbreak effectively. One particular note of caution is to be sure the company you contact has good health and safety awareness and takes all the right precautions during cleanup.
SERVPRO’s technicians are all IICRC certified, and we make sure all our field staff is adequately trained in the proper precautions to take when dealing with mold, including making sure our teams have the correct personal protective equipment. We closely adhere to the OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) guidelines for safety when containing a mold outbreak, including following their guidelines that each technician is equipped with:
•Chemical resistant gloves to ensure safe handling of any cleaning chemicals and to keep spores from getting onto the skin.
•Eye protection such as goggles to guard eyes against spills or splashes from detergents or other cleaning agents.
•A respirator, so our agents do not breathe in mold spores. The kind of respirator needed varies depending on the extent of the contamination. We provide our people with greater filter respirators for small spaces, half mask models with cartridges for larger spaces, and full face units for cases of extensive damage.
•Protective clothing such as full body suits to keep mold away from the skin and hair.
Wearing the correct kit means SERVPRO’s teams are better equipped to deal with mold and carry out cleaning, dusting, scrubbing and vacuuming actions to remediate the issue.
We also take care to protect your home by setting up containment in the affected area to prevent spores from spreading further, and by establishing specific working areas and routes in and out of your home to keep cross-contamination to a minimum.
Do not let fungal growth damage your home. Our teams are ready with all the right equipment to handle the problem safely, so call SERVPRO of Seminole & Central Gulf Beaches at (727) 391-6212 for help.
