We Get You Back In Business In Tallahassee After Mold Damage Strikes
Remediating Commercial Mold Damage in a Tallahassee Office
Florida business owners are well aware of the risks of mold proliferation in their establishments. Still, they may be surprised to know that as much as 30% of new and remodeled buildings can have their indoor air quality affected by mold growth. While regular inspections and cleaning can stave off most mold growth, water damage and other factors can allow these microbes to thrive regardless. All it takes for mold to spread is appropriate amounts of humidity, adequate temperatures, and the presence of organic material to eat.
If your Tallahassee office needs commercial mold damage remediation from professional disaster cleanup experts, you can count on SERVPRO to answer the call quickly. These experienced professionals follow a consistent set of standards for remediating mold in commercial facilities without spreading it to other parts of your office. SERVPRO is available 24/7 for your cleanup needs because disasters do not happen on a regular 9-to-5 schedule.
Minimizing Mold Risk in Your Office
- Stay vigilant. Mold often grows in places where it cannot be easily seen, so make sure to have your property regularly inspected, including in crawl spaces, server rooms, or rarely-used storage areas. Look for fuzzy stains, musty smells, or marks on carpeting.
- Repair plumbing ASAP. If you have any leakage, loose seals, or other maladies affecting your building, make sure to address them immediately to prevent mold growth.
- Keep humidity stable. Consider installing dehumidifiers or running fans to keep mold at bay. Keeping relative humidity in your facilities between 30% and 50% lowers the risk of proliferation.
- Clear out the vents. HVAC systems are a common area where mold can hide and spread. Worse still, if the vents are not inspected regularly, mold can spread throughout the building.
If you notice any of the signs of mold growth in your facilities, call restoration professionals immediately.
SERVPRO's Mold Remediation Process
After establishing containment and removing unsalvageable materials affected by mold damage, technicians can work on cleaning up surfaces and removing spores from the air with HEPA-filter vacuums that can capture particles as small as 0.3 microns--a fraction of the size of a 40-micron human hair.
Technicians minimize the risk of spores spreading or settling on new surfaces by cleaning them in the direction of the airflow toward negative-pressure machines. Multiple rounds of disinfection may be necessary to remove spores before drying with air movers and dehumidifiers can begin.
SERVPRO of Central Tallahassee can ensure that your facility looks, "Like it never even happened." If you need rapid cleanup for your business, call (850) 765-5706 today.
