SERVPRO Techs Provide Fast-Acting Commercial Mold Remediation in Gaithersburg 24/7

If your Gaithersburg office’s conference room had a ceiling leak repaired recently, you might think that your problems are over for the moment. However, moist conditions can allow for mold to thrive in other areas without thorough mitigation.

When you need commercial mold removal for your Gaithersburg business, SERVPRO is ready to answer the call 24/7 so that you and your staff can enjoy better indoor air quality once more.

What Situations Can Allow Mold to Develop?

All mold needs to proliferate is water and oxygen. Consider if your building has endured one or more of the following conditions recently:

  • Inconsistent building maintenance schedules
  • Poor construction or building with wet materials
  • Leaky window seals, doors, or pipes
  • Unusual amounts on condensation or humidity
  • Landscaping that causes water to flow toward the building

If any of these situations have affected your office, have a licensed professional inspect your facilities for potential mold growth.

What Does SERVPRO’s Mold Remediation Process Entail?

SERVPRO’s mold remediation strategies can be broken down into four major steps:

  • Establishing containment: Sealing entryways and vents, introducing negative air pressure, and dedicating space to decontamination prevent mold spores from spreading outside of the affected area.
  • Removing contamination: Technicians clean loose mold deposits with HEPA vacuums. Agitation methods such as sanding or brushing are better-suited to semi-porous materials like wood and concrete.
  • Cleaning dust and spores: Several rounds of damp cleaning combined with HEPA vacuuming eliminates settled mold spores.
  • Drying the structure: After cleaning, structural drying returns items to normal moisture levels and prevents conditions that allow mold to return.
