Personal Protective Equipment


Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) will be worn by our crews for various reasons. OSHA online states “Personal protective equipment, commonly referred to as "PPE", is equipment worn to minimize exposure to serious workplace injuries and illnesses. These injuries and illnesses may result from contact with chemical, radiological, physical, electrical, mechanical, or other workplace hazards. Personal protective equipment may include items such as gloves, safety glasses and shoes, earplugs or muffs, hard hats, respirators, or coveralls, vests and full body suits.”

What Mold Can Do

Mold Indoors

Inside, mold spores in excess can cause issues. If mold spores make it inside your home, they tend to find wet areas and will reproduce there. There are microbial spore counts everywhere you go, but if those counts are high enough it could spell disaster. Aside from possible negative health effects, mold could weaken your walls, ceilings, floors, and structure.

You and Mold

How Mold Affects You

According to the Center for Disease Control, mold will affect everyone in different ways. Some more or less severe than others. No matter who, though, mold is a problem that needs to be dealt with as soon as it is presented as an issue. SERVPRO of Chattooga, Dade, and West Walker Counties is trained to help you if you find yourself dealing with mold. We are trained and certified through The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC).

Mold- Trenton GA

Growing Problem

This job, which at first glance looks to be a relatively small mold job, turned out to be the whole basement area. Why? A small leak can raise humidity levels in the home to the point where mold growth occurs in areas thought to be unaffected.

Remediating the entire floor of a building can be a daunting task when the customers insist on living in the home while services are being performed. But, through careful planning and execution, it can be done.

Black Beneath The Dishwasher

When this homeowner walked into the kitchen, water was seeping up thru the mortar of the ceramic tiles. The homeowner did not know how long this had been happening so SERVPRO was immediately called! When the tile was pulled it revealed what you see in the picture. This was the result of a dishwasher leak the homeowner did not notice until it resulted in the picture you see here.

Air Scrubbers

Moving Bad Air

One of the many questions we get while performing jobs is why we sometimes use air filtration equipment. When handling demolition, proper air filtration helps control dust and debris stirred up during demolition that can cause health effects on people and pets. According to a Pro Construction Guide article, even something as simple as normal construction dust could carry Aspergillosis- an airborne sickness that causes fever and coughing up blood (Mayo Clinic). The above photo is an air mover with an HVAC air filter to illustrate how dirty a job area can be!

Stripping Away The Mold

Bare Minimum

This infestation of mold was so severe that the drywall and flooring had to be taken down! We stripped this spot in a house full of the nasty mold, and the affected areas were sealed and cleaned in no time. We are always ready to help here at SERVPRO to ensure your disaster feels "Like it never even happened."

Mold Under House

Underside Growth

This is the result of a long-existing leak originating from a utility room clothes washer. The utility room bordered a kitchen that sat atop the basement where this photo was taken. The leak first affected the kitchen cabinets. Then, over time mold growth began under the cabinet both on the floor of the kitchen and on the ceiling of the basement level below.

Mold Behind Wall

Mold Indoors

Mold, whether active or inactive, becomes a threat whenever there is an unregulated flow of water within the home. Mold spores need a moist surface to thrive on. Unsecured pipes, leaky roofs, or even condensing water vapors can create these areas where mold can easily grow. Condensing humidity in your attic can lead to serious mold growth that can spread to everywhere in your home.
