SERVPRO Can Help with Mold Damage and Restoration
With all of the precipitation the southwestern region of Morris County receives, likely, moisture can eventually find its way into your restaurant building, requiring you to call in a professional restoration company such as SERVPRO. Water can make its way into your eatery through a roof leak, old window or door seals, or because of elevated indoor humidity levels. Once H2O finds its way into your restaurant’s structure, it can cause several problems, including being the source of mold growth.
Fungi only need moisture, the ideal temperature between 60 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit, an organic food source, and 72 to 48 hours to grow and develop. The following items found inside your restaurant could become food sources for mold:
- Wooden Items: The chairs and tables inside your dining room can become a source of mold growth if they retain water for more than 48 hours.
- Drywall: If any of your walls contain sheetrock, then the paper backing could become a source for a fungus to develop.
- Paper Products: The dry storage area inside your restaurant is usually the home to all of your paper products, including your paper towels and napkins. Most restaurants also store many of their foods and other products in boxes that could become a source for fungi.
- Food Products: The food you are selling itself can become a source for mold if it gets too wet or elevated humidity levels. A fungus that starts growing on a food item could spread to other areas of your restaurant’s structure.
- Dust and Other Debris: Any food crumbs on the floor of your kitchen or dining room, dust, and other loose debris can also cause mold to grow if moisture enters your building.
