During Remediation of Raleigh Commercial Properties, Several Approaches are Necessary to Eliminate Harsh, Musty Odors 

While there are pressing concerns with possible mold growth in your business or office building, one of the most formidable obstacles after microbial threats is a lingering musty odor. Comfortable working and environmental conditions for your staff and customers need achieving as fast as possible after a mold event. 

Identifying Mold Growth and Remediation Needs

Mold remediation in Raleigh commercial properties begins with identifying the extent of the damage. Knowing where mold colonies exist, and the scope of the damage provides data to implement the ideal mold removal tactics as soon as possible. 

Deodorization and Filtration Equipment to Help

Removing odors can often be a process that involves several tools and techniques. While odor removal might be one of the final stages of remediation, several pieces of equipment are necessary, including:

  • HEPA Air Scrubber – Air scrubbing is one of the most direct methods of managing airborne threats like odors and microbes. Membrane filters trap particles as small as 0.3 microns. 
  • Hydroxyl Generator – Using UV, these devices can clean the environment of airborne threats and contaminants. Onboard HEPA filtration can also trap microbial particles to reduce the spread of mold colonies.
  • ULV Foggers – These units can often be ideal for reducing the present odors rather than eliminating them. These portable devices are an extension of placing counteractant beads and granules at high-airflow locations.

Mold can be a formidable presence in offices and commercial buildings in Raleigh, especially in the rainier times of the year. As challenging as these organisms can be to remove, lingering odors can also be a significant obstacle in returning the building to pre-mold conditions.
