SERVPRO Uses Several Approaches to Protect the Restoration Team as Well as House Occupants

For most people, noticing mold within a property trigger worries because of its detrimental effects on organic materials. Mold can also cause health effects. However, it is possible to address mold at your San Jose property harmlessly by taking various precautions.

You can quickly achieve the desired safety milestones by involving mold removal companies when your San Jose property is infested. For instance, SERVPRO can help you avoid spreading the mold colonies from the areas initially affected to the rest of the structure. Our technicians also take steps to limit any risky contact with mold debris.

Some Standard Safety Measures Include:

  • Using the right PPE
  • Full assessment to ensure comprehensive remediation
  • Setting up containment barriers 

The people handling the mitigation process are directly exposed to mold debris, especially when surfaces are disturbed during cleaning. Using personal protective equipment safeguards against exposure through inhalation or contact through skin or sensitive areas such as the eyes. SERVPRO teams are already equipped with the right PPE, so you do not have to worry about sourcing or selecting the right variety.

The Amount of PPE Needed Varies Depending on the Level and Location of Mold Contamination

  • An N95 respirator is necessary for small, contaminated spaces
  • Full or half-mask respirators with cartridges for significant contaminations
  • Chemical resistant gloves
  • Full bodysuits

Apart from protecting the workers, the occupants who may visit the property during or after remediation need protection from potentially harmful moldy residues. Establishing containment measures before starting remediation is the best way to prevent such exposure. Our SERVPROSERVPRPO teams set up containment barriers using plastic sheets and retractable poles. We also establish negative air pressure in the contained area.

SERVPRO of NE San Jose is one of the mold removal companies that can safely conduct mitigation at your property. Call us at (408) 834-7663. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.
