Using HEPA Filters for Mold Remediation
Category : Mold Remediation
At BGS Environmental Services, Inc., our professionals use only the best mold remediation equipment on the market. One of our most reliable tools we use for all of our mold remediation jobs is the HEPA vacuum.
What Is A HEPA Vacuum?
A High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) vacuum is used to collect, contain and destroy mold and mold spores during residential and commercial mold removal. The vacuum has a specialized filter that traps 99.97% of all particles that pass through the vacuum. The filter isn’t just your ordinary vacuum filter either; it’s a high-efficiency one that traps even the smallest of mold spores, ensuring that they are completely contained and eliminated from your home.
How HEPA Vacuums Remove Mold
These vacuums pick up particles that are 0.3 microns or larger in size — which includes mold spores. The vacuums work best when the mold-infested space is under negative pressure. Creating negative pressure in a room involves tightly sealing off entrance ways, windows and vents that lead outside or to other rooms. Once this is done, our mold remediation professionals use the HEPA vacuum on non-porous surfaces.
