Mold in South Florida is a fairly common occurrence. There’s so much moisture and humidity in the area that it is almost too easy for mold to take root.
This is true of both residential and commercial properties. In a home, you might choose to ignore mold (although you shouldn’t). Maybe you never even noticed the mold in that back corner in the guest room.
However, when it comes to commercial buildings, they are held to a higher standard. A mold problem can easily become a money problem for you if it isn’t handled and properly removed and restored.
The EPA does have guidelines for mold removal and protective actions that apply to both schools and commercial properties.
There are many different things that can lead to a mold problem, and it can grow just about anywhere. You see, all that mold requires to reproduce is air and water. In South Florida, we have air and water everywhere! The places that could be affected by mold include:
If there is a surface, mold can take root and continue to grow and spread until it is removed and disposed of properly. The best way to mitigate mold indoors is to do things to proactively reduce the moisture in the air and keep mold at bay. Here are the most common reasons that a commercial building might experience a mold problem.
Mold spores are everywhere and once they take root, they grow quickly.
We can help you tackle your mold problem. Our team is certified and trained to handle mold safely and effectively.
This includes finding and inspecting the mold, creating a plan for remediation and mold removal, carrying out the plan, restoring the area, and cleaning up afterward.
Mold should be remediated in an effort to prevent employees in the building from being exposed to and negatively affected by it.
Mold can be killed, but it also must be thoroughly cleaned up and disposed of. There are specific ways to handle this and it must be done by a certified specialist. That’s where we come in.
Proper safety equipment and following the required guidelines are a must. Mold is no joke and should be taken very seriously. Once the mold has been removed and cleaned up, you should also take steps to be proactive against mold so you don’t experience the same problem in the future.
You can’t always solve it all or completely prevent mold, but you can make a concerted effort that will go a long way.
During mold removal, specific safety measures need to be taken. This is for the safety of the workers, as well as everyone else in the building. If possible, the contaminated area should be separated from the rest of the building. Appropriate filtration – specifically HEPA filtration – should be set up for the duration of the mold removal process. You can also use HEPA filtration in your HVAC systems to be proactive. Those working with mold are required to use certain PPE while doing so. The primary PPE needed for the task are:
The EPA is a great resource for understanding the minimum needs for safety, as well as how things can be remediated, treated, or disposed of.

We have a 24/7 response team available to you anytime you need it. While mold does not generally happen suddenly like most water emergencies, we’re still here for you. Just give our team a call and let us help you get rid of the mold and restore the affected area!
Having an inspection completed is the easiest way to determine how extensive the mold removal process might be. An inspection allows us to check out the mold and determine whether it’s spread and just how far it has spread.
Once we’ve had the opportunity to inspect the damage, we can create a detailed estimate so you know just what to expect from the process.
The process is pretty straightforward.
Here is a quick overview of how it works:
Our plan includes covering the required safety protocol, taking care of containment, handling air filtration requirements, safely cleaning and removing mold, and properly restoring the affected area to its original state.
Once we’ve finished the mold removal and any restoration needed, we’ll also clean and sanitize the surrounding areas just to be sure we remove all of the mold spores from the space.
