Commercial Mold Removal & Remediation
Our Mold Cleaning Specialists are Available 24/7/365
Any infrastructure experiencing water damage or excessive moisture can become infested with extensive mold, which can prove to be very problematic once it starts actively growing. It takes as little as 48 hours for mold to spread quickly through a commercial property and produce irritants.
Mold can grow on any damp surface, including wood, wallpaper, upholstery, paper, cardboard, paints, insulation material, drywall, and ceilings. And if left unchecked, it can not only affect the structure of your business but could also lower the quality of life in your employees and/or clients/patients. One recent example where this may have occurred is at Seattle’s Children’s Hospital where now a class action lawsuit has been filed against Seattle Children’s hospital in Seattle alleging their patients were exposed to Aspergillus mold. Read about the lawsuit here.
Some common health problems caused by mold infestation include skin irritation, breathing difficulties, headaches, allergic reactions, aggravation of asthma, poisoning by mycotoxins, chronic sinus problems, fungal infections, and many more.

Warning signs of mold growth in your space
If you are not sure whether there is mold in your business or not, there are some signs you can look for:

DIY? Can you clean the mold yourself?
Many people are not up with the idea of hiring a mold cleaning service and think they can clean it themselves. However, mold removal needs professional chemicals, training, and equipment in order to treat the space. In fact, treating mold using household chemicals can actually cause the mold to spread more rapidly and even increase the cost.
Many common household chemicals include bleach and are proven to be ineffective in eliminating mold. In fact, research suggests that when you apply bleach to a porous surface such as grout, carpet, drywall, or wall, it can increase mold growth. The chlorine present in the bleach only kills a small fraction of the mold, but the water in the bleach rests in the material, which provides further moisture to the mold.
Therefore, hiring a mold specialist is critical in order to prevent hassle and ensure effective results. Our mold specialists meet our clients in person to discuss the right strategy for mold remediation. With extensive years of expertise in this field, they understand how to deal with various types of mold in an effective way. Quickly preventing further growth of the mold will not reduce the service cost but will also prevent your employees from falling sick.
Here’s how you can control the growth of mold in your business:
- Cleaning and drying your space after water flooding
- Controlling levels of humidity
- Sealing any roofs, pipes, or windows that might be leaking
- Ventilating high moisture areas to prevent accumulation of water
