Immediately Acting is Vital to Removing Mold from Your Sarasota Business

Business owners in Sarasota understand the importance of maintaining their property and its content. Mold can damage inventory, office furniture, and supplies. More importantly, mold can cause liability issues for business owners if employees or clients are negatively impacted.  It needs immediate mitigation, and SERVPRO is here to help your company remove mold growth.

I Think My Business is Infested – How Do I Know for Sure?

Mold can be hidden, but it is relatively easy to detect. If you think your South Sarasota business has a mold problem, it presumably does. Mold removal for your Sarasota business needs to be professional to ensure your company stays in business. There are signs for which your cleaning and maintenance crew can look. They include:

  • Darker grout – If the grout in your restrooms or other tiled areas seems darker, it could be mold.
  • Musty smells – If you notice moldy or musty smells in any area or coming through your HVAC system, you have a mold problem.
  • Visible mold – Even a small infestation can spread rapidly to adjacent areas.
  • Damp spots – Moisture leads to mold.

What Should I Do if I Do Detect Mold?

Calling SERVPRO is the first step in mold remediation for your commercial enterprise. Our Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT) have the equipment and the skill to properly deal with mold growth. Because mold multiplies quickly, we need to move fast. Shutting down your HVAC system and fans should be done right away. Keep all employees and clients out of the infected area. Do not attempt to have your cleaning crew remove the mold.  SERVPRO of South Sarasota can coordinate our licensed mold assessor to test for and identify the specific types of microbial growth and then test upon our completion of remediation to confirm that the area is safe.  This vital documentation confirms that business owners have taken the proper steps to provide a safe working environment for their employees.

Commercial Mold Remediation

Our techs begin by containing the area, so the mold does not spread. Physical barriers such as plastic sheeting get used along with negative air machines. Thermal hygrometers and moisture meters are used to detect hidden dampness. The mold remediation process involves removing mold spores from the air with air scrubbers and HEPA filters. Carpet, drywall, and sheetrock may need to be removed if the infestation is bad enough. Replacing these items is part of the restoration process, which is just a portion of our pros' ability to restore your company to preloss condition.
