SERVPRO Helps Provide Reassurance Before Helping You Mitigate the Damages

On discovering signs of mold at your business premises, you may have much to worry about since mold can lead to many other problems. One issue you may have a hard time reconciling is whether your Syracuse property is too extensively affected for remediation to combat the problem effectively.

Since mold plays a role in natural decay processes, the mold damage at your Syracuse property can ruin everything from furniture to structural supports. The root-like hyphae penetrate deep into organic materials and extract nutrients, leaving the materials weak or hollow. If such extreme deterioration affects vast sections of your property, you may need to tear everything down and rebuild. Rather than relying on guesswork, it would be best if you involved a professional. SERVPRO can help you manage any level of mold damage, "Like it never even happened."

Professional assistance helps in many ways when mitigating mold, including:

Knowing whether the mold affects vast sections or just the areas where you notice the signs can help reassure you that the actions taken are the right ones. Our SERVPRO technicians can help with such probing easily. Apart from checking for visible signs, we drill small exploratory holes in walls or ceiling spaces where mold is suspected then use borescopes for inspection. 

One effective step in mold remediation is removing porous objects, ranging from surface materials such as drywall or wall fillings such as insulation. SERVPRO can perform controlled demolition without causing unnecessary structural damage.

Other helpful remediation procedures include:

  • Cleaning with antimicrobial products
  • Blast cleaning with soda or dry ice
  • Dry cleaning through vacuuming, wire brushing, or sanding

SERVPRO of East Onondaga County can help find the right solutions after mold damage affects your business premises. Call us at (315) 446-8776.
