What are Common Pieces of Equipment Used During Mold Remediation
There are a variety of tools and equipment that are often needed during mold removal and remediation. Common protective gear used during remediation can include:
- Goggles that protect the eyes
- Hair masks
- Disposable gloves and disposable shoe coverings
- Masks that filter out most mold spores
Why Does the Equipment Matter?
Mold spores aren’t visible to the naked eye, but they can still be hazardous. Protective gear helps to ensure the person involved in the mold remediation process remains safe. Wearing improper equipment and then moving the equipment to an area in your home that isn’t affected by mold can actually increase the spread of the spores. For this reason, disposable equipment is often used.
