Strategies if your office experienced mold damage

Prevention is the best way of battling commercial mold damage and reduce chances of making unnecessary losses. We can learn from this year's National Preparedness Month (NPM) theme which states that: Disasters Happen. Prepare Now. Learn How. The secret to preventing mold growth is controlling dampness and inadequate ventilation within the indoor environment. If you do not take the right action, the wetness can biologically degrade the items in your Amherst office suite.

To protect your employees from possible health effects when your Amherst office experiences commercial mold damage, our SERVPRO technicians perform appropriate cleanup activities. To begin with, we have to determine whether the remediation process can proceed while your office is still operational - which is possible when a small section of the building has the contamination. We also have to identify the wet or condensation spots in the building and correct the source of the moisture as soon as possible.

If our SERVPRO technicians discover the window sills of your office have mold growth, we have to come up with a tactic for stopping the problem. Such a problem develops typically when the room is poorly ventilated, and that means we may advise you to install an additional room fan once we complete the cleanup procedures. The use of a programmable dehumidifier which keeps the humidity of the room between 30 - 40 percent can also be a good solution. Using disinfectants when cleaning the sills can also do away with favorable conditions for mold growth.

The remediation activities can disturb the mold colonies and make the mold spores airborne. We have to put in place containment measures to prevent occupant exposure to mold. Keeping the site under negative pressure and using duct tape to affix a polyethylene sheeting to ceilings and floors. We also have to switch off the HVAC systems and replace their filters.

SERVPRO of Hampshire County can offer emergency restoration services to your commercial property at any time of the day. Call our highly experienced technicians at (413) 324-1300 to find out more about our solutions.
