Response to Commercial Mold Damage that Affects Bridgewater Conference Centers

Mold can develop anywhere, and if you manage a conference center, it can be a thorny issue if you fail to find a lasting solution. Although to a great extent, mold is an aesthetic issue manifesting as musty odor and unsightly patches on walls or ceilings, it is also associated with health problems so people might be apprehensive from using your facility if mold damage is apparent. Seeking a solution should start by identifying the cause.

Unresolved moisture issues lead to commercial mold damage incidents in Bridgewater since spores occur naturally, and any organic material is a great food source for mold colonies. Unfortunately, a wide range of sources can provide the moisture that fuels the infestation in your conference center. Narrowing down to the actual cause might require expertise. The most common moisture sources include:

    •    Water intrusion from outside the structure
    •    Condensation
    •    Water spills
    •    Unidentified leaks

Various approaches can help identify the moisture source, the easiest being observation. In case of a water spill, wet areas are likely to be visible. Other moisture sources require different approaches. Our SERVPRO technicians use equipment such as thermo-hygrometers to check humidity and temperature levels in the air confirming whether condensation is likely. We also have thermal cameras, which help identify wetness or leaks in concealed areas.

Identifying the source of moisture is only a preliminary step to resolving mold issues.  Finding a way to stop the moisture source is essential. Extraction helps deal with water spills while repairs are necessary for leaks. If the problem is condensation, improving ventilation helps. In a conference center, upgrades such as installing extractor fans might be necessary to remove the moisture people produce when the facility is in use.

Removal of mold colonies is essential after addressing the cause. Various procedures, including cleaning surfaces and removing heavily infested porous materials, are crucial. Our SERVPRO technicians HEPA vacuum surfaces before damp wiping affected areas with detergent.

For a long-term solution to mold issues, you need to know the source. Call SERVPRO of The Bridgewaters at (508) 697-5439 help deal with the issue, “Like it never even happened.”
