Do I Need Mold Inspection & Removal?

Contamination from the mold is a growing concern for all kinds of businesses in the Mesa AZ area.

Mold is a fungus that flourishes in damp places and is known to grow in just about any area with moist conditions. Left unaddressed, mold can lead to potential health effects and harm your business's structural integrity. SERVPRO technicians have the necessary training to handle mold remediation. Our crew takes the time required to identify mold growth carefully to work on a plan for removal and sanitization.

What Should I Know About Mold?

Business owners need to know that some restoration entities will advertise their services as 'mold removal' in Mesa AZ. However, the idea of completely removing mold from your business is not possible and not even ideal. Every commercial building contains microscopic mold spores, so it is important that you know some of the facts:

  • Mold is everywhere, both inside and outside of buildings.
  • Mold thrives in moist environments and quickly colonizes when spores are exposed to water. When this happens, the mold colonies can bring on health effects and do serious damage to building structures.
  • Microscopic in nature, mold spores travel through the air and often enter into commercial buildings through doors, windows, HVAC systems, or on the clothing of people who enter your business.
  • When a significant amount of mold is present, you may start to notice a strong, musty odor.
  • It is essential that moisture or standing water areas get cleared up before mold remediation services can begin. Without this step, mold can quickly return.
  • It is best to note that higher humidity levels can create the ultimate atmosphere for mold growth. It is suggested that the indoor humidity of your building is kept lower than 45%. Luckily, in Arizona, we don’t have the same moisture issues as states like Florida or Alabama. However, that also means Arizonans are less likely to think about it and neglect it.

What are the signs of Mold I should look for?

One of the reasons that mold damage goes undetected is that it is usually hidden and hard to find. Should you have one or more of the following issues, you can contact SERVPRO of North Central Mesa to start the inspection process:
