Mahopac Businesses Stay Open with SERVPRO Mold Remediation

12/22/2019 (Permalink)

Ceiling tiles partially removed for mold remediation in an office. Insulation and air conditioning components are exposed. By working in cooperation with business owners and the staff, sometimes businesses can continue to operate during a commercial mold remediation.

Several Challenges from Commercial Mold Damage in a Mahopac Office

Mold damage smells and looks unappealing. When an office has a colony infestation, it does not get better with time, and instead, continues to spread.

Restoration for commercial mold damage in a Mahopac office requires several levels of expertise from SERVPRO technicians. First, the reason for the mold needs discovery, then the remediation of existing infestation and finally treatment against any further establishment of colonies after the cleanup.

Containment Before Remediation
Mold spores spread quickly, and to inhibit this from occurring, SERVPRO techs put up barriers around the work area. The technicians remove items with evidence of mold growth and determine whether they have the potential for restoration through cleaning or require disposal. If sheetrock and other building materials show signs of infestation, they get removed through a controlled demo tear-out to halt any further spreading. For a light, surface infestation, we attempt to remove the mold growth and preserve the underlying materials.

Standard Cleaning Solutions for Items with Mold
The technicians are certified as Applied Microbial Remediation Specialists AMRT and know the best course of action for any type of mold infestation. We follow the best practices of the IICRC Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification to ensure a successful outcome. Not every object with mold growth is a loss. Through the use of their various antifungal and antimicrobial treatments, we can clean and sanitize many items in the office, such as upholstered chairs in a conference room, saving the business owner the cost of replacing these pieces.

Drying and Cleaning Surfaces with Mold
Mold cannot exist without moisture. The techs dry the areas with colony growth and carefully remove the desiccated matter. Post-drying treating with their antimicrobial solutions assists with limiting any reestablishment before repairs happen.

Odor Control Measures
Mold may have a particular, musty odor that lingers in some cases, especially in porous objects such as furnishings. The techs have access to various types of deodorization and neutralization equipment to render these pungent scents a non-issue. In some cases, they need to apply multiple applications to eradicate odors.

SERVPRO of Putnam County at (845) 228-1090 is ready to handle any size commercial mold damage. The technicians have the knowledge and equipment to make the mold loss to the property, "Like it never even happened."
