University Park Commercial Sites Use SERVPRO for Mold Inspection and Remediation

MOLD INSPECTION on a Clipboard Commercial Entities Rely on SERVPRO for Mold Remediation in the Greater University Park Area

The Threat of Mold in Dorms of GSU in University Park

The presence of active mold colonization on the campus of Governors State University, or any institution here in the University Park area, could cause health effects to anyone exposed. With hundreds of students occupying each dormitory, this threat could quickly become out of control in terms of both the exposure levels and managing the spread and cross-contamination of affected areas. Maintenance departments might have the ability to manage smaller isolated incidents, but widespread mold and fungal colonies should get left to trained and qualified AMRT Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians.

A common culprit for microbial threats in larger commercial structures like this would be a leaking plumbing fixture, but our SERVPRO team can help begin mold damage testing and cleanup in University Park dorms immediately. With college campuses, every situation can escalate quickly, especially ones with ramifications like mold growth and the volatile organic compounds colonies can produce.

Sometimes acting preemptively to get ahead on tasks like remediation can protect students enrolled on campus and the faculty and staff of the school as well. We utilize third-party professionals to conduct and oversee the functions for mold testing and sample collection, and we can determine if water damage our SERVPRO team is working to dry out and restore has become mold damage in areas unseen by our technicians. In most cases, this environmental sampling can occur with minimal controlled demolition. Upon completion of mold remediation at a large commercial site such as this, an industrial hygienist can inspect and validate the results of our work.

Remediation and cleanup can begin quickly upon the physical discovery of mold or confirmation of the environmental testing. We have multiple efficient and direct colony removal approaches. With the installation of containment barriers, our team can remove active colonization through abrasive cleaning, sanding, controlled demolition, and antimicrobial solutions without affecting more space in the dorm than the damage already does. Our efforts to minimize our presence can prevent relocating students unnecessarily and help the job get completed fast.

Because of the public relations and reputation disaster that widespread mold growth in one of the dorms can become, you can count on the fast response and expertise of our SERVPRO of Matteson-Homewood team. We can prevent cross-contamination and migration of the threat while we make mold damage “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call at (708) 747-9925.
