Though mold is naturally occurring both indoors and out, discovering its presence is no less disconcerting. Mold can have disastrous health and structural effects when left unaddressed. It can cause allergies and symptoms in healthy people and worsen symptoms of those with pre-existing conditions, like asthma. Mold can also begin to deteriorate building materials like drywall and insulation, if left unaddressed for longer periods of time. There’s also the unsightly vision of mold growth and its accompanying familiar odor. If you suspect or have discovered mold growth in your commercial business, the experts at Kill Mold can perform your commercial mold remediation with minimal downtime and complete results.
Mold is a natural fungus that ranges in color and requires moisture to survive. It can grow on virtually any surface or material including wood, paper, carpet and food. They reproduce by spores throughout the air which causes mold growth. Mold can be hard to uncover as it requires a water source to thrive and those sources are typically hidden behind walls and ceilings. Common commercial water and mold sources include damaged pipes, building foundation issues like framing or drainage systems, roof leaks and sprinkler systems.
Though each situation is unique, there is a general procedure that will be used as a guideline.
Locating the mold and water source are the most important steps as mold cannot grow when the source is contained. Once the source has been determined, the problem should be repaired and the damage can be assessed.
Upon assessment, it will become evident what areas are contaminated and to what areas the mold has spread to. Contaminated areas will be isolated and contained to prevent further spread. Mold spores will be captured from the air and filtered and scrubbed.
Mold affected materials will be removed and disposed of safely.
All non-porous materials and wood surfaces must be cleaned thoroughly and sanitized. Depending on the levels of severity, different cleaning techniques will be employed to comply with standards. Cleaned materials will be left to thoroughly dry.
Structural materials will be repaired and rebuilt to restore your commercial business facility. If mold has developed in your commercial business facility, the experts at Kill Mold can quickly and efficiently remediate the situation to return you back to normal operations with minimal downtime. We understand the importance of safeguarding the health of you and your employees and ensuring your business structure’s integrity is intact.
