We Get You Back In Business In Lake Worth After A Mold Disaster
Commercial Mold Damage Started in the Breakroom in Lake Worth Office
The one factor you can count on with commercial mold damage is that it will not get better on its own. As long as conditions remain favorable for growth, the infestation can continue to spread, creating an unhealthy environment for both customers and employees.
When a Lake Worth business discovered commercial mold damage in their breakroom in the vicinity of a slow leak they had repaired, the first call was to SERVPRO.
Locating Mold Colonies
When mold is visible, there is rarely a single colony but rather more behind the scenes. Often within wall cavities, under flooring and anywhere it is dark, damp with someone organic to consume. That is why mold spreads rapidly across sheetrock, wood framing, and paperwork.
Isolate the Mold
During mold remediation, the technicians identify all areas that need treatment for mold and contain them through the use of physical barriers over doorways and vents as well as negative air pressure chambers. This action assists in limiting any further spread of airborne spores.
Removal of Unrestorable Materials
When sheetrock and porous items have mold, they require disposal as a loss. SERVPRO technicians ensure they have the approval of either the property owner or authorized party for the remediation before anything gets placed in plastic bags and safely disposed of at the site.
Creating an Inhospitable Environment for Mold
Mold does not thrive when the ambient humidity levels are below 45%. Drying is a critical element in the abatement of the infestation. The technicians use a combination of air movers and dehumidifiers in the contained space to bring down the air moisture levels rapidly and effectively dry out the colonies. Air scrubbers run throughout the process to capture any airborne spores in their HEPA filtration.
Final Abatement and Cleaning of the Office
Before the office can reopen for business, all signs of the mold damage infestation need to be gone. The technicians use various methods for removal of the dried colonies, including gentle hand scraping off surfaces. For larger growth areas or hard-to-remove residues, soda blasting removes the mold without marring surfaces. The final application of antimicrobial cleaners inhibits the return of the problem.
