Ventilating School Structures in Bellmore with Commercial Mold Damage Concerns

Commercial Mold Damage Bellmore
Mold growth can adversely affect the indoor air quality (IAQ) of a school's environment. There is a growing body of concern about the health consequences of mold. This is an essential consideration for a safe school structure. Bringing in an independent hygienist to assess the scope of harm is equally crucial. These specialists are often called upon to verify the IAQ after mold remediation has completed. Building construction pre-1980 can often inhibit ventilation, which makes mold growth issues less likely to go away by themselves.

You may need to get professional commercial mold damage remediation into your Bellmore school if there is significant growth. The environmental protection agency (EPA) has a list of guidelines available to property managers of schools that can go alongside the report of an independent hygienist. Together these guides can help decide whether or not mold growth is manageable in-house. If there are widespread mold growth and a lack of proper ventilation, you may benefit from SERVPRO mold remediation technicians that have access to industrial equipment for creating airflow and dehumidification in school structures.

Mold is a living organism that feeds on materials common to indoor structures. The presence of moisture can result in the rapid reproduction of mold colonies, which then causes issues with indoor air quality as well as sanitation standards. Wiping away the visible signs of mold damage does not address the underlying problems, which is why many building managers find that mold issues can return after cleaning. SERVPRO technicians can locate and address moisture concerns in school structures that have little natural ventilation. Often, mold remediation requires the dispersal of anti-microbial agents using foggers, sprayers, and HEPA filtered air scrubbers.

One effective method of removal is to create artificial ventilation throughout the structure. SERVPRO achieves this by placing box fans or axial air movers at open points of the structure. These draw in a supply of dry air from outside. By strategically placing additional air moving equipment throughout the structure leading to an exhaust opening, we can exchange damp air for dry air. This method is exceptionally effective at removing both microscopic spores from the area and unwanted moisture, which prevents mold from returning after service. This is an open system that can be very effective under the right weather conditions.

Making a careful assessment of your mold remediation requirements should be done at the first sign of microbial infestation. Contact SERVPRO of Bellmore / Wantagh at (516) 809-9600.
