Mold is pervasive in nature and, if left unchecked, can result in damage to your business property. It occurs where flooding or dampness exists. Humidity, pipe leaks, standing rain water, and condensation can all lead to the growth of mold. Any wet or damp area must be thoroughly dried, or the likelihood of mold and fungus appearing exists. Mold must be properly treated by a professional, otherwise it becomes hazardous to human health and can cause respiratory problems and allergic reactions. When property damage and health hazards combine as a result of a mold infestation, it’s not good for business. Call the Pros for prompt service and thorough cleanup.
Causes of Mold
Fungi is the main cause of mold and can be found anywhere dampness is present. Fungi reproduce by means of airborne spores, and vary according to air temperature, the level of dampness, and the amount of concentration of impurities present. When mold spores come into contact with a damp or wet surface, they grow. At this point, unless there is professional intervention, the atmosphere becomes dangerously saturated.
Mold can also be caused as a result of water damage from leaky roofs, flooding and storms, indoor plumbing issues such as overflowing sinks or toilets, or improper or insufficient ventilation of concrete materials. Mildew grows in basements where vapor barriers are not present. Even dirty floors encourage fungus growth.
The Water Removal Pros take the following steps to remediate mold infestations from a commercial property:
- Assess – Given mold’s pervasive nature, mold eruptions are common in buildings where dampness and moisture occur for any reason—even from humidity. The first step in the Water Removal Pros mold remediation process is to conduct a preliminary assessment to ascertain the extent of the mold infestation and the potential for mold to spread to other parts of your business property.
- Inspect – A thorough mold inspection is critical to the remediation process. Our mold remediation professionals perform a detailed onsite examination to test for the presence of mold, targeting areas with moisture problems and also those with some amount of humidity or dampness. In the course of their inspection our inspectors will: move furniture and equipment; check window panes, ventilation ducts, and wall cavities for fungus growth; and even check behind walls where possible for hidden mold. Where mold is detected, our Pos next decide the best type and level of mold remediation that is needed. By correctly identifying the contagion level (identified as levels I-IV), we are able to plan the most effective course of remediation and protective steps.
- Remediate – The first step in solving a mold problem is to go right to the source of dampness or humidity and eliminate it. Our Pros take whatever step is necessary to most effectively stop the growth of additional mold. This could include improving ventilation to the affected area, insulating walls, and placing dehumidifiers to extract dampness.
After fixing humidity problems, our technicians work on cleaning affected areas. Our professional mold remediation cleaning process includes using dry fog in combination with an EPA-approved chemical to kill mildew and protect the atmosphere. These steps help eliminate associated odors and prevent further mold growth.
