Commercial Commercial Mold Remediation In this photo a SERVPRO technician is properly handling a mold remediation

If water damage occurs it is best to have professionals take care of it.  If it's small then it is best to get an estimate and scope of work by an estimator who has the right equipment to find out how much water is in a material as well as how far its spread.  When water isn't handles correctly mold can form and when that same area gets affected again mold can spread and become big and spores can cause mold to find other locations and a small leak could turn into a big mold remediation.  In this commercial building that just happened.  The owners sent out professionals to remediate the mold.  SERVPRO of Southwest Las Vegas was able to treat the mold properly and make the business a safe working environment again.

Does Your Las Vegas Home Have A Mold Problem?

7/1/2016 (Permalink)

Commercial Does Your Las Vegas Home Have A Mold Problem? In Las Vegas, mold can spread through a home in as little as 48 hours

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.
