SERVPRO Provides Everett Properties Mold Remediation
Remediating Commercial Mold Damage in an Everett Parking Garage
It can seem like the worst is over for Everett business owners after cleaning up water damage. However, mold can proliferate in as little as 24 to 48 hours. Mold only needs three things to thrive: moisture, adequate temperatures, and organic material. Without professional remediation, fungi can cause health effects and cost business owners even more in damage restoration.
If your business has a garage that has suffered from commercial mold damage in Everett, certified SERVPRO technicians are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to restore your business to a preloss condition. Your local SERVPRO has a general contracting license (#SERVPES871ST), so if your company has suffered structural damage after a disaster, this team is happy to ensure that your facilities are back to normal whenever and as soon as possible.
Preventing Mold Damage in Garage Spaces
There are a variety of things that business owners can do to prevent mold in garages on their property, including:
- Immediately remove standing water with absorbent materials before drying the affected area.
- Installing a dehumidifier to keep relative humidity between 30% and 50%
- Safely maximizing ventilation and sunlight exposure.
- Use only waterproof or mildew-resistant paint in the garage area.
- Replacing cardboard and other organic storage materials with plastic totes and similar water-resistant packaging
Being mindful of storage and other practices in areas that endure frequent exposure to the elements can help save entrepreneurs time, money, and stress when cleaning and maintaining these spaces. Protecting customers' vehicles and contents are of paramount concern for maintaining excellent relationships with the public.
How SERVPRO Can Help
Because a garage space often contains plenty of porous concrete, technicians work quickly to extract water and prepare this surface for drying. Like fabrics and papers, other porous materials may be removed from the space.
Non-porous surfaces, such as soiled plastics and metals, can be scrubbed with OSHA-approved, EPA-registered antimicrobials. For high concentrations of mold on dry surfaces, technicians can use HEPA filter vacuums to break up these clusters before cleaning them up. A commercial-grade detergent solution may be necessary for mold removal on wet surfaces.
