Common Challenges During Commercial Mold Remediation in Bergen County

Mold develops easily when a building has persistent water leaks or the relative humidity levels exceed 60%. Water spills can also lead to mold infestation if cleanup and drying efforts are inadequate. When mold develops in offices or other similar businesses sharing space, the owners encounter several challenges in the process of eradicating it. With our professional remediation services, you can navigate through the infestation with minimal challenges.
Testing is one issue that can complicate commercial mold remediation in Bergen County. Mold tends to develop in concealed sections of the property such as wall cavities first. One of the early signs of mold is a musty smell, but in shared spaces, there is a need to identify the exact location, so many people spend considerable amounts of money on tests to confirm the location. Our AMRT, Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians, understand that mold is a sign of underlying moisture problems. We can, therefore, help you avoid wasting money by looking for the cause. We use different moisture detection tools including thermal cameras that help identify wetness in concealed spaces. Thermo-hygrometers help us check the relative humidity levels in and outside affected areas.
Mold remediation involves some level of tear down of building materials on walls and other surfaces. Finishes like paint may also come off as the workers scrub off mold residues from surfaces. Hiring different teams to rebuild the areas torn down during the remediation can drive costs higher than expected. Our SERVPRO technicians handle the entire process from clean up to rebuilding and refinishing the affected surfaces.
Mold affects all organic items in properties including furnishings, fabrics such as draperies, and even books. Many older retail shops have circulation which can lead to excess moisture, and then the mold colonization. Cleanup and restoration is, therefore, an extensive exercise which can take long when limited resources are available. Our SERVPRO technicians work as a team, so we have a sufficient workforce to tackle every aspect of the project including moving items and rearranging the place. We also use advanced equipment such as soda blasters to remove residues from structural components. By creating exclusion zones with plastic sheets, we can work on affected areas without disrupting your daily activities.
In case of mold infestation in your workplace, call SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood to help with remediation. You can reach us at (201) 266-0482 any time.
