- Set up an emergency response plan and train employees how to carry it out. Make sure employees know whom to notify about the disaster and what measures to take to preserve life and limit property losses.
- Compile a list of important phone numbers and addresses. Make sure you can get in touch with key people after the disaster. The list should include local and state emergency management agencies, major clients, contractors, suppliers, realtors, financial institutions, insurance agents and insurance company claim representatives.
- Decide on a communications strategy to prevent loss of customers. Post notices outside your premises; contact clients by phone, email or regular mail; place a notice in local newspapers.
- Consider the things you may need initially during an emergency. Do you need a back-up source of power? First-aid? Do you have a back-up communications system?
- Keep duplicate records. Back-up computerized data files regularly and store them off-premises. Keep copies of important records and documents in a safe deposit box and make sure they’re up-to-date.
- Identify critical business activities and the resources needed to support them. If you cannot afford to shut down your operations, even temporarily, determine what you require to run the business at another location.

Whether your property just experienced a heavy rain intrusion, a common appliance malfunction or hazardous plumbing leak. Commercial water damage cleanup and restoration can be complicated, it most often requires a set of detailed steps to make sure the water is properly extracted, cleaned up, dried and mitigated, when these steps aren’t taken, and moisture continues to plaque your building mold growth will often occur. Mold grows quickly and can spread throughout a property in as little as 24-48 hours. Any commercial property can quickly become infested with mold if a source of water is present, the key to preventing excessive mold growth is to control moisture. That’s why it’s important to act quickly if your commercial property experiences a water damage or you see any signs of hidden water damage or visible mold.

Mold Damage to Your Commercial Warehouse or Building?
Mold is a microscopic, airborne fungus that exists all around us, it occurs naturally in our surroundings and usually reproduces by releasing spores into the environment. In nature, mold plays an important role in the decomposition of organic material. Mold requires both organic material and a consistent source of moisture to grow. Many materials in homes and business contain the organic materials and under the right circumstances can be conducive to mold growth. When excessive moisture accumulates indoors, drywall, wood, paneling, ceiling tiles, carpeting, insulation, paper, cardboard, fabric, upholstery and even paint will encourage mold growth. If there is a consistent water source, mold will continue to colonize and break down organic material into dusty, dirt-like matter. Neglecting mold damage for an extended period can cause unnecessary damage to your home and risk possible health concerns to occupants. It’s never too early nor too late to address commercial property mold damage.
When excessive moisture accumulates inside buildings or on building materials, mold growth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains unaddressed. It is impossible to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment. However, mold growth can be controlled indoors by controlling moisture indoors.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends these tips to prevent commercial property mold damage
Ensure all leaky plumbing is fixed; Correct all noticed wet spots;
Completely eliminate condensation through insulating or increasing air circulation;
- Reduce the moisture level in the air and add ventilation to reduce humidity;
- Maintain indoor humidity level below 60% with a goal of 30-50%;
- Conduct routine building and HVAC inspections;
- Provide proper drainage and sloping to eliminate wet foundations.
What is Mold Remediation
Mold remediation is the process of finding, containing, and removing mold and damaged materials from the affected area and the air around it. It’s crucial to contain the damaged areas, because spores are microscopic and can easily spread to other areas through the air or by attaching themselves to clothes or objects throughout the remediation process. SERVPRO mold removal specialists are specially trained using techniques to contain the damaged areas and mitigate the spread of mold, using negative air pressure and physical barriers to seal off the infected area, including ductwork during the remediation process.
Moldy items such as furniture, carpeting and inventory are cleaned if the infestation is minor or removed if it’s extensive. In this commercial warehouse our mold remediation team setup on-site clean rooms to more efficiently remediate damaged materials and contents. Damaged parts of drywall are removed, replaced, and repainted. Large storage racks can be hand cleaned with antimicrobial agents, all items in the area must be cleaned and sanitized, even if they don’t have visible mold. Mold can be very illusive and can grow behind wallpaper, inside books or files and other hidden areas. Our SERVPRO professionals have advanced equipment and top tier training to remediate mold and return any commercial property mold damage back to a healthy, safe and operation work environment.
Commercial Mold Remediation
The Environmental Protection Agency has a guide for Mold Remediation in Schools and Commercial Buildings on their website.
SERVPRO Stops the Spread of Mold During the Remediation Process
SERVPRO mold remediation technicians are train to use the highest restoration industry standards, mastering Applied Microbial Remediation through IICRC courses. We employ the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) developed protocols to contain and remove active mold colonies. Our crews also use EPA registered antimicrobial products to treat surfaces after removal to inhibit additional growth. During remediation, we protect our employees and your occupants from the hazards of mold remediation by creating zones where we remove and bag the mold and contaminated debris. Physical barriers provide one kind of protection, and we also install HEPA filtered exhaust ductwork and use negative air pressure to prevent airborne mold and residues from infiltrating unaffected areas of the building.
Containment of the Affected Area
One of the main concerns, during a remediation project is the dissemination of airborne mold spores. When a remediation project is initiated the first step is to set up containment or isolation of the affected area. Containment will help our SERVPRO professionals control the spread of these spores while assisting the remediation process in returning the affected area to normal healthy levels. The act of removing or disturbing a mold source during the remediation process tends to distribute large quantities of mold spores into the air. That’s why proper containment is so important to the safety of the occupants and undamaged areas. Cross contamination is a major concern for our crews and our teams are trained and provided the highest level of safety equipment and personal safety gear to process your mold remediation safely.
When setting up containment of the work area, the first step is to install a HEPA Filtered Negative Air machine. This is a fan which pulls air from the affected area and exhausts the contaminated air outside of the structure via flexible tubing or ducting. Doing this will begin to draw the airborne mold spores away from the airspace, eventually creating a negative pressure environment.
The second step is to install physical barriers in the work area, creating zones. This is most typically done with the use of heavy plastic. The main goal when creating this physical barrier is to completely isolate the work area from any adjacent, non-affected areas. All HVAC systems or shared airways between other rooms would be taped or covered in plastic, and all electrical outlets and light fixtures would be covered. Basically, any area that could allow air flow between the mold infested area and another non-affected area should be properly sealed.
If you fear that your commercial building is contaminated with mold or has had a recent water damage that was not properly mitigated, call the professionals at SERVPRO of Southwest Brooklyn to help. Our highly-trained and IICRC certified Brooklyn and Queens mold remediation specialists are here to help, to explain and assess your property’s commercial mold cleanup and remediation needs.

