Why Testing in a Ucon Business for Mold Now Saves Money Later
Mold Testing Can Prevent Expenses from a Closed Enterprise
Testing for mold is a time-consuming and somewhat costly procedure that most businesses understandably try to avoid. In addition to the direct costs of the procedure, many customers may feel uneasy about the process, even if the building turns up completely clean. However, SERVPRO knows that mold testing is vital for the survival of business for multiple reasons, and if the process is not completed when necessary, serious consequences can result. This is true especially for service-sector companies, which directly rely on customers coming in the door and safety inspections turning up positive. Ultimately, while mold testing is a complicated process for most businesses, it far outclasses the costs associated with the consequences of its neglect.
Most importantly, mold testing in Ucon stores and restaurants is necessary to pass regular safety inspections. The U.S. government takes mold damage in businesses very seriously, issuing steep fines to those who choose to ignore it or go through improper channels. SERVPRO has a lengthy list of certifications and licenses which are necessary for completing mold remediation and testing jobs according to all regulations, as, without them, our clients could find themselves in legal trouble. If mold is ignored or goes unnoticed long enough, a store may even be condemned and closed by court order, often permanently.
Apart from legal costs and fees, there are other financial reasons to opt for mold testing when necessary. If our testing finds a source of mold growth in its early stages, removal and remediation will be far less costly than if you waited to find it on your own. Our sensor technology, much of which utilizes delicate thermal imaging, can identify mold before it becomes noticeable by smell or even by sight. Without formal testing, the most mold is only found long after it's had a chance to grow into large spreading colonies.
