Commercial Mold Damage in Coram: Prevention and Treatment

Commercial mold damage can bring a company to a grinding halt. Employees do not want to work around it, and customers may consider the business "unclean" if mold is visible on walls, ceilings, or other areas.

When commercial mold damage happens in Coram's business properties, it is almost always the result of another issue that requires addressing. Knowing the early signs of a mold infestation can save a business the cost of remediation, and it is worth it for property owners to learn the common areas and reasons for colony growth and spreading.

Schedule Regular Inspections
A monthly walk-through of the property is a large part of catching problems with the plumbing or leaks, which are frequent causes of mold. Repairing a slow leak early on can halt the progress of an infestation. Roof and gutters are also culprits, if your commercial property has attic storage - it should regularly undergo inspection to catch leaks. Properties with a basement should look for signs of elevated moisture or hydrostatic water issues, causing the cement to efflorescence or brickwork to flake. Another sign to look out for involves your nose and a musty odor that does not go away.

When Mold is Found or Suspected
Fighting back against a mold infestation is never a DIY project. SERVPRO technicians scope the property and use moisture detection equipment to find hidden pockets of moisture behind walls and other hard to see areas. When they find mold, they also routinely inspect and clean the ductwork after remediation efforts complete.

The Mold Remediation Process
Once SERVPRO techs discover mold, they contain the work area, including the vents, to inhibit any further spread of spores. Then they measure the interior humidity and lower them below sustainable levels to the mold existence. The dried colonies get removed by hand or in cases of extensive coverage that requires removal; they use methods such as soda blasting. They use HEPA-fitted vacuums to pick up the debris. Lastly, they use antimicrobial cleaning agents and sealants as needed to deter any return of the mold to the abated areas.
