Mold is not only a threat to your health, but it can also cause major property damage. With so many shops, stores, restaurants and public areas, a shopping mall can be a target for many aspects of mold. Mold can appear just about anywhere and typically thrives in moist, damp areas. It smells musty and can discolor your walls, floors, and furniture. It can also hide behind walls, underneath floors, and around seldom-seen pipes in your home or business. Untreated mold can become a very big health and structural problem if not treated quickly and correctly.
A large threat to malls, are the large inventory of clothes, shoes, products and food that can be affected with a mold issue. Be aware that mold can set in within 72 hours after moisture has been sitting. If an area is not completely dry within this time frame, it is very important to have a mold test for mold growth. If the test does come back positive it is important to call a remediation specialist immediately so we can quickly begin our work.
The spread of mold contamination should be controlled as close as possible to its source. Our Professionals seal off the work area, using plastic sheeting, so that mold spores do not become dispersed throughout the area. We may have to discard moldy porous building materials such as drywall, insulation and baseboards. These materials are relatively inexpensive to replace and difficult to impossible to restore to their previous uncontaminated condition. We will have a team using negative pressure fans all while wearing protective clothing and equipment.
Once everything is completely dry vacuum with a HEPA filtered cleaner to remove residual mold and spores we will begin by treating all materials with mold killing solutions to prevent future growth.
As a Mall Owner or Retailer you need to protect your investment, so it’ important to call the company with knowledge and efficiency to get your business back up and running to its fullest potential.
