Saving Business Reputations One Mold Remediation at a Time in the Bronx

Most people recoil immediately when confronted with mold, which is the last reaction you want from visitors to your Bronx business. Inspectors are always on the lookout for microbial infestations. Other reasons for acting swiftly when mold growth is evident are the well-being of your customers and employees and the soundness of the building materials in your shop, offices, or dining establishment. Our certified crews act fast when you need mold remediation in any area of the borough (License #01295).

Mold Exposes Structures and Individuals to Risks
The sight or smell of commercial mold damage in the Bronx can damage the reputation of your business. A mold violation from health officials or building inspectors can close you down temporarily, concerning your customers and encouraging them to look elsewhere for goods, services, or their next meal. Studies show that even a brief closure can undermine your brand. Our ability to isolate the mold outbreak during remediation often permits you to remain open to meet your base’s needs.

Containment Is the Key
SERVPRO mold remediators scope out the mold-affected space. We must make sure that the necessary equipment and workers fit inside the remediation containment area planned. All openings between the remediation workspace, including windows, doorways, elevator openings, corridor entrances, ventilation openings, drains, ducts, grilles, grates, diffusers, skylights, and more require an airtight seal using 6-mil polyethylene, taped or stapled tightly. Any cracks or holes in cabinets, shelving, and other structures and fixtures must be secured completely. Negative pressure air scrubbing machines ensure the seal and vent airborne contaminants to the outside.

Training Takes Over
Our remediation crews are highly-qualified, ready to begin removing mold from both solid and porous surfaces immediately after containment completes. Mechanical removal is most efficient, scraping, and brushing off the organisms before double-bagging for appropriate disposal. Porous materials like insulation usually need removal and disposal as the mold infiltrates them extensively. SERVPRO crews can deliver excellent results for semi-porous surfaces like wood with soda and dry ice blasting. The HEPA filters on the air scrubbers and vacuums remove excess spores and debris from the air and surfaces left as residues after removal methods.
