Commercial Mould Removal

8/10/2019 (Permalink)

A recent call from a restauranteur to check out an old restaurant he purchased in hopes of giving it a new life resulted in quite a large mold job for SERVPRO. Upon entering this abandoned space, it became clear immediately this was a mould remediation job for the experts! So we went to work! With mold covering the walls, the bar area, baseboards and crown “mold”ing (pun intended), our crew had to suit up with PPE including respirators and Tyvec suits to be sure they were protected! Mold remediation is a very tedious job for a home but when it is a commercial property like a restaurant, it is even more so.  Containment must be set up so as to not contaminated unaffected areas. All items with mold exposure had to be disposed of properly. And then at the end of the demo and clean up, an industrial hygienist was brought in to ensure that the commercial property checked out!

Mold remediation in a commercial property is a tedious yet rewarding job, especially when we get to see a building be brought back to life!

Got Mold?

Mould can affect your health and can also cause significant damage to your property. Fortunately, SERVPRO of Barrie has the training, protective gear, and specialized equipment necessary to handle your mould problem.

Call Your Local SERVPRO of Barrie

The first step when you suspect mould may be an issue in your home or business should always be to call the pro's at SERVPRO Barrie. We are on call 24/7 to ensure you always get the help you need.After answering a few questions that help us determine the extent of the damage we can determine which personnel and what equipment will be best for the job.

Inspection & Damage Assessment

We will carefully inspect your property for signs of mould using technology designed specifically to detect mould and hidden water sources. Mould feeds on cellulose and water which can be hidden from plain view.

Mould Containment

Various containment procedures will be placed to prevent the spread of mould and isolate the contaminated area with physical barriers and negative air pressure to keep the mould spores from spreading during the cleanup process. 

Air Filtration

Specialized filtration equipment captures microscopic mould spores out of the air. SERVPRO® technicians utilize powerful air scrubbers and HEPA vacuums to prevent the spread of these mould spores while the mould remediation is in progress.

Removing Mould & Mould-Infested Materials

The mould remediation process is dependent  on the amount of mould growth and the type of surface the mold is living on. Antifungal and antimicrobial treatments will be used to eliminate the mould and to help prevent new mould from forming. Sometimes the removal of mould infested materials like drywall is necessary to properly remediate mould growth. Whatever is takes is what we will do!

Cleaning Contents & Belongings

When necessary SERVPRO of Barrie will clean your furniture, curtains, and other items that may have been affected by mould.


Depending on the level of damage and mould growth some form of restoration may be needed. Whether it be something small like painting or a bigger job such as new floor or drywall, SERVPRO Barrie will take care of it all.
