Mold Remediation in Commercial Properties
Certain commercial properties, like hotels and apartment complexes, can easily attract mold
infestations. Mold at its best can leave a foul odor, and at its worst can be deadly, so its important
to make sure any traces are eliminated as quickly and thoroughly as possible. If you notice any
signs of mold, SERVPRO of Northbrook / Wheeling / Glencoe is here to help you clean and
remediate your property. Mold can grow in difficult places, and often it can be dangerous to
completely remove. We have the training and equipment to guarantee that mold and any odors
left behind are eliminated.
When we remediate mold, we make sure that it is eliminated from the environment. Remediation
involves not just the right cleaning agents and equipment, but also delicate procedures that
maximize cleaning efficiency. Removing mold can cause spores to spread into other areas, so we
use negative pressure to contain the area and prevent further damage. We also can search and
scan for moisture in walls or carpets in order to find hidden mold or areas of water damage. Also,
our team is equipped with the best quality gear for both protection and removal.
Am I at Risk?
Hotels and apartments are especially prone to mold infestations since bathrooms and appliances
often allow moisture into the area. Mold is usually the result of moisture remaining in trapped
crevices, where the right temperature and moisture levels allows it to thrive, and where it is often
missed while cleaning. Of course, mold also often comes after water damage. It can grow in and
under carpets, wallpaper, and insulation, and can be very difficult to spot and clean. If you notice
an odor, or if there had been any recent water damage, you may want to check for mold.
