First Steps When Mold Gets Discovered in a Gaithersburg Office
SERVPRO will kick that mold damage you have in your Gaithersburg office right out the door.
Mold can be a challenging situation to overcome, especially when preventative measures do not get taken in Gaithersburg offices as quickly as they could. Many property owners do not recognize the signs of budding mold colonization, and before long, the situation has gotten out of control. Even with the prompt response of our SERVPRO remediation technicians, there are still some initial steps that business owners can take in the office space to help.
As problematic as mold damage in Gaithersburg offices can be for those exposed, we have a full division of qualified personnel capable of responding quickly. Mold can migrate from surface to surface, seating into these materials and contents. As the organism feeds, it deteriorates the host surface, which can ultimately lead to structural failures and costly reconstruction efforts. We have trained technicians accredited through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) as Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT.) This experience and training help us to respond faster and take more deliberate action.
We have a quick response in a crisis, but there are still ways that you can help while you wait for our response team to arrive. Applying these tactics can help you get your doors back open and get the business up and running much faster than you might have expected.
- Protect your electronics and other valuable items by getting them out of the moist or damp areas of the facility Not only does this reduce the exposure to mold growth, but it can help to keep this investment safe.
- Get employees out of the office until the appropriate measures are taken to seal off contamination and potentially allow the business to reopen in a limited capacity.
- Do not attempt to remove mold growth on your own. With thousands of varieties of structural mold, you need experienced professionals like our SERVPRO AMRTs to identify the best approach to eliminate it.
Many steps are essential to protecting your business after you discover mold growth. Knowing what to do immediately, and some steps to follow after that can limit recovery times and costs. Our SERVPRO of Gaithersburg / Germantown team can help however you need by calling (301) 963-8474.
