Recognizing potential mold in your commercial building

5/9/2022 (Permalink)

Whether you are a facility manager, employer, or even a landlord, you most likely understand the importance of combating mold growth. However, the seriousness of preventing mold in your building can often be overlooked. Mold can have financial repercussions with hefty consequences. State laws require that areas of employment meet certain safety standards, it’s important to know the ins and outs of mold growth.

What Causes Mold Growth?

Mold spores thrive in environments where dense moisture and low light are present. Once spores get a hold of water and oxygen in a darker area, they are bound to spread at a fast rate. Water buildup can occur from broken pipes, leaky roofs, basement/lower level flooding, and a variety of other avenues. Regardless of how stagnant water finds a way into your building, once it’s there, toxic mold has the potential to thrive and be extremely difficult to remove.

What are the Signs of Mold Growth?

Although it can come in different colors and growth patterns, mold is universally recognized by its fuzzy, sometimes slimy texture. As a facility manager or business owner, it is important that you know mold growth can give off signs in a couple of ways.

Visual Evidence of Mold

The easiest way to know that you have mold is to physically see it growing within your building. Once mold has been seen, don’t hesitate to call and have professional mold removal services inside your structure.

Once a mold outbreak starts, it can cost your business tons of time and money to stop it. Taking proper preventative measures can save you from potentially disastrous results. Here are some best practices to keep your Ohio business safe from mold.

  • Check the pipes in your building or hire a crew to perform frequent building maintenance.
  • Make sure your building has proper ventilation throughout the entire property.
  • Ensure carpets are kept clean and consider replacing old carpet that might become a host for spores.
  • Place a dehumidifier in your building throughout the hot, moist summer months.

Contact SERVPRO of Zanesville/Cambridge

In the event that you are facing a mold outbreak in your building, do not try to remediate it yourself. DIY methods are often ineffective and can set up your building more mold problems down the line.  If your commercial or industrial building needs mold removal, call SERVPRO of Zanesville/Cambridge at (740) 844-0977!

Dealing With Smoke Damage in Commercial Buildings

12/26/2021 (Permalink)

When a fire occurs, SERVPRO of Zanesville/Cambridge works to assist business owners and proprietors to move forward and put their lives and businesses back together. It can be overwhelming. The restoration process after a commercial fire is laborious if not time-consuming. It includes:

  • damage assessment
  • debris removal
  • odor, soot, and residual water mitigation

Fire and smoke damage restoration professionals are there to advise and direct business owners to sift through the damage and greatly aid in rebuilding their businesses and commercial properties.

Once undertaken, the goal of commercial fire damage restoration is to thoroughly clean every nook and cranny of a business or commercial property after a fire. In a fire’s aftermath, much of the damage restoration focuses on eliminating the persistent smoke odors and the accompanying soot and residual water. Every trace of the contaminants responsible for odors must be scrubbed clean and deodorized. High-powered equipment such as air scrubbers can help clear the air of particulates and odors. Industrial air movers and dehumidifiers mitigate residual water and moisture from putting out the fire.

It all hinges on taking action quickly. In doing so it’s possible for smoke and fire restoration professionals to minimize damage and loss. Here are several steps to anticipate how your restoration professional deals with smoke damage after a fire occurs on your commercial property.

Smoke Odors

As with most fires, commercial fires leave a pungent odor that permeates the building, furnishings, fixtures, and air throughout the property. Those odors are in large part a result of the fire source itself—the debris from the fire, the soot and residual water and chemicals that were used to extinguish the fire. The debris must be dealt with first.

Once the fire and insurance company have determined an origin and cause of the fire, restoration crews move to quickly remove the debris and soot from the premises. Materials such as charred furnishings, rugs, and ceiling tiles are carried out until the property is emptied of any burned remnants of the fire. Debris removal also mitigates odors by removing microscopic dust particles, airborne and settled, that derives from soot deposits and burned debris. Debris removal reduces the intensity of odors, but will not completely eliminate them. Soot and residual water also combine to contribute to smoke odors, and they must be dealt with.

Soot Removal

Thick layers of soot mixed with moisture cover a good portion of commercial fire sites. Soot is the black, powdered carbon and chemical byproduct of the burned material after a fire. Depending on the material burned in commercial fires, the chemical or acidic composition of soot can cause further damage on its own to just about any surface it is in contact with. Soot can stain porous and textured surfaces, permanently discolor granite, plastics, grout and the un-burned fixtures made of wood or textiles.

Removal of soot can reduce the likelihood of permanent soot staining discoloration and may reduce the costs of replacement. As an important step in fire damage restoration, industrial vacuums are very helpful in removing the layers and bulk of powdery soot after fires.

Residual Water

Not only is mold a problem after flooding but after fires as well. Residual water from extinguishing the fire can lead to mold spreading throughout the property if it is not properly mitigated. The increased moisture in the air interacts with mold spores. In a confined space this allows mold to grow rapidly, covering and staining porous surfaces. The smoky odor after a fire rapidly combines with mold to further contaminate the air and interact with surfaces. The longer such odors interact with surfaces the more difficult it will be to completely eliminate the odor.

Commercial fire damage restoration entails industrial-grade air movers and dehumidifiers to remove water and moisture that can lead to airborne mold spores. All interior walls must be checked for water damage. All surfaces must be cleaned thoroughly and wiped down with anti-bacterial agents throughout the process.

If you have a commercial building with fire damage, give us a call to help get you back and running.
