Inspection and Damage Assessment

Mold containment

Our team will follow various containment procedures to prevent the spread of mold and isolate the contaminated area with physical barriers and negative air pressure to keep the mold spores from spreading during the cleanup process.

Air Filtration Equipment

SERVPRO certified professionals utilize powerful air scrubbers and HEPA vacuums to prevent the spread of these mold spores while the mold remediation is in progress. The specialized filtration equipment captures microscopic mold spores out of the air.
