Just Because I Cannot See It, Doesn't Mean I Can't Believe It!
Just because you cannot see it, doesn't mean it isn't dirty.
Just as carpets, windows, contents and walls accumulate dirt, dust and mildew; so do HVAC and duct systems. HVAC systems are often overlooked when a cleaning routine is implemented in both residential and commercial properties. Besides common dirt and dust, many other factors can exacerbate the sanitary conditions of duct work including: pet dander, cigarette or cigar smoke, water contamination or damage to the properties' HVAC systems, renovation and remodeling projects, and other harmful contaminants. If the registers that circulate air into a building appear dirty then chances are that the duct systems are just as bad if not worse!
Dirty systems can worsen symptoms in individuals with chronic lung issues, health problems, asthma and allergies. The air quality inside of a home or place of work can have different effects on different individuals, especially the young and elderly. Similarly, the HVAC system that works as the lungs of your building; breathing in air and breathing it back out inside of a property cannot work as efficiently when neglected of the proper cleaning. Clean ducts are also more energy efficient without having to work as hard to cool and heat air filled with dust, mildew, and other contaminants.

Sticky substance dripping from above...
Chances are if you own a Chester County business, you may share space with another business that may vary wildly from your own. You may consider your business to be well-protected from the pitfalls of water or fire damage, mold, you name it, but can you say the same for your neighbors? If you are in a shared space, you also share exposure to your neighbors losses, as we recently encountered in a Collegeville, PA retail space.
Dripping from the Ceiling
We recently encountered two non-food & beverage businesses below a restaurant that experienced a product spill. Even if the product is sweetened and carbonated, it still does what water does, and works its way down! The responsible party was fantastic, jumping into action to take control of the situation, and in doing so, made the best decision: calling SERVPRO of North East Chester County! We responded quickly on a Sunday afternoon, assessed the situation and began executing our plan. We were very cognizant of the affected businesses' needs, and so were able to accommodate work hours to minimize any conflict with their normal business operations, while adhering to our goals for making the situation "Like it never even happened."
In addition to the initial mitigation, we will also be conducting the repairs - not just of the business spaces, but perhaps of the neighborly relationships!
Don't Let Mold Interfere with Your Phoenixville Business
Peeling back a layer in this Phoenixville business revealed some mold growth - but SERVPRO safely remediated!
If you own a Phoenixville, PA business, your office or shop space is likely beautifully finished with different colors and textures to establish an aesthetic that complements your business theme or motif. You may have different types of materials that help establish this: like baseboards, wall paneling, etc. While these complementary textures can sure make the most of your space when working in tandem, they may also act as vapor barriers that can trap moisture and provide ideal conditions for mold growth. If your employees or customers have been complaining of musty, mildew smells, or there are other sensory observations that have you concerned about mold growth, the best thing that you can do for your business is to call SERVPRO of North East Chester County. We can locate the source of the issue, and will put together a holistic plan to address the problem. We follow a rigorous procedure that is recommended by the IICRC, to safely and thoroughly remediate microbial growth. Give us a call to provide a free estimate, and we will explain the safest, most efficient way to keep your Phoenixville business happy, healthy, and profitable!
Phoenixville Commercial Remodel Uncovers Mold Growth
If you find mold in building materials while remodeling your Phoenixville business - call us right away!
Let's face it: some of the commercial spaces in Phoenixville, PA are in need of a face-lift. There are a lot of older buildings with commercial rental spaces that may be in need of a little TLC. As a business-owner, you may or may not own the space where you conduct your business, but no matter your specific situation, you want your space to be beautiful and your employees and customers happy and healthy. Some of the older buildings in Phoenixville and the surrounding Chester County areas have older construction, and ideal spaces for mold to grow - like in between building materials. If not properly installed, with vapor barriers, or even if there is excessive moisture or humidity, mold can grow in tight, unseen spaces, like between layers of wall covering. When a business owner decides to freshen things up and begins a remodel, they may unknowingly expose mold laying in wait. This should be an automatic RED LIGHT for all further disturbances of the area until you can get SERVPRO of North East Chester County on the scene to inspect and remediate the growth.
Product Spotlight: Deodorization Equipment
A few of the tools from our deodorization arsenal that will make a BIG impact on even the largest commercial spaces.
Let's face it: there are sometimes applications within commercial properties that require deodorization treatments. Fires, product mishaps, and biohazard scenarios are some examples of situations that may require intense deodorization to restore your commercial property to a healthy, comfortable environment for your staff and customers. SERVPRO of North East Chester County has the experienced technicians and specialized equipment to knock out nasty odors and get your business smelling fresh and clean again!
Our Ozone Generator technology is the most modern, technically advanced available today. Although it requires a period of vacancy during operation, a relatively short period of free air flow after the treatment with fresh air circulating will regulate the breathing air and you will be able to witness the hard work the machine has put in to eradicate bad odors by filtering the air in an incomparable way. Truly the best way to impact a large area and get it smelling fresh and clean.
Our Titan Photocatalytic Hydroxyl Generator is another heavy-hitter for eliminating odors, filtering germs out of the air, and leaving purified, fresh air behind. UVA rays emitted from a photocatalytic lamp pass through the anatose-coated reactor sleeve, forming electron hole pairs that react with the water and oxygen in the air. These form hydroxyl radicals that, when dispersed by a fan, decompose organic and inorganic gases and air pollutants into carbon dioxide and water. Plainly put: it filters and purifies the air in your business safely and effectively!
Our Electro-Gen Thermal Fogger has a high-capacity for deodorizing structures, garments, automobiles, etc. after fires or from other malodors. It produces a true "dry fog" that can employ a range of scents from neutral to cherry to leamon berry - whichever you prefer - to not only eliminate bad odors, but replace them with the fresh scent of your choice!
And for a fast, high-intensity treatment of up to 50,000 cubic feet of commercial space, the Vaportek Vapor Shark is our ideal tool for the job. This application is ideal for manufacturing facilities, disaster restoration, animal shelters, large grow rooms, restaurant grill exhaust/party rooms, sewer/septic backup & sewage treatment plants, or casinos/large meeting halls.
Whatever your commercial deodorization needs are, the solution is clear: call SERVPRO of North East Chester County and we will get your business smelling fresh, clean, healthy, and comfortable for your employees and customers!
