How Water Damage Can Cause Mold to Grown in Your Plantation Library
Lingering Water Causes Mold Growth in Your Plantation Library
Libraries hold hundreds, if not thousands, of novels and publications. Because of how challenging it can be to prevent storm damage in our coastal community, our team has a rapid response to these emergencies. Keeping your building dry, especially during the hurricane seasons, can help you to reduce the likelihood of mold development and other harmful effects.
As challenging as it might feel to prevent unexpected roof and structural damage that leads to water penetration, the threat of mold damage to Plantation businesses like your library should be a strong motivator. Mold develops in as little as 48 hours under the right conditions, and growing colonies can spread quickly to surfaces and materials. Our SERVPRO professionals can help to address these threats in the earliest stages when you first discover colonization and have remediation tactics to help your property through every stage of recovery.
Your primary investment in a library rests in the pages of the literary works stocked on the shelves. Because heightened moisture typically exists throughout the year, we must diligently prepare for mold in the Ft. Lauderdale area to develop at any time. With the excessive damage that can occur to construction materials, carpeting, and even furniture in the building, we heavily rely on the expertise and trade experience of our remediation contractors (MRSR2994.) This division can carefully address controlled demolition issues, document drying, and other threats common to mold recovery.
One of the best methods of reducing the widespread mold damage and ruin of the books and publications you have in the library is establishing defenses against the spread of spores, contaminants, debris, and other particulates. Containment protocols like the creation of a negative air space bordered with 6mil plastic sheeting prevent the spread of active spores while our remediators work to eliminate mold colonization in the damaged areas.
The library sees foot traffic every day, and the presence of mold can create a hazardous atmosphere for your readers until the situation gets resolved. No matter when you find mold growing in your building, our Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians of SERVPRO of Ft. Lauderdale South can help. Contact us anytime at (954) 776-2000.
