Is Your Commercial Property Affected by Mold from Water Damage?

4/27/2020 (Permalink)

At SERVPRO, we care about your health and well-being. Any size of water damage to a property is not a small matter. No matter the source whether a storm, leak, or natural disaster, water damage leaves a lasting impression on the areas it touches even long after it can appear to be cleaned up or dried out. 

Water is excellent at finding its way into any and all possible places it can fit from the walls to the carpet to the foundation itself. If water is not properly cleaned up and dried out it can leave behind a foundation for other problems, and one, in particular, is black mold. 

Controlling the amount of moisture throughout your property includes keeping areas dry and not letting moisture sit for long amounts of time. Clean up spills on the floor, clean out your gutters, and keep air conditioning drip pans clean. If there are generally more moist areas in your property than others, you can also use things such as a dehumidifier to remove the moisture from the air effectively. A large cause of mold in the first place is not properly repairing, cleaning, and drying out space after water gets into it. This can include things such as plumbing or roofing leaks. Just because the leak has been stopped doesn’t mean that water hasn’t gotten in and has pooled somewhere. It is best after any water damage to have an IICRC trained professional come and inspect and properly clean out your home to ensure no mold can develop and spread. 

Give SERVPRO of North Fulton a call at (770) 992-2777 for any water damage or mold inspections to keep your home or business safe. If water has unfortunately made it into your property, let the professionals, like the experts here at SERVPRO help you.
