Commercial Mold and Mildew Remediation, Asheville, NC

Commercial Mold and Mildew RemediationRestorationMold contamination can seriously affect your business’s bottom line. If not properly treated, it can damage your commercial property and its contents—as well as pose a threat to employee or customer health by creating allergic or asthmatic reactions. Mold can also present an underlying issue of moisture and dampness, which can lead to a more extensive infestation. Even structural damage can occur when mold decomposes building materials such as walls, beams, and insulation. All of this can result in lost productivity—and possibly lost inventory or business.

We provide a full range of high quality commercial mold and mildew cleaning and remediation services. We work with discretion and strive to minimize disruptions to your business.

Mold and Mildew—Understand the Difference

Mildew is considered an early-stage mold, both types of fungi. They have many similarities, although they look different. Mold is typically green or black and has a fuzzy appearance. If you find mold in one location on your property, this probably indicates a larger infestation. Microscopic mold spores are present in the air entering through open doors and windows and heating and cooling ducts. They can take hold on any damp surface within 24–28 hours under the right conditions. Mildew is usually white or gray and appears powdery. It grows flat and spreads just as quickly under the right water and moisture conditions.

The best way to stop the growth of mold and mildew is to control the level of moisture in the building, which can occur from a leaky roof, improper ventilation, a damp basement, or a workspace or restroom with high levels of humidity. Organisms settling in a damp environment will grow almost anywhere. Until you have extracted all water and dampness from the area and thoroughly cleaned up the existing infestation, mold and mildew will continue to spread.

Our Proven Mold Remediation Process

The experts at WARREN RESTORATION have the knowledge and expertise to take care of any mold or mildew problem at your business. Our technicians are highly trained and are certified by MICRO, the nationally recognized Mold Inspection Consulting & Remediation Organization, and by IICRC, the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification—the organization that certifies and sets the standards for the inspection, cleaning, and restoration industries.

Of course we take all necessary health and safety precautions—both for themselves and our clients—including wearing protective gear and sealing off areas to be remediated to minimize the spread of mold spores. We also use safe, effective cleaning solutions and state-of-the-art, industry-grade equipment.

Our step-by-step process will safely and effectively take care of mold and mildew at your property:

  • Testing and assessment. Our inspection includes a variety of tests and assessments to determine the presence of mold and mildew—which are not always visible to the naked eye—and the extent of the infestation. We check areas where moisture, dampness, and humidity are present and search for hidden mold around windows, in ductwork and wall cavities, and under carpeting.
  • Moisture removal and dehumidification. The first step in remediation is to remove dampness at its source. Ventilation, proper insulation, fans and dehumidifiers, and even natural sunlight and fresh air all help the drying process.
  • Cleaning, sanitization, and decontamination. To thoroughly clean and treat infested areas, we may use dry fog combined with EPA-approved chemical solutions that eliminate the mold and associated odors and prevent further growth.
  • Cleaning and restoration. We clean and restore furnishings and belongings that can be salvaged and properly dispose of those that cannot be treated or cleaned.
  • Repair and renovation. We repair and renovate structural components damaged by mold, so you have to deal with just one company for the entire job.

Our online DASH system lets you and your insurance provider view all aspects of your claim—photos, notes, quotes, and other relevant documentation—at any time. This facilitates the claim process and helps ensure you receive the maximum benefit to cover the damage to your business property.
