Mold Remediation Is Critical To Your Leominster Retail Store
Fungus Removal Protects Your Retail Shop from Losing Business
While your Leominster retail store might not have much in the line of employees with plumbing experience, a small leak underneath a sink or from a worn piece of piping can present substantial concerns for you. These seemingly insignificant leaks might not present much of a threat when it comes to flooding or other water damages, but it could provide the ideal conditions for fungus to grow.
Mold damage to your Leominster business should be something that stays on your mind. Not only is this a factor that could cause health effects for the staff exposed to it, but it might also affect sensitive customers that are merely shopping in your store. Taking care of the problem right away can prevent these kinds of situations altogether.
Given that mold colonies grow in humid environments, and are prone to thrive on organic materials like cardboard boxes, failure to deal with the problem could end up impacting you financially as well. Consider the risk to the stock in storerooms and the understanding that once clothing or food becomes exposed to the fungus, you are no longer allowed to stock it on your shelves. Our SERVPRO team has the expertise to remove the threat to your business and your employees quickly and efficiently.
Isolating the affected area is the first step that our IICRC-certified remediation specialists take. Using negative air chambers, along with shutting off air circulation measures to the building, ensures that the mold spores present around a growing colony are not given the opportunity to spread. Removal of the colonies is a thorough process which can involve many different tools depending on the kind of fungus that is present, the full extent of the seated hyphae (full organism), and the surface the colony is growing on.
Typically, our technicians utilize scrubbers to deeply clean the surface where the mold is thriving, completely removing the entire organism. Eliminating the colonies prevents spreading, and along with preventative measures like fixing the source of the moisture in the air, dramatically reduces the risk of recurrences.
Mold damage remediation should fall into the hands of trained professionals held to IICRC standards. If you find or smell this fungus growing in your retail store, give SERVPRO of Fitchburg – Leominster a call. You can reach us anytime at (978) 537 -1500.
