Steady Appliance Leaks Can Cause Mold in Rego Park Laundromats

11/16/2019 (Permalink)

Washing machines and dryers stacked up in a room with a basket of  laundry and detergent on the floor. Mold won't stand a chance in your Rego Park Laundromat with SERVPRO on the job.

Has mold taken over your Rego Park laundromat ? SERVPRO will kick it right out the door.

Your Rego Park laundromat makes money when people can readily use the washing and drying machines as they need. With water-fed appliances like the line of washing machines you have positioned along one side of the building, a small leak can be hard to pinpoint exclusively, but can also lead to worsening conditions from the prolonged moisture like microbial threats. 

Because many of these situations are unique and can feature any of thousands of microorganisms, mold damage in a Rego Park laundromat is best left to professionals like our SERVPRO team. With exposed materials like linoleum flooring, baseboards, and drywall, any of these areas can host spreading colonies and allow the organism to spread beyond the initial water damage spot. 

Successful remediation begins with an assessment of the property to determine the scope of the damage. This inspection includes determining the migration of the active colonization, as well as the source of the water damage that fed the problem initially. With many machines positioned closely together, we might have to pull units away from the walls to identify which machine or hose connection has the leak which lead to mold growth. 

Addressing mold concerns starts with determining how severe colonization has become in affected surfaces. Baseboards are not complicated to replace, making it often more cost-effective to detach this trim rather than dry it out and use remediation tactics like soda blasting to remove the colonization. We have a team of certified and licensed general contractors that can oversee the controlled demolition of materials like the baseboards to allow access to the wallboard behind. 

Because units get moved around and pushed more often than they should, it can cause cracks and missing portions of your linoleum tile floor. Water penetration beneath these microbe-resistant tiles can not only spell trouble for the flooring itself but leave a door open for mold growth beneath them. The application of sporicides can kill growing colonies forming at these vulnerable positions while our SERVPRO team works to continue addressing active colonization in other areas. 

We understand how damaging the presence of mold can be for your customers and your business, so our SERVPRO of Forest Hills / Ridgewood team aims to prove We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster. We can help when you call (718) 381-3702.
