SERVPRO Handles Mold in Three Steps to Ensure Safety

There is all kind of conflicting information around about mold damage and the dangers that it poses to both properties and their occupants. This is partly because there are some things about mold and the way that it affects its environment that are still up for debate. It can make tackling the problem rather tricky, but SERVPRO is committed to a clear goal.

If you have mold growing anywhere in your business, we will eliminate it. We have access to cutting-edge tools and equipment, so no matter how extensive the spread, the problem can be solved. All that we ask if that you trust our team to make the right decisions and get your employees back into the building safely, with minimal disruption. When it comes to mold damage in West Lafayette businesses, SERVPRO is the company to call.

This quick fire guide to the basics of mold remediation will give you some idea of what to expect when we arrive on site.

Step One: Creating an Access Point

We require the use of industrial equipment, such as air movers and dehumidifiers, to clean the atmosphere and fix underlying moisture problems. Therefore, the first thing that we need to do is create a safe point of access. We will consult with you on this so that the team can set up a place to store, move, and operate equipment. They may ask that you stay away from mold affected areas for your safety.

Step Two: Eliminating the Mold with Biocides

Once the affected area has been sealed off, to prevent further spread, we will begin treating it with a high strength biocide. All chemicals used have been approved by the Environmental Protection Agency. They will not leave lasting residues or cause any harm to yourself or your employees once you return to the building. The biocide may need to be left undisturbed for a day or more, but we will explain each step of the process to you.

Step Three: Encapsulating the Leftover Spores

In some cases, it is necessary to apply special paints and encapsulant chemicals to the walls and ceiling. They are designed to trap and kill any mold spores that may be lingering there. The common assumption is that mold remediation primarily involves cleaning, but this is not necessarily true. Prevention is just as important, and we take steps to ensure that the mold does not return in future.

We understand that, if you spot mold damage in your business, your first priority will be the health of employees. What our team can do is put your mind at ease, talk you through the remediation process, and help you keep these people safe. As SERVPRO of Lafayette is a local company, we are right on your doorstep. Call us 24/7 at (765) 420-0077.
