How to Remove Mold in Your Commercial Building

Written by Casey Shearns on . Posted in , .

You may have experience with mold removal in your home, but commercial mold removal is an entirely different ballgame. Due to the size of commercial properties, mold has much more room to expand and grow than it does in a residence. Mold growth can possibly halt business operations, preventing employees and customers from being able to enter the premises. Because of this, it is imperative that when mold is detected, it is removed immediately. 

Here, we will discuss mold removal remedies for commercial buildings.

What Can Cause Mold?

Mold can grow wherever there is moisture and a food source. In commercial spaces, mold can grow and spread due to any of the following factors:

  • Uncontrolled moisture/ leaks in the building
  • Water damage (detected or undetected)
  • Elevated relative humidity
  • Presence of attractive food sources – Building materials such as sheetrock, ceiling tiles, and carpeting

Warning Signs

Signs that your building may possibly be exposed to mold include:

  • Musty odors
  • Noticeable moisture problems
  • Visible mold or mildew
  • Water stains in the building
  • Chronic and unexplainable illness of building occupants (symptoms such as headaches, allergies, congestion, etc…)

Identifying the Mold Issue and Scope

A certified mold inspector will come into your property to locate problem areas and see how far the mold has spread. They will conduct a visual inspection, moisture meter test along with air and/or surface sampling. A report should be produced identifying the areas of concern along with their levels of contamination. 

Mold Remediation

Mold remediation involves the abatement process; the elevated mold spores will be removed from the property. However, remediation involves a few more preventative steps in order to stop mold growth from occurring again in the future. Professionals will inspect the premise, contain all areas of mold, filter the air, clean up the mold, and thoroughly treat the building. This process removes the elevated mold levels in your commercial property. Since the source was found, preventative measures are taken to ensure it does not happen again.

All I have to say is WOW and FANTASTIC. I just got done building out my new professional office with Soil-Away’s construction division and they went ABOVE and BEYOND. Scott and Mike, the carpenters are skilled artisans. The project got done on time and the project came in on budget! The finished results have been blowing people away. Much better than I could have anticipated. Anyone is welcome to come to our office, Bright Light Chiropractic in Hooksett to check out the fine work they did. Simply can’t sing enough praises for them. Sorry that the picture doesn’t do the job justice. Thank you Jack and your team. -Dr. Jay

Since day one, I’ve known the owner, Jack, to be a hard-working and selfless leader. Through the efforts of him and his team, he was able to restore my flooded restaurant to tip-top shape. I was amazed with Jack’s orderliness throughout the entire process. Jack has proven to me that he is trustworthy, as both a friend and an individual in the work environment.

Highly recommend Soil-Away. A pipe in our upstairs bathroom gave and sent water down through a wall for at least a day before we noticed water dripping through our kitchen ceiling. Our insurance put us in touch with Soil-Away and they were at our house the next morning to assess the damage and dry things out. Joe, Ray and Tom were phenomenal to work with. They explained every part of the process to us and were very professional and friendly. If you have to deal with similar issues call Soil-Away, you won’t regret it.
