SERVPRO Offers Fast and Efficient Mold Remediation to Downtown Businesses

Mold is the last thing you want to discover at your place of business. Not only can mold cause health effects to the employees and customers, but it can also cause structural and aesthetic damage to your property. SERVPRO can help you by promptly carrying out mold remediation of your Downtown Chicago commercial space to prevent these effects.  

SERVPRO’s IICRC certified experts establish a full containment zone with negative air pressure during mold remediation of your Downtown Chicago property. The goal is to localize the damage to a specific area and not let the mold spread to the unaffected parts of the structure. SERVPRO technicians also apply antimicrobials and antifungal agents to prevent the recurrence of the mold damage once the restoration is complete. 

Different Types of Mold That SERVPRO’s Mold Specialists Encounter in Downtown Chicago Commercial Buildings

SERVPRO's experts deal with several types of mold in Downtown Chicago buildings. Some of the most common ones include-

  • Aspergillus- Grows in an oxygen-rich and damp environment. It can tolerate lower temperatures better than other molds, and hence most attic mold is of this type. There are over 40 different species of Aspergillus that can grow indoors. 
  • Aureobasidium Pullaria- Also called the pink mold, is most commonly found in high humidity areas. Establishments such as restaurants and eateries stand at a higher risk of developing this mold in washing areas and walk-in cold storage.  
  • Stachybotrys Chartarum- Also called the black mold. Contrary to what other restorers might lead you to believe, it is no more dangerous than other types of mold, and SERVPRO never uses this scare tactic on our customers.
