SERVPRO of San Gabriel is a professional water restoration company, and we specialize in mold remediation, and water mitigation. One strategy we use for drying the common household is by placing machines in the contained area to create conditions that will both filter the air and dehumidify the effected area. The three machines that we most commonly use are Air Movers, Dehumidifiers, and Negative-Air Scrubber.
After mold is physically removed from its source, the air should be cleaned of airborne mold spores using HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) air scrubbers and air exchange (i.e. replacing dirty moldy air with clean fresh air through simple ventilation or more sophisticated negative air controls for bigger jobs). Since mold excels in humid, damp areas, we will lower the humidity level of the effected area with the dehumidifier, while the Air Mover is constantly blowing at the wet materials, so that the water molecules will be released into the air, to be sucked in by the dehumidifier. The air-scrubber is to 'scrub' the air. It will filter through all the mold spores and other pollutants that may still be in the air.
