Does Your Short Term Rental Have Mold?
When customers come to your bed & breakfast, inn, or hotel, they expect a completely clean and refreshing stay. What they do not expect to see or smell is a mold infestation. If your Corpus Christi East hotel has mold damage, you should hire a restoration company. SERVPRO of Corpus Christi East can help eliminate any growth so your guests can have a clean and comfortable stay.
Hotels usually rely on repeat customers and word of mouth referrals to remain in business. Mold in your hotel can lead to loss of customers because of negative reviews. Our SERVPRO team can take the right measures to eliminate the mold.
When you notice the signs of a mold present in your hotel, it is vital to seek assistance from professionals. Although mold treatment devices and cleaners are available in hardware stores, you cannot be sure which ones are effective. Additionally, you do not want to expose yourself to mold unnecessarily. Professionals have proper training and advanced mold remediation products and equipment.
What causes mold to grow?
Mold enters a building as tiny spores that need moisture, nutrients, favorable temperatures, and oxygen to start growing, digesting, and destroying. Molds grow best in areas with lots of moisture or humidity. Mold can grow on many surfaces, including:
- Ceiling tiles
What does mold remediation involve?
Mold remediation is the process of removing or cleaning up mold from an indoor environment. When removing mold, it is vital to understand that when you disturb it, its spores can get into other areas of the building, creating new mold problems. Before we remove the mold, we can build a containment using negative pressure. We also wear the right personal protective equipment and follow the stipulations of the IICRC with regards to mold removal.
Our team can eliminate the mold by physically removing the affected porous materials and drying the environment effectively. We can also use disinfectants to remove some molds. Direct contact between certain molds and some disinfectants inhibits or slows mold growth.
If you need to remove mold from your hotel, call SERVPRO of Corpus Christi East. Our staff is certified in mold remediation and mold removal by the IICRC.
