What Can Business Owners Expect From Mold Remediation?
No Hype -- SERVPRO Offers a Solid Plan to Businesses Needing Mold Remediation in San Jose.
Mold damage in commercial property spaces can make San Jose specialty food grocery owners nervous and embarrassed. Relax a bit by knowing that mold growth hotspots do not mean your cleaning crew is not doing its job. Mold damage also rarely links to carelessness in stock rotation or other inventory decisions. Problematic mold growth results from one thing -- excessive moisture. We can help find, mitigate, and remediate the water damage. We are also mold remediation experts, able to halt the current mold proliferation and inhibit future growth.
Can Remediators Promise to Remove Mold Entirely?
We are precise in our services' characterization, offering mold remediation for San Jose commercial spaces, not mold elimination. Elimination of all active mold growth and spores is not attainable without crushing and ongoing expense. Molds are everywhere in both the outdoor and indoor environments. Most of the time, mold spores cause little concern because they remain dry. Water is essential for mold growth, so if we can help you manage the moisture, the mold problem slows and stops.
How Do Mold Remediators Reach Their Goals?
SERVPRO mold remediation technicians follow the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) protocol for schools and commercial buildings.
- Locate the Mold
We rely on business owners to direct us to the visible outbreak or the characteristic musty smell of multiplying mold. Testing is available, but often unnecessary and expensive.
- Contain the Mold
Our technicians wrap the affected area in 1.6 mil polyethylene, using plastic conduit to build partitions if needed. SERVPRO negative pressure air scrubbers join the configuration in many cases, sealing off the enclosure and clearing the air of airborne mold residues by forcing air through HEPA filters.
- Remove the Mold
Scraping and brushing mechanically remove the bulk of the mold off non-porous surfaces. Soda or dry ice blasting can remove surface mold and incapacitate the hyphae inside porous materials, avoiding the disruption of removing the building materials.
- Clean Up and Appropriate Disposal
The mold organisms, any porous materials we cannot save, and residues from floors and surfaces are double bagged and disposed of according to local hazardous waste rules.
- Disinfect and Seal Affected Surfaces
EPA-registered antimicrobials inhibit the rebound of mold growth. Proprietary antimicrobial coating can halt further mold development and prepare surfaces for repainting.
