Raleigh Trusts SERVPRO with Mold Remediation

The Role of Negative Air Pressure in Mold Abatement

One of the most critical aspects of professional mold remediation in your Raleigh home is preventing the spread of airborne spores. Professionals like SERVPRO are experts at establishing containment barriers that prevent the spread of mold spores during the remediation process.     

SERVPRO techs establish negative air pressure during the mold remediation in your Raleigh home using equipment called the negative air machines (NAMs). The goal is to establish a pressure differential between the affected and unaffected areas of the building. The negative pressure inside the contaminated area allows techs to control the airflow into and from the area to undamaged parts of the structure.   

Air Moving Devices for Mold Damage Restoration

The air moving devices that SERVPRO techs use in Mold Remediation in Raleigh are fitted with filters to remove dust, mold spores, and other microbial particles from the air leaving the affected area. These devices are often called air filtration devices or AFDs and contain the following three filters-

  • Primary filter
  • Secondary filter, and
  • HEPA filter

As the air moves progressively through primary and secondary filters as it leaves the containment area, larger particles and dust get trapped. The HEPA filter is the final barrier that traps the microscopic spores and smaller fungal fragments. 

SERVPRO techs ensure that filters used in the AFDs are periodically checked for any integrity breaches and installed according to the manufacturer's instructions. In most situations, the air from the HEPA AFD is exhausted outside the building to minimize the chances of cross-contamination. 

Mold damage can spread if you are not proactive in its mitigation. Call SERVPRO of East Raleigh / Zebulon at (919) 250-0455, and we can help to remove the infestations safely.
