Can Mold Remediation Be Needed During the Winter Months in Eagle Rock Commercial Properties?

SERVPRO Technicians Tackle Mold Damage in Business Properties 365 Days Per Year

In Eagle Rock, the cooler temperatures during the winter months do not give any respite to the danger of a mold infestation. There can easily be a problem if a commercial structure has poor ventilation, unresolved leaks, and elevated humidity levels. 

SERVPRO techs can handle commercial mold remediation in Eagle Rock properties and diagnose the reason for the mold growth. The technicians frequently find mold inside insulation, which along with keeping cold air out of the building, can also harbor moisture that creates an ideal environment for mold colonies. 

The technicians will take multiple readings using infrared cameras, which show cooler or warmer areas behind walls and ceilings. Cooler regions are designated where probably collections of moisture reside. Equipment such as probes can locate water and possible mold colonies under flooring. Various devices allow the techs to rapidly scope properties rather than remove small sheetrock portions to inspect for potential mold growth. 

Once the size of the mold infestation gets determined and the technicians mitigate the issue within the structure, they can give tips for avoiding mold damage in the future: 

  • Keep interior humidity below 60% if possible. 
  • Install exhaust fans in employee/public restrooms
  • SERVPRO offers deep cleaning services, take advantage of the carpet cleaning to avoid mold growth within the fibers, particularly around entrances and high traffic areas

Keeping the structure in good repair by having the roof and gutters inspected regularly. Ask the maintenance crew to report any signs of water damage they notice so small leaks can get addressed before turning into significant water and mold damage problems. 

Even though this area of the state does not usually have deep freeze cold temperatures, with the typical range being from the 60s in the day and 40s at night, mold growth can happen. Please feel free to call SERVPRO of Eagle Rock / South Glendale for any mold remediation services at (323) 255-1000. We will make it look "Like it never even happened."
