Five Pieces of PPE used in Remediation

For a homeowner with a remediation project ,it’s important to know what safety equipment to wear when in the proximity of the contaminated space during the remediation process. Fortunately, your local SERVPRO of Fullerton remediation professionals can show you the tools and equipment they expect to use. Here are five things you may see, from face masks to shoe covers.

  1. Gloves-When working in areas of mold damage, gloves should be worn at all times. This will help prevent skin contact with the mold spores. 
  2. Coveralls- These suits are worn over regular clothing and can be removed when leaving the contaminated area to prevent the spread of spores.
  3. Masks-Professionals will also often wear face masks when working with mold. This helps prevent breathing in spores, which can lead to some health issues.
  4. Goggles-Goggles are also commonly worn to help prevent mold spores, dust, and other debris from getting into the workers' eye.
  5. Shoe Covers-Shoe covers are also often utilized during mold remediation. Similar to coveralls, they are worn over the shoes while in the contaminated area and then removed when the worker leaves the area in order to prevent the spreading of spores.
