Commercial Mold Damage

A mold infestation caused by leaks, high humidity, blocked gutters or inadequate roof ventilation can result in hazardous air quality. Emergency Mitigation Services can contain and mitigate the damage caused by toxic mold so you and your employees can breathe easy.

 

Mold Crisis & Damage Overview

In moist conditions, mold can develop and grow within 48 hours – often where you can’t see it. Mold will grow on any damp surface: In walls, under carpets, in ceiling tiles, and even in insulation. Water infiltration from many sources – including burst or leaking pipes, blocked gutters, inadequate roof ventilation or even ductwork condensation – can all contribute to a mold problem.

A mold infestation can pose a serious risk to the health of you and your employees. Mold spores in the air can cause headaches, respiratory issues, skin irritation and even memory loss. Your building can suffer as well, as mold can corrode structural elements.

Removal vs. Remediation

Mold spores are present everywhere, outdoors and in. This makes it impossible to remove all the mold from a building. In fact, most buildings contain a “natural” amount of non-toxic mold. However, when toxic mold gets out of hand, removing the contaminated surfaces is critical. Unfortunately, it only fixes your mold crisis for the short-term. For the long-term health of your business and employees, you need to discover and remediate the origin of the toxic mold problem. If the moisture source is not controlled, the mold will return.

Mold Disaster Tips

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 and turn off the HVAC.

  • Wear a mask while in a 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!
  • 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.
