SERVPRO employees standing in front of vehicles. SERVPRO is here and ready to assist you from beginning to end. We know how important your Fort Walton Beach business is to you.

Discovering Mold in the Workplace Can Be Unsettling. SERVPRO Commercial Mold Removal is Available for Fort Walton Beach Businesses.

Does mold indicate an unsanitary business?

The appearance of mold is not necessarily indicative of low building upkeep. Fort Walton Beach businesses can often suffer due to their proximity to oceanside and higher humidity levels in this area. Sometimes, mold colonies can form as a direct consequence of weather changes. Whatever the reason for mold growth, the most important thing is to get your business back to a sanitary state for your staff and customers. SERVPRO applied microbial remediation technicians (AMRT) have experience working with companies in the area and can quickly identify, assess, and repair mold issues in the workplace. 

What are the steps of mold remediation for businesses?

-    Clean materials with signs of infestation and dry them thoroughly.

-    Dispose of materials that do not respond to cleaning

-    Dry the area thoroughly within forty-eight hours

Can mold spread throughout a business premise?

One of the difficulties in dealing with mold damage in your Fort Walton Beach business is controlling spreading. Molds reproduce for spores, which can become airborne, especially when applying aggressive cleaning techniques to mold colonies. SERVPRO technicians are capable of confining a microbial growth issue to one part of your business. You may even be able to continue working on the premises while the mold remediation is underway. Containing the source of the issue is usually done using negative air-pressure, high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters, and physical barriers in plastic sheeting.

What is the commercial mold remediation work process?

-    Confine the mold issue at its source and put in place controls to prevent spreading

-    Use aggressive, chemical, and mechanical cleaning to get rid of contamination.

-    Supply dehumidification equipment to correct the long-term moisture problem

Uncontrolled microbial growth could lead to temporary business closure and loss of revenue. Contact SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach at (850) 863-2552.
