Mold Remediation

Protective Gear for Mold Remediation

Mold can quickly multiply and pose health risks, especially indoors, where it can produce toxins and cause infections. Workers at remediation companies face significant risks, particularly from inhaling mold spores. Those with weakened immune systems, allergies, or respiratory conditions are most vulnerable. Symptoms of mold exposure can range from eye irritation to severe lung inflammation.

Choosing the Right Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

For small-area mold cleanup, recommended protective gear includes non-vented goggles, long rubber gloves, disposable coveralls, and a respirator. Larger-scale remediation requires additional precautions, such as full-body coveralls and a higher-grade respirator. Disposable PPE is essential for containing mold spores and preventing cross-contamination.

Preventing Mold Growth

Prevention is the most cost-effective approach to mold remediation. Here are six tips to prevent mold growth:

Immediate Cleanup of Water Spills

Mold can colonize within 24 hours in the right conditions, so swift cleanup is crucial.

Clear Air Conditioning Drains

Clogged drains can lead to moisture buildup and mold growth.

Manage Humidity Levels

Keep humidity below 60% to discourage mold growth, especially in humid climates like Colorado.

Ensure Air Circulation.

Open windows and use fans to maintain airflow and prevent stagnant air.

 

Regular Roof & Gutter Maintenance

Snow and debris buildup can lead to water intrusion and mold growth, so keep gutters and roofs clean.

Use Bathroom Fans

Running a fan during showers helps to reduce moisture buildup and prevent mold growth in bathrooms.
