Dormitory Residents Need Not Dread the Possibility of Mold Damage in Montgomery
Certified SERVPRO Technicians Remediate Mold Infestations Thoroughly
Alabama’s capital city is home to a number of institutions of higher learning. Students moving to Montgomery for the school year rely on their schools’ assurance to provide clean and safe dormitory accommodations. Mold issues can break this promise unless reliable mold remediation services are procured.
Group living situations can provide the perfect environment for commercial mold growth in Montgomery. Shared bathrooms and shower areas in a busy dorm mean that the water runs literally 24 hours a day. The architectural beauty of a historical residence hall can hide decades of water damage in hidden or inaccessible areas. Refrigerators, air conditioners, tea and coffee pots, vaporizers and humidifiers, and the inevitable spillage from knocked over beverages all provide the one thing mold spores need to multiply -- moisture.
SERVPRO technicians have the training and the experience to help school building management services to attack and win the fight against mold damage in the dormitory. Our mold remediation crews receive training in Applied Microbial Remediation and hold the title of Specialists in the field when they complete the courses. We follow the EPA protocols for mold remediation in schools and commercial buildings. Our capacity to respond to even a massive mold infestation in a multi-wing and level residence hall is well-established, the association with our nationwide group of restoration companies permitting us to scale up our efforts if required.
Our project managers assess the situation and coordinate the crews and equipment needed to contain and remove the mold. As students live, sleep, study, and play near the areas we address, it is critical to contain the spread of moldy debris. SERVPRO employs a number of strategies, including physical barriers like heavy duty plastic sheeting and advanced technologies such as negative pressure air scrubbers that filter the air and exhaust contaminants safely out of the spaces.
The SERVPRO remediation team removes the mold colonies and any porous structures the multicellular mold filaments, hyphae, invaded. Non-porous surfaces are cleaned thoroughly of the mold and then treated with antimicrobials to inhibit future mold growth.
Before SERVPRO considers a structure remediated, the location of moisture sources must be located and eliminated. In a dormitory, this can be a broad range of things. Rather than being overwhelmed by the search, our employees are eager to find and repair the leaks and share strategies to limit moisture in other ways. Bathroom exhaust fans, inspections of refrigerators and AC units for leaks and clogs, as well as vigilance in keeping rooms and common areas free of unattended spills and overflows is essential.
