Commercial Mold Damage Pearl River – Avoiding Repeat Mold Contamination

Mold contamination can affect building materials, commercial products, equipment, and even employee health at Pearl River buildings. Once mold sets in, it can be difficult to remove unless specific steps are taken to remove the source, control the humidity level, and clean the area. Mold is everywhere; however, we can control mold, and further contamination avoided.

SERVPRO has been providing commercial mold damage mitigation and restoration in the Pearl River area since 1999. We also provide water damage and storm damage restoration services. Our team is highly trained. We follow a tried and true protocol for treating mold to meet client needs and returning their businesses and homes to their original condition, whenever possible.

Mold Removal

Once mold contamination has affected an area of your business, it is essential to act quickly to limit the damage to the structure, to your contents and employee health. SERVPRO can establish negative pressure areas and block all intakes to the HVAC system to avoid spreading the mold further within the building space. We can clean all hard surfaces. Porous surfaces cannot always be cleaned. Some non-salvageable items must be removed and disposed of following mold remediation guidelines. Depending on the level of contamination, this can include drywall, fabrics, carpeting, insulation, and the contents in the contaminated area.

Cleaning disturbs mold spores. SERVPRO establishes a negative pressure area in the rooms to be cleaned to prevent the further spread of mold spores. We clean from the top down and in the direction of the airflow. This approach ensures the spores and dust settle to the floor.

Preventing Repeat Mold Contamination

After cleaning the area, restoration can begin. Replace all of the non-porous items. However, mold loves high humidity and moisture. Eliminating these conditions can prevent further contamination of cleaned areas. If there is a source of moisture, either remove it or control it to reduce the contribution of humidity. Maintain humidity at 45% or lower using AC and dehumidifiers.

Your employees should find the indoor air quality much improved, and your commercial space could avoid mold contamination in the future.
