How to Find a Company for Commercial and Industrial Mold Remediation

Thursday, December 4th, 2014 by Lisa Pixley

In your line of work, you simply cannot afford to neglect the air quality inside of your building. For those who manage a commercial property, the quality of the air deserves attention—particularly if you or someone in your building suspects mold growth. Mold can keep employees, tenants, and clients feeling ill or aggravate pre-existing conditions that make staying in your industrial building difficult and unpleasant. When you suspect mold—either from the appearance of mold, damp spots around the building, a recent flood or leak, or even just a musty feeling in the air—it’s time to find a company for commercial and industrial mold remediation. But how do you locate the right company for the job?

A Thorough Inspection, Cleaning, and Elimination

One of the things you should look into when searching for a company for commercial mold remediation services is the process that technicians go through when deciding on the steps to take for mold remediation. Unfortunately, there are contractors out there who simply don’t take enough pride in their work. Some companies are looking to make a quick buck and, while they may do as promised to remove the mold, they won’t take the steps to make sure the source of the problem is eliminated as well.

Mold growth in your business will probably not go away after a simple cleaning. If there is mold in your building, it is because moist conditions—caused by poor ventilation, lack of dehumidification, a leak in the home, inadequate drainage from your HVAC system, or any number of issues—allow for mold to develop. A good contractor will promise to locate the source of the problem and help you find ways to keep it from affecting daily operation in the future.

Industry Experts

You should also make sure that you only trust the job to industry experts. Experts in the indoor air quality industry recognize the importance of air quality to the operation of your business, and know that the work they do is vital to your company’s well-being.

Advantages of Commercial Mold Remediation

Friday, June 13th, 2014 by Lisa Pixley

One of the greatest threats to indoor air quality and building material, both in the commercial sphere and the residential sphere, is the growth of mold and microbacteria. These biological pollutants are especially problematic inside ventilation systems, where they can develop unseen and release toxic spores into the air that enters work spaces.

Mold growth can begin inside your business for a variety of reasons. If your building has suffered water damage, you should call for air quality specialists to look for mold growth as soon as possible. Problems with your HVAC system’s condensation drainage will lead to excess moisture that encourages mold development, and leaks in plumbing will contribute to the problem.

At the first indication of biological growth, call for commercial mold remediation in St. Paul, MN from Alpha Air Corporation. We will solve the trouble with the best technology available, and your satisfaction is guaranteed.

Mold remediation advantages

The health of your employees, customers, and clients is paramount to running a successful business. The dangers that mold presents to a workplace can be high, and include respiratory illnesses and flu- and cold-like symptoms. To maintain a workplace that is happy and healthy, you need to have any biological pollutants removed quickly and safely.

There’s also the issue of health codes. Excess mold in a building that could endanger the well-being of the people inside can be a health code violation, and that can mean a forcible shuttering of your business until the mold threat is removed. This isn’t a situation that you ever want to find your company facing.

There are some cosmetic advantages as well. Aside from dangerous spores, mold creates unpleasant musty smells that can make a workplace intolerable. Part of mold remediation is removing these repellant odors to return your business to its former condition.

Mold remediation for commercial space goes beyond simply removing the offending growth: professionals will locate the source of the growth and eliminate it so the problem does not return.

It’s vital that you hire commercial indoor air quality specialists to perform this task. Trained technicians familiar with commercial mold remediation in St. Paul, MN understand the needs of businesses, and will also have NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaners Association) and IAQA (Indoor Air Quality Association) certification that will ensure you receive a thorough job to keep your business safe and up to code.

With Alpha Air Corporation, you have a guarantee of quality work. All our technicians have certification from the NADCA and the IAQA, and we approach our work with the professionalism that you expect as a business owner yourself. Contact us immediately if you suspect mold infestations in your workplace.

Why Are Commercial HVAC Systems Modular?

Friday, May 30th, 2014 by Lisa Pixley

At Alpha Air Corporation, we specialize in improving the air quality of homes and businesses through a variety of services. One of the most important—and complex—services we provide is work on the ventilation systems of commercial buildings, which includes duct cleaning and HVAC system decontamination.

Because of our extensive work with commercial cooling and heating, we often field questions from clients about them. One we hear often is, “Why are commercial systems modular?” Since residential HVAC systems almost always come as a single unit that hooks up to the ductwork, the commercial design of multiple modules seems a bit unusual. We’ll explain why commercial systems are designed this way.

Call us for service for your commercial air conditioning in St. Paul whenever you need cleaning, mold remediation, or restoration. We are proud members of the NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaners Association).

Why commercial systems are modular

One of the basic reasons that commercial systems are designed in separate modules is for easier construction and transportation. Some commercial HVAC systems are simply enormous; they have to be in order to cool down such large spaces with so many people. Making them modular allows for systems to be constructed and shipped in smaller parts.

In terms of the actual installation, modular systems allow for the job to go a piece at a time: this “phased installation” creates much less disruption or shutdowns, since the work must not all be done at the same time, but spaced out for greater convenience. A residential HVAC system can be installed in a few hours, and people don’t tend to worry about a “loss of business” in their homes. For a company, needing to close down for days during installation could be disastrous; phased installation removes this problem.

Modular systems allow for easy expansion as well. If a business adds on more space, or converts storage areas into offices and other work spaces, it will need a larger cooling load. Instead of purchasing and installing a new unit, a business can simply add on another 25-ton module to the current configuration.

Take good care of your commercial air conditioning in St. Paul, MN

A commercial AC must not only keep your customers, clients, and employees cool; it must also work without obstructions and the development of dust, dirt, or possibly worse contaminants. Schedule regular ductwork cleaning for your business’s HVAC system, and make sure that you only look to certified cleaners with a long history of working on commercial systems. The complexity of commercial HVAC makes them out of reach of residential cleaners.

Call Alpha Air Corporation today to schedule ventilation system cleaning for your business. We are also available 24 hours a day for emergency work.
