Mold Cleanup In Schools: Find The Best Remediation Manager In Englewood

Mold growth is not uncommon within these buildings and causes great concern when discovered.

Commercial Mold Cleanup

Our city is home to schools, both public and private. Mold growth is not uncommon within these buildings and causes great concern when discovered. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) developed guidelines for remediating mold in schools and commercial buildings. SERVPRO is familiar with this proper protocol and uses it when responding to concerns from school officials.

Administrators, parents, teachers and students appreciate an efficient approach to mold damage remediation in Englewood schools. The buildings in question are often large and filled with many areas where mold spores find the water, oxygen, and organic surfaces necessary for growth. Plumbing lines snake from restrooms to water fountains in every hall and level of the school. Gymnasiums, swimming pools, and HVAC systems offer other sources of moisture and hidden areas for microbial growth. The response we provide adjusts to the scale of the problem once an investigation begins.

The EPA protocol lists a number of considerations aimed at owner-managers of school and other commercial sites:

    •    Assess size of affected area(s)
    •    Pay particular attention to spaces where occupants noticed smells or felt susceptible people reacted to the potential infestation
    •    Seek out hidden mold
    •    Respond to smaller outbreaks and the water issues feeding them immediately to limit problem
    •    Look for water damage
    •    View inside air ducts and system
    •    Choose a remediation manager if the outbreak is large or in many areas

If a private school or public district determines the mold abatement task is beyond their in-house efforts SERVPRO stands ready with our local presence, and access to a nationwide network if needed. We provide mold remediation trained specialists for these jobs, technicians who completed additional education courses in line with the EPA standards. Expect our staff to contain the mold, to remove the mold and any contents it damaged or infiltrated, to disinfect the affected areas, and to identify and plan for the repair and restoration of breaches in the structures and fixtures permitting water to permeate the school building.

Our services include state of the art containment technology, vital to protect the occupants of the building while remediation progresses. SERVPRO industrial air scrubbers use a series of filters to remove dangerous substances, along with negative pressure to contain the spread of moldy material as our technicians remove the colonies. After the cleanup and water damage restoration completes we schedule return visits, per EPA guidelines, to inspect and test for additional microbial activity.

Look no further than SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood when in search of a qualified mold remediation company for your campus. Call to schedule a consultation at (201) 266-0482.
