Pembroke Pines Office Called SERVPRO for Professional Mold Cleanup
Commercial Mold Damage Remediation in Pembroke Pines Office Complex
When there is commercial mold damage, it is often a symptom of a more significant issue such as a leak or poor ventilation. Remediation of the mold issue usually involves handling either plumbing, ventilation, or other moisture retention issue within a property.
SERVPRO answered a call to remediate a Pembroke Pines commercial mold damage in a breakroom of an office building. The employees noticed a musty odor and upon removing some ceiling tiles, located a pipe with a slow leak and actively growing mold colonies on the wood framing beams in the ceiling.
SERVPRO technicians contained the breakroom to inhibit any further spread of spores. We scoped the breakroom and located no other areas of excessive moisture or mold colonies other than the ceiling area. The office had the pipe repaired before our arrival, so the continued release of water was no longer happening. The acoustical, porous ceiling tiles showed signs of mold damage and could not be cleaned, so we discarded them with the permission of the property owner. We set up air movers to completely dry the mold colonies in the ceiling area. Once the humidity levels dropped to around forty percent, we moved on to the next step in the mold remediation process.
We have several methods for treating mold colonies; in this case, our technicians chose to use soda blasting to remove the mold from the wood. This method involves directing a stream of bicarbonate soda (also known as baking soda) at the dried mold colonies. Because it is a mild abrasive, it removes the mold without harming the surface of the wood underneath.
After blasting, SERVPRO technicians cleaned the area with handheld vacuums with HEPA filters to capture airborne spores and particulates and stop any further spreading. Then we wiped surfaces down with our powerful anti-fungal solutions to inhibit any redevelopment of mold in the future.
As soon as the discovery of a mold colony happens, remediation efforts should begin. Call SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines at (954) 998-0600; our certified experts are available 24/7 to make the issue "Like it never even happened."
