Is All That Equipment Really Necessary When Removing Mold from My Thomasville Home?

3/24/2020 (Permalink)

Microbial contamination is a broad descriptor that refers to a wide variety of microorganisms including mold, bacteria, and viruses.  This contamination can come from many sources such as a flooded building, a sewage backup or even a simple water leak.  Mold contamination is the most common call we receive when discussing microbial contamination. 

One of the more common questions we are asked when completing mold remediation is ‘is all that really necessary?’  Many Thomasville home and business owners think bleach and a sponge is all they need to clean up a mold problem.  The reality is in most instances bleach only kills the surface mold and it will continue to grow and spread without proper remediation which includes all the right equipment. 

Full PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) is required for not only the health and safety of our employees but to help prevent cross contamination thus keeping your property and family safe.  PPE equipment used during mold remediation includes respirators, goggles, gloves full Tyvek suits, and antimicrobial cleaning solutions.

So, instead of worrying if you cleaned your mold damage properly contact the experts at SERVPRO of Lexington/Thomasville.  Our highly trained team of professionals are IICRC certified experts in mold remediation.  Give us a call at 336-224-2565 to schedule your appointment and get your free estimate today!
