Some of the benefits to having our SERVPRO of East Windsor commercial cleaning professionals perform an air duct, vent and register cleaning at your Mercer County commercial building are;

Commercial Air Duct Cleaning Benefits:

  • Reduce energy costs for your business
  • Reduce the potential for mold growth
  • Improve indoor air quality

According to the US Department of Energy, 25 to 40 percent of the energy used for heating or cooling is wasted due to air pollutants and other dirt and debris clogging up residential/commercial air ducts.

Common issues that decrease air flow in your commercial air duct system:

  • Blocked vents and registers

  • Blocked or leaky ducts

Our SERVPRO of East Windsor technicians have advanced training to help resolve potential air flow concerns and accurately clean and remove the buildup of dust/debris, contaminants, mold spores, and particulates circulating throughout your commercial air ducts. Our crews use a variety of specialized equipment to remove years of buildup and pollutants within your air duct system, including high-powered HEPA vacuums, negative air machines and whisking brushes to help remove debris and mold spores from internal surfaces.

New Jersey Businesses turn to SERVPRO professionals for mold inspection and remediation

11/4/2020 (Permalink)

containment structure onsite during mold remediation SERVPRO crews are available for commercial mold remediation, call for an inspection of your property by our professional staff.

Mold colonization in commercial facilities and warehouses can quickly get out of control without the appropriate intervention, SERVPRO is here to help with mold remediation for all types of Mercer County commercial facilities.

What is Mold Remediation

Mold remediation is the process of finding, containing, and removing mold and damaged materials from an affected area and the air around it. It’s crucial to contain the damaged areas, because spores are microscopic and can easily spread to other areas through the air or by attaching themselves to clothes or objects throughout the remediation process. SERVPRO mold removal specialists are specially trained using techniques to contain the damaged areas and mitigate the spread of mold, using air pressure and physical barriers to seal off the infected area, including ductwork during the remediation process.

Moldy items such as furniture, carpeting and inventory are cleaned if the infestation is minor or removed if it’s extensive. In this commercial warehouse our mold remediation team setup on-site clean rooms to more efficiently remediate damaged materials and contents. Damaged parts of drywall are removed, replaced, and repainted. Large storage racks can be hand cleaned with antimicrobial agents, all items in the area must be cleaned and sanitized, even if they don’t have visible mold. Mold can be very illusive and can grow behind wallpaper, inside books or files and other hidden areas. Our SERVPRO professionals have advanced equipment and top tier training to remediate mold and return any commercial property mold damage back to a healthy, safe and operation work environment.

Commercial Mold Remediation for New Jersey

The Environmental Protection Agency has a guide for Mold Remediation in Schools and Commercial Buildings on their website.

How Does SERVPRO Stop the Spread of Mold During the Remediation Process

SERVPRO of East Windsor mold remediation crew members are train to use the highest restoration industry standards, mastering Applied Microbial Remediation through IICRC courses. We employ the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) developed protocols to contain and remove active mold colonies. Our crews also use EPA registered antimicrobial products to treat surfaces after removal to inhibit additional growth. During remediation, we protect our employees and your occupants from the hazards of mold remediation by creating zones where we remove and bag the mold and contaminated debris. Physical barriers provide one kind of protection, and we also install HEPA filtered exhaust ductwork and use negative air pressure to prevent airborne mold and residues from infiltrating unaffected areas of the building.

Containment of the Affected Area

One of the main concerns, when indoor mold is present, is the dissemination of airborne mold spores. When a remediation project is initiated the first step is to set up containment or isolation of the affected area. Containment will help our SERVPRO professionals control the spread of these spores while assisting the remediation process in returning the affected area to normal conditions. The act of removing or disturbing a mold source tends to distribute large quantities of mold spores into the air. If proper containment is not utilized, this can affect adjacent spaces to the work area and cause cross contamination.

When setting up containment of the work area, the first step is to install a HEPA Filtered Negative Air machine. This is a fan which pulls air from the affected area and exhausts the contaminated air outside of the structure via flexible tubing or ducting. Doing this will begin to draw the airborne mold spores away from the airspace, eventually creating a negative pressure environment.

The second step is to install physical barriers in the work area, creating zones. This is most typically done with the use of heavy plastic. The main goal when creating this physical barrier is to completely isolate the work area from any adjacent, non-affected areas. All HVAC systems or shared airways between other rooms would be taped or covered in plastic, and all electrical outlets and light fixtures would be covered. Basically, any area that could allow air flow between the mold infested area and another non-affected area should be properly sealed.

