Commercial When Raw Materials In Your Red Wing Factory Are Damp, Don't Wait To Call The Professionals At SERVPRO Water vapor condenses on surfaces throughout your factory, and mold spores also find their way into already existing air currents.

Damp Raw Materials Can Lead To Commercial Mold Damage In Factories In Red Wing

The quality of your products dramatically depends on the condition and quality of the raw materials you use in your Red Wing factory's production lines. Goods that arrive damaged because of lapses in circumstances that let your shipment get rained or snowed on during transport might not ever make it to the assembly line.

However, keeping these raw materials, even if never used, might cause problems for you later, including the development of mold damage inside your Red Wings facility. Because moisture always travels to drier conditions, any moisture that ruined your raw materials during shipment steadily evaporates into the air.

Water vapor condenses on surfaces throughout your factory, and mold spores also find their way into already existing air currents. These spores waste no time in activating and starting their growth cycles. Not only do the raw materials start to get moldy, but various locations in your factory also seem to be suffering from mold infestation, too.

SERVPRO wants to do everything possible to make your factory's interior “Like it never even happened.” While there are several steps in achieving this for you, the first is to reverse the problem. We first check your entire facility with our thermal imaging devices. These small machines visibly reveal where water vapor has condensed, allowing us to concentrate our efforts in these areas and mitigate mold damage before it starts or shortly soon after. We use powerful desiccant machines because they are significantly effective at stripping the air of excess water vapor.

On metal or vinyl surfaces, a solid wipe-down with an antimicrobial cleanser often kills mold growing there, but the spores can set up new colonies. Other areas, such as office spaces, locker rooms, and lobbies often contain softer materials in their furnishings. These more porous items can also become moldy. Lowering the amount of water vapor helps but we need to do more to resolve the problem before mold damage can cause permanent problems. We use specialized techniques learned during IICRC training that eliminates these spores from upholstery, office dividers, and window dressings. While the initial incident may have been contained inside your factory, microscopic spores can spread unhindered in the air and on either people's clothing or inanimate objects.

SERVPRO of Cannon Valley works in Kasson, Zumbrota, and Warsaw, helping other businesses maintain safe working conditions for their employees. Mold damage affects not only factories but can also cause health effects in people. Prevent both by calling us at (507) 334-2565 as soon as you detect the presence of mold.
