Syracuse Proprietors Can Use Mold Inspection to Protect Their Premises from Fungus

Looking after your Syracuse storefront is essential. A clean, welcoming, and well-organized storefront offers a fantastic welcome to customers and encourages them to stick around, buy, and come back. Of course, as a business owner, you ensure your store is clean – but have you remembered to check for fungus?

One way to protect your property from fungus is by carrying out regular mold inspection in your Syracuse store. Some inspections can be done by you or your staff, but there are times when you need to call a professional remediator.

What mold inspections can staff carry out?

There are three things your staff or cleaning crew should look for:
    •    Visible signs of mold, such as mold colonies or damp patches on floors and ceilings
    •    Potential mold risks such as dark corners or where water is pooling on floors or around faucets
    •    A moldy smell that does not go away

When should you call the professionals?

You should call SERVPRO as soon as you notice any of the telltale signs of mold. Even if the outbreak appears to be small, it is better to call us. Cleaning the fungus yourself can actually make things worse:
    •    Over-the-counter cleaners can add moisture, which makes regrowth more likely
    •    Rubbing or scrubbing can dislodge spores and encourage them to find a new part of your store to set up camp
    •    Walking in and out of the area means spores can hitch a ride on clothes and shoes and spread throughout your premises

What does professional mold inspection entail?

SERVPRO teams have all the equipment to carry out thorough mold inspection. We start with a visual assessment and then move on to using a range of instruments to test for humidity, moisture, and the presence of water on the surface of walls and ceilings. Once we have readings to work from, we can wipe and scrub away the mold. We use containment and sometimes negative air to lower the risk of spores spreading. We also dry the area after to make it less welcoming to fungus.

We leave your shop Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned. For professional mold inspection, call SERVPRO of North Onondaga County at (315) 457-3432.
