Have you found Mold in Your Business, Learn Your Options?

6/21/2019 (Permalink)

Mold is something you don't want to tackle on your own. Our team is available 24/7 to assist with mold remediation services.

Nothing is standard when it comes to mold damage remediation since different areas have different contamination levels. If it is a small section of your business premises that have contamination, we must contain the area to ensure the spores do not disperse to uncontaminated areas. If air vents are supplying and returning from the site, we must block them. Putting the site under negative pressure can also limit the movement of spores in your business. 

The type of material or surface the mold is growing on determines the remediation technique we use to remove the mold contamination from your business. If our SERVPRO technicians notice there is active mold on porous items such as insulation, carpeting, fabrics, and drywall, we have to remove the material from the site. If carpets and some of your upholstered furniture are not extremely contaminated, we may perform steam cleaning with the aim of cleaning them. We do not perform wet vacuuming on porous items since some mold fragments can remain within the item. The type of material or surface the mold is growing on determines the mold damage remediation technique we use to remove the contamination. We can damp-wipe nonporous materials such as metals, glass, and plastics using a disinfectant. If the mold is not firmly attached to such items, we can clean them using HEPA vacuuming. Our SERVPRO team can scrub wooden floors and use a wood floor cleaner when cleaning wooden floors. Some of the methods we use when cleaning semi-porous materials such as concrete and wood include wire brushing, damp wiping, and sanding. Wood that has undergone rotting weakens and should be removed and replaced. Once we complete cleaning, we give the mold spores time to settle before we can repeat the cleaning process. Also, cleaning takes place from the upper parts of a structure towards its bottom parts.
