Commercial Mold Damage

Where there's moisture, there's the risk of mold. Mold infestations and the ensuing hazardous air quality can be caused by various situations, including water leaks, high humidity, blocked gutters, or even inadequate roof ventilation. If you suspect mold, call Emergency Mitigation Services right away. Our professionally trained technicians will contain the mold and mitigate the damages to keep you and your employees breathing easy.


Mold Crisis & Damage Overview

Commercial Mold Crisis and Damage Overview

Toxic mold can develop and bloom within 48 hours of exposure to moisture, often in locations where you can’t see it. Mold will literally grow on any damp surface it can find; walls, carpets, ceiling tiles, and insulation are all common locations. It doesn’t matter where the water comes from; burst or leaking pipes, blocked gutters, inadequate roof ventilation, and even ductwork condensation can all be the source of a mold problem.

A mold infestation poses a risk to your health, your employees, and anyone who spends time in your building. Mold spores circulating in the air cause headaches, respiratory issues, skin irritations, and even memory loss. Buildings also suffer since mold can cause structural elements to corrode.

Removal vs. Remediation

Every building contains a "natural" amount of non-toxic mold. Because mold spores are everywhere, it's impossible to remove 100% of the mold from any building. The problem occurs when levels of toxic mold get out of hand. When this happens, it's important to remove all contaminated surfaces and then remediate the moisture's origins that contributed to mold growth. If the moisture source is not effectively remediated or all the contaminated surfaces are not removed, the mold will return.

Mold Disaster Tips

Commercial Mold Removal and Remediation Services

There are over 100,000 varieties of mold spores and fungus in the world – but not every specimen is dangerous. Until you know what kind of mold is in your building, stay out of the affected areas, turn off the HVAC, and do the following:

  • Wear a mask while in the contaminated building.
  • Use rubber gloves to remove any non-contaminated business documents.
  • Put plastic over air registers.
  • Don’t try to clean mold with bleach – it doesn’t kill it!
  • Stay calm. The mold may be black, but is it the dreaded Black Mold? Not necessarily. Many molds are black, but the most well-known is the toxic Stachybotrys chartarum. The only way to tell if your mold is toxic is with a test.

Don’t risk it. Call EMS for commercial mold removal and remediation services today.
