What to Expect During the Northern Minnesota Mold Removal and Remediation Process for Commercial Properties

We all know that discovering mold damage can put a real damper on any mood. What if you find mold in your business, though? You’ll be forced to shut down until the problem is dealt with appropriately. Mold can lead to illness in both employees and customers, which is why it’s crucial to act quickly. You need results and you need them fast; otherwise, your company can’t continue operating publicly.

The commercial mold remediation process is only possible with the help of a local restoration team. Only their abilities and advanced restoration equipment will suffice when it comes to mold.

Steps for Commercial Mold Remediation

Every property owner—commercial or residential—knows that mold poses a problem. However, few know that local restoration companies are the first line of defense against a mold infestation.

If your business falls victim to mold, here are the steps the experts will take:

  • Mold Inspection – Immediately upon arrival, the restoration team will begin a thorough mold inspection throughout the property to locate all instances of mold growth and the source of the problem.
  • Damage Mitigation – It’s important to stop the spread of mold spores and ensure your problem does not persist in other rooms. The mitigation process will close off the area, sealing it tight, and treat the problem temporarily.
  • Mold Removal – All physical mold growth in the property must be properly and safely removed, including mold-infested materials.
  • Mold Cleanup & Sanitization – Next, the remnants must be thoroughly cleaned and the area should be sanitized to prevent any mold inhalation or contamination.
  • Restoration – The final step is the full repair and restoration of any contaminated or damaged materials. This will include flooring, wallpaper, drywall, etc.

Know Your Stuff – Mold

The first step, on your part, when it comes to mold in any property is better understanding mold as a whole.

  • Mold can be found in every environment, both indoors and outdoors, at any given time. It’s everywhere.
  • Mold spores are microscopic, invisible to the naked eye, and often enter the property via windows, doors, or the HVAC system.
  • Mold spores require a few things to flourish indoors: moisture, humidity, and poor ventilation.
  • Mold creates colonies, which are the physical infestations you see, that produce allergens and irritants known to cause harmful respiratory effects.
  • Mold may cause a powerful, musty odor that worsens the closer you are to the growth.
