Guests of hotels and restaurants are not interested in viewing or smelling mold when on a long-anticipated vacation. Mold growth can be tricky to locate but can be detected because of a musty smell and dark staining. Standard cleaning methods are no match for mold growth and can make matters worse. Call the experts for mold remediation, SERVPRO of Tarpon.

Mold damage is a constant worry for businesses. Our humid climate and the heavy rains we experience combine to provide the moisture mold spores need to multiply. Owners and property managers need to be vigilant about keeping indoor humidity levels lower than 60 percent, cleaning up spills, and maintaining plumbing and water-dependent appliances.

If mold is observed it is crucial that the methods used to treat it are effective. Often housekeeping crews depend on diluted chlorine bleach mixtures that fail to penetrate deeply enough into porous materials to kill the mold completely. SERVPRO of Tarpon crews utilize EPA-registered antimicrobial agents specially formulated to eliminate active mold colonies.

We also use mechanical methods to clear mold from surfaces, brushing and scraping the moldy residues off. This works well on non-porous materials. If faced with cleaning mold from drywall, grout lines, and other structural components that allow water to penetrate and absorb SERVPRO technicians might choose a strategy like soda blasting to reach the hyphae beneath the surface.

As we plan our mold remediation for your business, we also provide containment methods to ensure spores and other residues do not drift to non-affected areas. Our EPA-developed mold remediation protocol includes containment of the moldy areas. Heavy plastic sheeting and negative pressure air scrubbers keep the mold exposure limited. SERVPRO of tarpon crew members don personal protective gear to prevent tracking mold into other areas.

We try to keep non-affected spaces in your facility open and operating as we contain the work area. SERVPRO works with you to arrange for the elimination of the moist conditions causing the mold risk.

SERVPRO of Tarpon supports the commitment of our employees to obtain advanced certifications from the IICRC, including Applied Microbial Remediation Technician. Call us at (727) 934-5555 to schedule an evaluation of your mold remediation needs.
