Concerns When Mold Is Found In A Daycare Center In Knoxville

Commercial Concerns When Mold Is Found In A Daycare Center In Knoxville Battling mold on your own is unwise.

Mold Damage In A Daycare Center


When you operate a business catering to small children and their families, you see issues arise if you experience a mold outbreak. Parents express great concern, and you fear local or state agency inspections lead to consequences including possible closure. Battling mold on your own is unwise. SERVPRO has the resources to help you remove the mold you have today and prevent other infestations in the future.

Daycare centers feature many places where mold damage appears, causing worry for Knoxville licensed child care facilities. Bathrooms, water fountains, kitchens, craft rooms, and diaper changing areas all have plumbing. Sinks, toilets, and the pipes that link them to the water and sewer or septic system threaten to feed mold outbreaks through spills, overflows, backups, and leaks. We offer schools and commercial building owners our skills as experts certified in the mold remediation protocol created by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Although no reputable mold remediation company can promise to eliminate mold, SERVPRO promises to contain and remove current colonies and to work with you to significantly limit the possibility that the fungal growth returns. Mold spores hide everywhere, lighter than air, floating on air currents. Moisture awakens the spores, causing them to proliferate. Almost any surface is a good host for mold growth, and daycare centers have many areas when mold gains a quick foothold.

When we arrive, your expectation is that our technicians scour all areas of your center to find visible mold. We contain the outbreaks, using physical barriers like plastic sheeting to keep the mold from spreading. Large amounts of mold mean we bring in the air scrubbers, negative air pressure machines with filtering technology that restrain mold or spore movement. Areas that supported mold growth receive disinfection using products SERVPRO Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians learned about during comprehensive training leading to certification.

Finally, our staff locates all sources of moisture and develops a plan to stop the water from invading the daycare. SERVPRO looks for leaks and areas where spills remain unattended. The areas identified are dried thoroughly using air movers and dehumidifiers. Plumbing malfunctions find resolution and cleanup protocols enforced for puddles and pools. With no water for food, we stop mold in its tracks.

SERVPRO of Rocky Hill / Sequoyah Hills / South Knoxville awaits your call to respond to mold damage issues. Dial our operators at (865) 862-8907 who schedule a visit from our mold remediations team.
