Commercial Mold Remediation: A Professional Touch

8/6/2018 (Permalink)

Brick and mortar storefronts are a staple of our economy, allowing for local customers to walk in the front door of a neighborhood business for goods or services.

There is great value in being able to have contact with a friendly face in an environment where you have confidence in the employees, and a general sense of trust that they have your best interests at heart.

As a business owner, you’re aware that there are many challenges to be tackled on a daily basis. The last thing you need is a problem to disrupt your work, especially in relation to your place of business.

A common workplace threat that falls under our area of expertise is the potential for mold growth in commercial spaces.

Perhaps you’re familiar with mold issues at home, but your business can be just as at risk. Understanding how to remedy this is important, not just to your customers, but to your livelihood as well.

Commercial mold remediation is a service that SERVPRO is happy to provide to the businesses in Murfreesboro, Rutherford County. It’s just as important for you to know what causes mold as it is to have professional input on any remediation needs.

In this blog, we’ll discuss both how mold growth begins, and also, how mold remediation services can combat potential damage.

How Exactly Does Mold Occur?

Mold growth happens when there is a perfect mixture of conditions – and unfortunately, it can happen far too easily.

All it takes is  a combination of moisture, warmth, and in applicable situations, food – and you could have a serious mold issue in your hands.

Mold in your business will most likely occur in places like bathrooms, basements, kitchens, or anywhere else where there is some kind of moisture.

For example, if an unchecked pipe leak teams up with the summer heat, you could be in for an ugly surprise.

What is Mold Remediation?

Perhaps you’ve already seen mold in your place of business and that’s why you’re here.

Mold remediation is a key service which, when done professionally, can have your business mold-free in no time. This service basically involves cleaning, thorough removal, and mold treatment done throughout your building.

Mold tends to spread if its conditions for growth go untreated. In most extensive cases, mold can even grow quickly through multiple areas – including walls, carpets, and ceilings.

Commercial mold remediation will use special methods, chemicals, and cleaners to remove all mold present and to prevent it from returning.

A Mold Threat in Commercial Buildings

Mold is an issue that can threaten multiple parts of your business, so it’s important to know exactly how to approach it.

It’s vital to bring in a specialist to first asses your mold situation.

Mold is a natural organism which forms whenever the proper conditions are available. While you may initially only notice it in one spot, it’s very common to find that the small damage you’ve identified is just the beginning.

Examining the area with just your eyes may not show the more extensive growth which has spread throughout your building. A professional assessment will take a true account of the areas that have been affected and they will also let you know what needs to be removed or replaced.

A professional assessment will also investigate where the source of the mold is coming from. This is essential because replacing the walls and carpets could be a complete waste if you don’t find the source of the mold.

Getting commercial mold remediation for your business is a sure way to not only eradicate the current issue, but also, to take the proper steps so it doesn’t happen again.

Call the Professionals Every Time

Mold is one of those issues which, when it strikes, can become a huge inconvenience to you.

The most extreme cases can result in the walls and floors of your business needing to be removed and this could require you to close for a period of time.

Taking pride in serving communities, SERVPRO ensures that your mold remediation work is handled promptly and professionally.

If you’ve noticed any current mold issues, or if you have any general questions about how you can keep your business mold free, SERVPRO professionals are here to make sure your business is mold-free, so you can focus on doing what you love instead.