If you discover mold or are experiencing a musty odor in your commercial warehouse or building, call the professionals at SERVPRO of East Windsor to help. Our highly trained and IICRC certified New Jersey mold remediation specialists are here to help, to explain and assess your property’s commercial mold cleanup and mitigation needs. Our priority is to keep you informed of your specific remediation solution and get your commercial property’s mold damage concerns under control. Our teams will cleanup, remove damage and remediate your commercial mold problem, restoring your facility, “Like it never even happened.”

Neglecting a property water damage occurrence can lead to excessive structural damage and microbial growth

mold growth on walls after property water damage Don't wait too long to choose a professional cleanup and recovery service following property damage, it can be a costly and hazardous mistake.

SERVPRO is here to help local Mercer County communities with ALL TYPES of water damages, our team responds quickly with emergency response cleanup and mitigation to minimize secondary damages to your property, including structural damages and mold growth. Neglecting to properly cleanup and remediate a water damage can lead to even greater property damage concerns. Often, when cleaning up a water damage issue or flood, mopping up a puddle or fixing a clogged sink can seem like the end to your trouble, but there can be hidden damage. During warm spring and summer months keeping an ideal relative humidity can be difficult, especially if your property is hiding a moisture source. If you are having trouble with high humidity in your New Jersey residence or commercial building “hidden moisture” could be a cause. Our crews are trained and experienced in looking for unseen water damage concerns, using advanced technology our team can locate hidden moisture and other property damage you may have missed.

Our SERVPRO of East Windsor crews use many tools and techniques to successfully and thoroughly locate and address New Jersey high humidity and other hidden water damage concerns. Calling local New Jersey SERVPRO professionals can help investigate the source behind high humidity or hidden water damage concerns and inspect for any sign of visible mold or other secondary property damages.

SERVPRO USES SPECIAL DETECTION EQUIPMENT TO FIND HIDDEN WATER DAMAGE

  • Moisture Sensors - Are used to detect moisture in carpets and carpet paddling.
  • Moisture Meters - Are used to determine the actual moisture content of various materials. The moisture tester provides accurate moisture readings that enable our SERVPRO Technician to monitor the drying process.
  • Thermo-hygrometers - Measure both temperature and relative humidity. Capturing these two readings, our SERVPRO Technician using a psychrometric chart can calculate specific humidity, dew point and vapor pressure.
  • Infrared Cameras - Can identify the location and extent of moisture in walls very effectively.
  • Manometers - Allow our SERVPRO Technician to measure the difference in air pressure when creating a negative air pressure environment.

Is Hidden Moisture Causing High Humidity Concerns for Your Local Home or Business

Hidden moisture or water leaks are dangerous because they can cause serious issues like structural damage and mold growth before they are discovered. Excess water and moisture get absorbed in wood, drywall, insulation, and furniture and can lead to warping, stains, bubbling, and structural deterioration.

One possible concern with hidden moisture problems or sustained water damage is an increase in the overall humidity of your property. The EPA recommends keeping indoor humidity between 30 and 60 percent. You may be able to detect high humidity by simply paying attention to potential problem areas in your home, damp basements, high traffic areas, bathrooms, laundry rooms and kitchens with high humidity activities and poor circulation. Telltale signs of excessive humidity include condensation on windows, pipes, and walls. Over time hidden moisture can contribute to high indoor humidity levels and during ideal conditions can cause mold growth and other property concerns to emerge. The possible causes of water damage lurking in your home can originate from many different sources, with varying intensities, contamination levels, and scope of damage. Some of our largest property restoration projects start as small water leaks that cause serious structural and indoor air quality issues over time.

The key to mold prevention is simple: moisture control and enough airflow. If you suspect your home is suffering from excessive high humidity, get in touch with our SERVPRO staff right away. Our Mold Remediation team can inspect your property for mold and water damage, locate the source of hidden moisture and plan a mold removal and remediation process to get your home healthy and safe, “Like it never even happened.”

Signs of mold in your Mercer County home are unpleasant odor, health effects or visual signs of mold growth.

Ask About SERVPRO’s Visible Mold Inspection

Our certified specialist will begin a mold inspection with a few questions for the property owner or manager, to give insight into previous leaks or flood damage and other valuable information to help during the process. They will thoroughly inspect the property looking for signs of damage and in places prone for mold growth. Moisture meters and cameras may be necessary to locate problems in areas that are hidden or less accessible.

If our SERVPRO technicians do discover mold during the inspection and mitigation process, they will evaluate the mold growth and contain any damage to the smallest area possible. They will then physically remove the mold and thoroughly dry any contaminated areas to ensure that the mold does not return. Finally, the technicians will follow established procedures to return the property to a preloss condition. To inhibit the return of mold, SERVPRO uses antifungal and antibacterial cleaners to clean both your home structure and possessions affected by mold. During the remediation process, we can utilize HEPA filtration systems with negative air chambers to stop the spread of spores and contain the mold. Our technicians always attempt to restore rather than have you replace building materials and possessions affected by mold.

