Silverdale, Mold Damage, and the Call to SERVPRO for Remediation
Removing Commercial Mold Damage From Silverdale Businesses
For Silverdale business owners, life along Highway 3 and Puget Sound are good for local and tourist traffic. Service industry businesses are not just diners and gift shops any more though. A tourist or resident with an internet business still needs access to his clients while eating lunch on the run or trying to run personal and professional errands simultaneously.
When commercial mold damage strikes a Silverdale business service and postal store, it can close doors to clients who need to receive inventory, bills, and payments to support their customer base. Too long, and they set up shop elsewhere. SERVPRO technicians understand that a rapid response is important, and thorough cleaning and removal of the mold is the only way to keep the business open for the long run.
Our teams start by isolating the mold from the rest of the structure. This action prevents further contamination and allows technicians to begin cleaning mold off surfaces almost immediately. In most situations, they can remove most infestations with dry sponges and a mild, anti-fungal cleaning agent.
For thicker layers of mold discovered behind walls or overhead, SERVPRO specialists use a stronger cleaning agent to break them up. If needed, they also use a tool such as a powered agitator or a wire brush to separate the mold from the affected surface. Our SERVPRO techs can also utilize "soda-blasting," to gently abrade thin layers of mold from hard surfaces like raw wood.
In customer areas, mold often affects tiles in drop ceilings and penetrates drywall. With both types of building material, it is cheaper, and faster, to remove and replace the affected pieces instead of expending the labor and material costs to attempt cleaning. Depending on the size of the affected room, team members can dispose of the material in a day or two with replacement taking about the same amount of time.
At SERVPRO of Kitsap County, we want to support every business so they can support our community.
