Our Skilled Mold Damage Professionals Can Save Your Lake Zurich Business
Don’t Panic! Commercial Mold Damage Remediation in Lake Zurich is Just a Call Away
Although no one looks forward to dealing with mold growth at their Lake Zurich business, relax if you have engaged our mold remediation experts. Following the protocols the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) developed for use in schools and commercial buildings offers a high success rate. It also clarifies that mold spores are always in the environment, but cause concern for the majority of individuals only when they absorb water and begin growth.
Mold Often Signals Its Presence with a Smell
Although it needs moisture, mold damage in Lake Zurich does not need light. Because of this characteristic, a large infestation can hide behind walls or over ceilings. What you may notice is a distinctive musty odor and perhaps some staining on surfaces. Because molds need water pay particular attention to that unpleasant smell if it lingers near a place where you know building materials became wet in the past.
Let the Experts Handle Mold Remediation
If you try to save time, bother, or a few dollars to eradicate mold damage on your own, you are likely to make the situation worse instead of better. DIY remedies often include a diluted bleach solution that does not penetrate deeply enough to kill the organism at the roots. You might notice a short-term lightening of a dark stain, but the water in the bleach solution ironically might be feeding the mold.
Disturbing Mold Colonies Help Them Spread
Without following the EPA protocol, a business owner can unwittingly spread mold by trying to knock off mold colonies. When SERVPRO starts mold remediation, we contain the area with plastic sheeting, sealing the edges of the partition with the action of an air scrubber. Its negative air pressure retains even small particles as we scrape and use soda blasting to remove the colonies, forcing them through HEPA filters that capture debris and then vent the air to the outdoors. Our technicians wear personal protective equipment (PPE) for safety and as another way to prevent tracking debris into unaffected areas.
