SERVPRO - Commercial Mold Damage Repair For Naples Businesses
Learn About SERVPRO's Mold Remediation Process for Naples Businesses
Mold, once it starts, can quickly infest and damage businesses in Naples. Owners need to quickly call in a professional service to stop the growth, remove it, and then repair or remove the affected property.
Commercial mold damage repair for Naples businesses is not a quick process, but SERVPRO restorations teams do everything they can to make it as painless for the owners as possible. For our technicians, the best method of repairing mold damaged property is to clean it thoroughly, so there is no future growth.
First, however, we have to find and stop the source of moisture. Mold spores remain inert until they come into contact with enough moisture to allow them to expand and begin seeking a food source. If the source is a pool of collected rainwater or a leaking pipe, our technicians spray it with an anti-fungal agent and then remove it with a water vacuum or a series of sponges. The technicians can repair minor damage like a loose pipe, but if there is something larger like a broken water line, we recommend the owner calls in a plumber or general contractor.
Many of the businesses we work in are a standard office setting, like an insurance agency. The primary source of damage is usually to the walls, ceilings, and carpeting. SERVPRO specialists can quickly determine what is salvageable and begin work.
For ceilings, technicians remove the affected tiles or panels. If the mold is dry, they begin by wiping off the mold with a dry sponge. If it does not remove everything, they spray them with an anti-fungal as we did with the contaminated water and then use a clean sponge to wipe them down. If the mold still resists, technicians remove the tile or panel for disposal. Other specialists use the same method on affected drywall and wood paneling.
When mold infests carpeting, our restoration team uses shampooer to apply a strong, anti-fungal cleaner that gets deep into the surface. Each team member is trained to effectively use this machine without causing physical damage to the nap of the carpet. They then use extraction wands to draw out the water, mold, and anti-fungal. Technicians finish the task with a vacuum and a HEPA filter designed to capture and hold mold spores.
