Containment and HEPA Filtration in Mold Remediation

Containment and HEPA Filtration in Mold Remediation

Gladhill Service’s Mold Remediation Process is customized to meet the specific moisture and ventilation issues of each home. The process begins with an inspection that we use to develop a strategy, and (in many cases) it ends with a lab-tested air sample at the completion of the job.

However, one of the most important steps in the Mold Remediation Process is containment and HEPA filtration. If proper action isn’t taken to prevent the spread of mold throughout the cleaning process, the mold problem could recur or even get worse.

To understand why containment and HEPA are important, we have to look at how mold spreads and some of the techniques that Mold Remediation professionals use to prevent it.

Symptoms of Mold Sickness

As an irritant, symptoms from mold sickness are comparable to that of the common cold or even an allergy. Some of the symptoms experienced may be itchy or watery eyes, sneezing, itchy skin, and headache. If you notice these symptoms after entering a building repeatedly, the structure may have an issue with mold. Prolonged exposure to mold may cause symptoms to worsen. You may begin to experience constant headaches, weight loss, diarrhea, and vomiting. More serious effects caused from mold might be chronic fatigue, bronchitis and sinus infections along with short-term memory loss. If you experience any of these symptoms, see your physician immediately.

Are you exposed to mold?

Mold is typically hidden deep inside walls or floors. Mold can be found in basements, HVAC ducts and behind cabinets. Mold results from moisture becoming trapped in these areas so it's best to get a professional inspection from Gladhill Services.
