Common Steps for Remediation of Commercial Mold Damage in Arizona City Properties
How our SERVPRO Team Handles Mold Damage and Remediation in Arizona City
When signs of commercial mold damage are ignored, the problem continues to get worse until it gets addressed. Once established colonies spread quickly across surfaces.
SERVPRO techs have extensive training in handling commercial mold damage in Arizona City properties. Scoping is one of the first actions to determine all areas with mold colonies.
Limiting the Spread of Spores
The techs set up containment and, in some cases, negative air chambers to port airborne mold spores offsite. When mold grows on surfaces such as sheetrock or ceiling tiles, there is no restoration potential, and it requires removal. With their general contractor license #310261, they have the skills and knowledge to perform tear-outs as needed.
Diagnosing the Reason
When inspecting the property, the techs determine the reason for the establishment for the mold and the appropriate actions that should happen to halt the conditions making the environment favorable for mold growth. Common causes are poor ventilation and leaks in the structure or plumbing system.
Drying and Proactive Treatments
The first step in the remediation of mold colonies is the drying of areas where the establishment of infestations has occurred. The techs sometimes tent over the space and concentrate the airflow over the colonies. Once the areas dry, the techs use either manual methods such as scraping the remaining dried matter. In cases where the mold proves challenging to lift off, applications such as soda blasting remove the mold effectively without marring surfaces.
Before rebuilding with new sheetrock and ceiling tiles, SERVPRO technicians coat the framework with their professional-grade antimicrobial cleaners and sealant. This action inhibits the potential for re-establishment of mold from opportunistic spores, which are always present both indoors and outdoors, just waiting for the right conditions to germinate.
Measures for Air Quality
If necessary, the techs can inspect and clean the ductwork. This gives the property a clean start after the completion of mold remediation.
