SERVPRO Mold Remediation is Quick and Efficient in Raleigh Homes  

Mold remediation of your Raleigh home needs professionals like SERVPRO, who have the training, tools, and experience to do the job safely and efficiently. The primary objective of mold remediation is to prevent the release of mold spores, fragments, and dust from surfaces, causing cross-contamination.

SERVPRO techs follow the IICRC S520 guidelines during the mold remediation of your Raleigh home to ensure a high standard of safety and efficacy. We develop a restoration strategy that not only addresses the present contamination but also reduces the chances of future infestations.

Role of Air Filtration Devices in Mold Removal

Air filtration devices (AFDs) are essential in mold removal by capturing airborne mold spores and preventing them from spreading to other areas. SERVPRO mold specialists use HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filters for effective mold remediation, as they can remove particles as small as 0.3 microns with an efficiency of 99.97%.

Apart from using the AFDs, SERVPRO techs also establish proper airflow and exchange rates to minimize spores from spreading to unaffected areas and to ensure the safety of the remediation workers. Techs use negative air pressure, where the air is drawn out of the contaminated area and filtered through HEPA filters before being discharged outside or through other means of air exchange, such as natural ventilation or air scrubbers.

The specific airflow and exchange rates depend on the size of the area being remediated and the extent of the contamination. That said, SERVPRO techs usually carry out a minimum of four air changes per hour.

Vacuum Systems Used During Mold Removal

Apart from the HEPA-equipped vacuum systems, SERVPRO techs use the following types of vacuum systems recommended by the IICRC during mold remediation:

  • High-filtration vacuums
  • Standard wet-dry canister vacuums
  • Exterior-venting vacuum systems
