The Gear to Get Mold Out

4/17/2018 (Permalink)

No matter how it got there, the mold in your Layton, UT, has only one place left to go: outside. However, purging it from your building is not always an easy task. Out of all the steps involved in a mold cleanup, using the right equipment to protect yourself from hazardous toxins is key. Sometimes, a professional can take that burden off your shoulders, but even he or she must first wear the following gear:


1. Hair Covers


Because contact with mold can result in a number of risks, the mold pros typically cover themselves from head to toe. This includes proper head coverage. If a hood is not part of the picture, a hair cover may be necessary. These look like shower caps and can help shield those subtle mold spores floating around.


2. Disposable Gloves


Gloves play another important part in the mold cleanup process. Mold growth can affect any vulnerable surface in your building, so it is important that you protect your hands, too. Gloves come in a number of materials, such as vinyl, latex, and synthetic rubber. It is essential that your gloves fit properly, as well; any wiggle room could allow spores to trickle in. In addition, be sure to leave the gloves at the door when coming and going, since carrying them with you into other parts of the building could lead to further spreading.


3. Protective Suits


The primary protective equipment you'll want to use involves the appropriate suit. Some experts recommend wearing Tyvek suits over normal clothing. Safety goggles and respirators may also be necessary components, depending on the situation. Whatever clothing you choose, be sure to follow the same procedures as with hair covers and gloves and leave the suit in the workspace only.

Your commercial building deserves only the best maintenance and mold protection. In the process, don't forget to protect yourself as well. Part of this preventative step includes wearing the right gear for the job.
