Mold Remediation by SERVPRO Halts Property Deterioration

When excessive moisture accumulates on building materials, mold growth often occurs, predominantly if the problem remains undiscovered or unaddressed. This could be due to a water damage incident. Delayed maintenance greatly contributes to moisture issues in commercial buildings. Therefore, a routine inspection of your Newington premises is essential in minimizing mold growth.

Still, you could suffer mold damage in your Newington business premises. The losses due to business interruption and remediation costs could add up if you do not have the situation under control. SERVPRO has a team of experts equipped to handle any size of mold issue you might be experiencing.

Moisture Sources

  • Plumbing leaks
  • HVAC systems
  • Poorly maintained drain pans
  • Roof leaks

Handling Mold Damage

Mold thrives where there is moisture and food source. Building materials such as sheetrock, carpeting, and ceiling tiles serve as attractive food sources for mold in commercial spaces. Given enough time, mold slowly destroys the things it grows on. However, our technicians may help prevent damage to building materials and furnishings by controlling moisture.

Steps in Controlling Mold

  • Containing areas with mold
  • Removing contaminated materials
  • Cleaning up moldy residues

Checking and repairing any water leaks inhibits any more water intrusion. Also, we dry wet areas and reduce the humidity level. Before handling any mold-infested materials, SERVPRO technicians mitigate the spread of spores by establishing containment. This helps contain the residues in the affected area.

As we clean, we remove all damaged materials to ease the process. Different methods can then be applied to clean. For example, a HEPA vacuum can remove loose mold fragments. Also, a wire brush is ideal for getting rid of mold on semi-porous materials.

SERVPRO of Newington / Central Hartford specializes in mold removal and can assist with ridding your property of any mold damage, "Like it never even happened." Also, our team can provide advice on how to prevent such build-up in the future. Call us at (860) 667-9191.
