Chicago Homeowners Trust SERVPRO with Mold Remediation

Hiring experts like SERVPRO for mold remediation of your Chicago home is crucial to safely and effectively restore the damage. Our IICRC-certified mold specialists have the training, tools, and knowledge that ensures your home is restored to preloss conditions as quickly as possible. 

SERVPRO techs are very careful during the mold remediation of your Chicago home to avoid the spread of mold fragments and spores to unaffected parts of the property. We use unique containment systems and engineering controls that minimize the aerosolization of the mold and significantly reduce the chance of cross-contamination. 

Controlling the Airflow During Mold Removal 

SERVPRO techs establish negative air pressure within the containment regions to prevent the air from taking the aerosolized mold spores to unaffected building areas. However, techs use air exchanges to dilute airborne fungal concentration, reduce worker exposure, and facilitate the clean-up effort. SERVPRO restorers always ensure the airflow direction is clean to contaminated areas. 

Techs perform a minimum of four air exchanges per hour between the contaminated and uncontaminated areas per the IICRC S520 guidelines. Understanding the science behind airflow allows SERVPRO techs to prevent the spread of mold spores and carry out the remediation safely. 

Role of HEPA Vacuums 

HEPA vacuum systems have an essential role to play in the mold removal process. These systems are fitted in the negative air machines that maintain a lower pressure within the containment areas. The HEPA vacuum can remove airborne particles greater than 0.3 microns with an efficiency of 99.97%. Using the HEPA vacuum systems, SERVPRO techs can ensure:

  • Fungal spores and fragments are retained within the containment area.
  • Visible mold growth is safely and quickly removed from surfaces. 
  • Improved air quality for the technicians and the occupants.
