Nashville Mold Remediation-Containment to Completion
SERVPRO Tackles Large and Small Scale Commerical Mold Remediation Problems in Nashville
Commercial mold damage in Nashville is always a force to be reckoned with. As the public continues to become increasingly aware that mold can create undesirable health effects and symptoms, there is naturally a real concern about indoor exposure to mold.
Well-established guidelines must be adhered to during the containment, remediation and clean-up processes. Mold and moisture issues that are found in schools and commercial establishments need instant action to mitigate damage and downtime. Measures must be effectively set in place to ensure the protection of the health of the occupants of the building and also of the remediators. Those who need to heed these guidelines are building managers, custodians and others who are responsible for commercial building and school maintenance, along with all mold damage restoration technicians.
There are many species of molds, and they can be found pretty much anywhere. They can usually grow on any organic substance (prefer cellulose) as long as there are conducive conditions of moisture available, and shelter from direct sunlight. These fungi can grow on wood (furniture and desks), paper (documents) carpet, food (cafeterias) and attic and crawlspace insulation. It is impossible to get rid of all of the mold and mold spores that exist in an indoor environment. But the potential for the proliferation of mold can be controlled by making efforts to monitor the moisture that is inside a building and using HEPA filters in the HVAC systems. SERVPRO can use infrared devices to map hidden moisture pockets within the structure (thermograms) by differentiating between temperature ranges of materials. Hygrometers and moisture meters are also technical tools that help discover areas of concern.
Extensive mold growth can cause contamination to the ceilings and walls in many older schools and commercial structures. This happens because of the presence of excessive moisture. This high relative humidity (RH) is linked to the alterations in building construction practices during the years of the 1970s through to the 1990's. These buildings lack adequate ventilation, which leads to moisture build up.
Moisture problems can also be caused by roof leaks, landscaping or gutters that are directing water into or beneath the structure of the building. Not properly maintained venting systems of large appliances like food service cookery or commercial laudermats can lead to high RH, resulting in mold growth.
The professionals of SERVPRO can deal with indoor Nashville mold issues in schools and business establishments to have it mitigated safely. Containment of affected areas, including duct work, is crucial in preventing the spread of mold spores to other parts of the building. Whether a school, warehouse, office, or big box store, the health of everyone, along with the least amount of inconvenience to the day to day operations, are of paramount importance. When the last of the mold remediation efforts are complete, commerce can go on as usual, "Like it never even happened."
