SERVPRO Provides Immediate Mitigation for Water Damage and Mold Removal in Your Cresskill Store 

A clean break room is meaningful to your employees. Whether your business is small or a large corporation in Cresskill, it is a crucial part of your company. In this store, the refrigerator ice maker leaked, allowing water to pool underneath. After remaining unnoticed, mold grew in the tubing, wall, and the floor under the fridge. 

Can the Drywall Be Saved? 

Whenever there is moisture, mold can develop quickly. Mold spores absorb the water and swell rapidly. As the spores grow, they shoot out hyphae, which attaches to the surface of various materials. Mold colonies love porous material like drywall as it absorbs water well. It also means that the drywall's impacted areas may need to be removed unless the damage is exceptionally light. Controlled demolition allows the removal of the infected areas. SERVPRO technicians understand how to mitigate mold damage in Cresskill. Restoration is preferred over replacement, and if the drywall can be saved, our techs can do it.

Returning Your Breakroom to Pre-loss Condition 

In this situation, we were able to scrub the tile floor to remove the mold. The drywall was repaired once the moldy portions were removed. The refrigerator was repaired by a local serviceman who was able to replace the tubing. Everything got sanitized with EPA registered antimicrobial and antifungal agents. 

Mold can spread rapidly. If left untreated, this breakroom's mold could have spread into the cabinets, along the walls, and onto the content. Food items and other appliances could have been affected too. If you suspect mold infestation of any size, call in the professionals who can provide fast mold remediation.
