Is Stained Wallpaper a Sign that My Salon Needs Mold Removal?
Local Long Beach beauty shop owners are concerned about mold removal in their buildings
Long Beach salon owners want to keep their premises in tip-top condition. A clean, professional space is vital for making a positive first impression on customers. Customers who are happy tip more and are more likely to return and recommend you to their friends.
If you want to keep your salon clean and healthy, it is essential to call a Long Beach mold removal company as soon as you suspect a problem. There are many signs of potential mold problems. The state of your wallpaper is one such sign.
What can wallpaper or wall murals tell me about mold?
Mold is a fungus that grows wherever it finds moisture and a food source. Drywall, plaster, and wallpaper are all viable food sources. Mold on or behind your wallpaper might cause:
- Deep green, black, pinkish or even white fuzzy mold growth on the surface
- Paper peeling away from the wall
- Damp stains on the paper
- A musty odor
If you see mold growth, you know you need remediation. However, peeling, stains, or an odor are also signs, so SERVPRO recommends that you take action if you see any of those symptoms.
What should I do if I need mold removal?
If you suspect a mold problem in your salon, call us immediately. We can send a team of trained mold specialists to inspect and assess your property and carry out professional remediation. Our technicians can:
- Test for moisture (mold loves moisture) using moisture meters and probes
- Set up containment so mold spores cannot travel throughout your salon
- Remove visible mold colonies utilizing a range of antimicrobial products and actions
- Dry the area to discourage further mold growth
- Deodorize afterward to ensure your salon smells fresh
What if the wallpaper cannot be salvaged?
Our teams can help with re-hanging wallpaper if necessary. It is always our aim to restore rather than replace, so you can rest assured that we will not suggest replacing the wallpaper unless needed.