When your New Jersey home or business experiences a water disaster issue, or you suspect that high humidity maybe a problem, call our trusted local SERVPRO of East Windsor Property Restoration Service Specialists. Our sophisticated tools can make it easy to determine the presence of hidden moisture and dampness in your local New Jersey property, waiting too long to choose a professional cleanup and recovery service can be a costly and hazardous mistake. Our SERVPRO specialists closely monitor and document all our cleanup, mitigation and remediation steps and make sure your moisture problem is taken care of correctly.

heavy rain and water from storm Many New Jersey properties have experienced flooding and other property water damage from the severe weather in our area, we are here to help.

Spring and summer bring some considerable hazards and potential damage to your local Mercer County property, including severe storms that bring coastal flooding, torrential rains, strong winds and lightning. Other elements that can cause property damage during the spring and summer are high-humidity or brush fire concerns. Your home or business could face any number of potential Spring and Summer property damage events, including mold damage, fire damage, sewage backup damage, or an appliance or plumbing water leak.

Storm and Coastal Flooding Damage Risks

Flooding presents a serious risk to your commercial or residential property. Northeast Thunderstorms and Hurricanes can bring a ton of moisture and tidal surges causing above average amounts of water to affect the local and surrounding areas. According to the National Severe Storms Laboratory, floods kill more people every year than lightning, hurricanes and tornadoes combined.

When it comes to your home or business flooding can lead to dangerous contamination and structural damage including damage to the drywall, contents and support structure. After only 24 hours your property is in jeopardy of additional damages including mold growth and other harmful bacteria. Proper cleanup and restoration services from a professional team is vital to avoiding even further damage.

When you find yourself in need of professional fire or water disaster restoration services or emergency flood cleanup and property repairs for your commercial or residential property, our SERVPRO restoration specialists are here to assist. Spring and summer on coastal and inland New Jersey has a ton of exciting things to do, our area offers great beaches and parks to explore, and additionally there are great events and community functions happening throughout the seasons.

Follow us for great tips on how to protect your property and what to do in the aftermath of a property disaster. Our crews are available 24-hours a day, always here to help with property repairs and recovery services.

What Should I Do When I Notice a Water Loss?  

Your Water Damage event might not be entirely avoidable, so you need to know what to do when you notice that a problem has occurred and continues to threaten the building. This immediate action can help better to protect some of the building's potentially compromised areas and can reduce irreparable damage to essential contents and equipment. Some of the initial steps that you can take in the earliest stages of water loss include: 

  • Move Important Documentation – One of the most critical steps that your staff can take when water loss first begins is to gather sensitive documentation and records and move them to a safe location. Migrating water can be a destructive force for these hard copies. 
  • Notify Our Restoration Professionals – Getting restoration professionals like our SERVPRO team moving on your disaster is also an essential initial step to take. We have staffed emergency lines running 24/7, so you can talk to a real person about the situation and pass helpful information along to our mobilizing technicians.  
  • Stay Out of the Damaged Space – Once water losses have spread into the main areas of the building, it is wise to keep yourself and your staff out of these areas altogether. Not only does excessive foot traffic make restoration more challenging, but with worsening water damage, these individuals could face potential health hazards like shock or slips.

Stock up: Gather and check your disaster supplies and replace or restock as needed. The American Red Cross suggests you pick up at least three days' worth of water and non-perishable food, a flashlight and extra batteries for it, at least seven days’ worth of prescription medication, a cell phone with a charger, and that you have extra cash and spare clothes at the ready. Have an emergency kit with these items you probably already have in your home: flashlight(s), battery powered weather radio, extra batteries to fit each electronic (including cell phone), non-perishable foods (canned goods and dry foods), lots of bottled water, can opener, first aid kit (with a disinfectant), fire extinguisher, blankets, extra clothes, sturdy shoes or boots, clock or watch, whistle to signal for help, important personal items (eyeglasses, prescriptions, etc.), and paper documents such as birth certificates, social security cards, and other significant legal papers.

Stay Indoors: Stay inside and away from windows, skylights and glass doors. Find a safe area in the interior or your property on the lower level or basement. If flooding threatens your home, turn off the electricity at the main breaker. If your property loses power, turn off major appliances such as the AC unit and water heater to reduce damage.

Property Concerns: Inspect your roof and foundation for damage and make necessary repairs. Exterior doors should have 3 hinges and a deadbolt lock that is an inch-long minimum. Cut dead or weak limbs before a storm hits. Remove any limbs hanging over your home that could cause substantial damage if they fall. Likewise, take the time to have trees that could fall on the home removed. Clean rain gutters ensure runoff has a place to go; water that pools and gathers can cause damage especially if a downpour is ongoing.
