Don’t wait to remediate when you see mold in your commercial property

9/9/2019 (Permalink)

Removing mold from a property can be an expensive process, but it can cost you more money if you wait to remediate the damage. SERVPRO of Tigard/Tualatin is available 24/7 to respond to your mold or water damage issues so that you can keep your business running. In the case of mold affecting an indoor area after water damage occures, SERVPRO will be able to set up containment areas for the affected area. Doing so will minimize the invasion to your place of business as we handle the mold issue in your commercial space.

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a property. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy.

If you have stagnant water or areas of increased humidity in your commercial space or property, be aware that mold can develop in those conditions. Mold spores thrive on moisture and heat. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to this. Because of this, it's important to try to keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors. Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.

If you're concerned about mold growth in your commercial space, steps you can take to reduce the chance of mold growth is to keep the area well ventilated, dry, and to reduce the humidity of the air.

If your home or business has a water or mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to clean restore the property.
