How to Keep Your Employees Safe During Mold Removal

You've made a wise decision to call a commercial mold remediation team to handle mold removal at your business in Las Vegas, NV. Since you couldn't tell how extensive the problem was, you knew that a professional service would be your best bet for getting every last bit of mold removed. Now you wonder how to continue running your business during the mold cleanup process. Here are three ways that the professionals will protect you.

1. Air Filtration
As the team cleans, they will use specialized vacuums and "air scrubbers" to prevent mold spores from spreading throughout the building. Everything will be vented outside, away from your offices.

2. Containment Chambers
Professional mold removal involves the use of containment chambers. These chambers are most often created by hanging up plastic sheeting to seal off the area that is being cleaned from the rest of the building. A/C units, heating, and fans will be turned off, and vents and doors will be sealed. Depending on the size and severity of the mold growth, negative air pressure and an antechamber for changing out of PPE may also be used to fully contain the mold.

3. Remediation Strategies
The first step to remediating mold is to ensure that the environment that causes the mold growth has been addressed. If this is a leak from a pipe or a roof, previous flood damage, or a poorly ventilated space, these issues must be handled first. There's no merit to cleaning mold if the cause of it hasn't been managed. Then, visible mold types, such as black mold, will undergo antibacterial and antimicrobial cleaning procedures to ensure that no pockets of mold remain behind to regrow. If needed, certain materials such as carpets and drywall will be removed and replaced. Other items can be cleaned and restored.
A professional mold removal team will take every precaution to protect you and your staff from mold exposure during the cleaning process. Always follow their advice for the best outcome.
