How Quickly Can You Remove Mold?

SERVPRO provides thorough commercial mold remediation to your Ashland businesses. How fast our technicians can accomplish that depends on how much mold and water are present. Mold spores only become active when there is enough moisture to ‘wake’ them from their inert state and begin expanding.

Is Mold Dangerous to My Employees and Customers?

Mold may cause some health effects but that is about it; not even Black Mold is typically lethal. If you can see or detect that distinctive musty odor, call us, and technicians can arrive at your Barberton workplace to begin remediation before it causes permanent damage to your building.

That is the real threat of active mold colonies as they grow and expand, individual spores extend hyphae to absorb food and water. With enough time, these hyphae can dig into drywall, ceiling tiles, even the wood that makes up wall framing and larger support structures. To stop the growth, our technicians search for any pools, leaks, and other sources of water. This starts the process of returning the mold to an inert state.

To remove the mold, our response team members carefully demolish the infested property, bag it for transport, and dispose of it outside the facility. Where the mold is only on the surface or has only slightly penetrated the surface, technicians use chemical agents to disinfect the affected surfaces and then scrape it off for disposal.

Is My Business Now Free of Mold?

No. Mold spores, especially when they are inert, are too small to see with the unaided eye. Fortunately, they are no more of a threat than common house dust when inert. The best way to keep your business free of active mold growth is to have SERVPRO periodically ensure there is no standing water or leaks inside your facility.