Types of Contaminated Water and Categories of Water Damage
One of the first things to do when faced with water damage is determine what kind of contamination you’re dealing with. According to the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), water can be contaminated by agricultural pollution, oil pollution, sewage and wastewater, radioactive substances, harmful chemicals, and various other materials. It can sometimes be difficult to determine the type and extent of water damage affecting your home or business. That's why it's best to call a local property disaster restoration company like SERVPRO of Southwest Brooklyn to fill in the blanks. Our Professional staff will come and inspect your damage and customize a removal, cleanup and restoration solution to get your property damage reversed as quickly and effectively as possible.
Different types of contaminated water pose different risks, but the longer the water stays in a home, the more severe the property damage it will cause and the greater the threat to your health. Also called black water, Category 3 water is water from sewage backups and overflowing rivers that contains various hazardous contaminants, sewage, and/or toxic debris. According to the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IIRC) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all water originating from sea water, ground or surface water, rising rivers and streams, and wind-driven rain from hurricanes and tropical storms is considered Category 3.
When Brooklyn and Queens Summer and Fall storms are coming to Flatbush, Clinton Hill, Jamaica, Ozone Park or Cobble Hill it’s important to be prepared, our SERVPRO teams are ready and always prepared to handle any size property disaster. Calling SERVPRO after you experience flood or water damage from coastal flooding, severe thunderstorms or basement flooding, can be the difference from a quick cleanup and mitigation or costly restoration, construction and mold remediation services.
KNOW YOUR ZONE & WEATHER TERMINOLOGY
When living in a coastal community such as Brooklyn or Queens, it is incredibly important to know where the flood zones are located, and to prepare for severe weather-related hazards. Weather terminology and warnings are important tools to knowing when to prepare for a storm and how to keep your family healthy and your property safe from disaster.
- Severe Thunderstorm Watch: Be Prepared! Watches are typically issued 12-48 hours before a storm is set to hit. This is to advise the public of the possibility of a thunderstorm including; heavy rain, flooding, strong winds and possible hail.
- Severe Thunderstorm Warning: Take Action! Warnings alert the public 2-24 hours before a storm occurs. Issued for hazardous weather that can cause “significant inconvenience, and if caution is not exercised, could lead to life-threatening situations.”
- Hurricane Watch: Be Prepared! Watches are typically issued 12-48 hours before a storm is set to hit. This is to advise the public of the possibility of a Hurricane (sustained winds of 74mph or greater) including; heavy rain, flooding, strong winds and possible hail.
- Hurricane Warning: Take Action! Warnings alert the public 36 hours in advance of tropical storm-force winds. Issued for hazardous weather that can cause “significant inconvenience, and if caution is not exercised, could lead to life-threatening situations.”
SAFETY TIPS BEFORE A STORM ARRIVES:
Gather and check your disaster supplies and replace or restock as needed. The American Red Cross suggests you pick up at least three days' worth of water and non-perishable food, a flashlight and extra batteries for it, at least seven days’ worth of prescription medication, a cell phone with a charger, and that you have extra cash and spare clothes at the ready.
Have an emergency kit with these items you probably already have in your home: flashlight(s), battery powered weather radio, extra batteries to fit each electronic (including cell phone), non-perishable foods (canned goods and dry foods), lots of bottled water, can opener, first aid kit (with a disinfectant), fire extinguisher, blankets, extra clothes, sturdy shoes or boots, clock or watch, whistle to signal for help, important personal items (eyeglasses, prescriptions, etc.), and paper documents such as birth certificates, social security cards, and other significant legal papers.
Stay inside and away from windows, skylights and glass doors. Find a safe area in the interior or your property on the lower level or basement. If flooding threatens your home, turn off the electricity at the main breaker. If your property loses power, turn off major appliances such as the AC unit and water heater to reduce damage.
Inspect your roof and foundation for damage and make necessary repairs. Exterior doors should have 3 hinges and a deadbolt lock that is an inch long minimum. Cut dead or weak limbs before a storm hits. Remove any limbs hanging over your home that could cause substantial damage if they fall. Likewise, take the time to have trees that could fall on the home removed. Clean rain gutters ensure runoff has a place to go; water that pools and gathers can cause damage especially if a downpour is ongoing.
