Air Quality In Businesses

Commercial Air Quality In Businesses SERVPRO can help with any commercial water damage or commercial mold growth concerns.

Intrusion of water into your place of business can result in mold growth.  Water intrusions can result from Sioux Falls storm damage, plumbing or equipment failures, long-standing leaks and poor humidity control. 

When water intrusions are not addressed right away, the resulting damage can present increased risk of harmful mold growth.  Some amount of mold spores are normally present in most environments.  If the humidity and moisture levels in a water-damaged business environment are not promptly returned to normal, mold spores may grow and multiply.  Organic materials found inside a building, such as wood, paper, drywall and insulation, provide food sources for mold to flourish.  Excessive mold growth can lead to the business having indoor environmental conditions that pose a health threat.

To have SERVPRO evaluate your Sioux Falls commercial restoration needs, give us a call at (605) 213-3303.
