Spring is in the air, and so are dust, pollen, and other airborne irritants. Chances are, your multifamily or commercial facility may also be damaged from undiscovered mold, a biohazard, or even hoarding.
This is the perfect time of year to take stock of the work you need to do to get your building in tip-top shape, and engage with an industry-leading partner. Here are some potential concerns to consider as you make spring cleaning plans.
This winter has been one of the wettest on record, which gives rise to a common environmental hazard: mold. If mold spores are in your facility, they can quickly spread in your walls, crevices, and air ducts, causing structural damage and health problems.
ATI follows the ANSI/IICRC S520 Standard for Professional Mold Remediation when developing our approach for handling microbial-related jobs. Our certified mold remediation experts handle the coordination of industrial hygiene protocol and testing, apply antimicrobial treatments, and perform mold remediation in accordance with all industry guidelines for mold removal.
Many buildings have poor air quality because of contaminants from fire damage, construction, excess moisture, poor ventilation, and unclean air filters. Reducing this air pollution is essential: the air that your employees or residents breathe should be clean, odor-free, and allergen-free. Building occupants with allergies and health sensitivities are especially susceptible to air that contains mold, germs, dust, dirt, and grime.
As a National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA)-certified firm and Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA) member, ATI follows industry standards when restoring a facility’s air duct and HVAC system. Our technicians use a variety of tools, such as rotary brushes, air whips, and even advanced technology to improve your air quality and your heating and cooling system’s efficiency.
Property biohazards can take various forms: chemical spills, violent crimes, unattended deaths, and hoarding. These hazards need to be remediated quickly, given the potential risk to others and the structure as a whole.
ATI can identify, remove, and properly dispose of any biohazards and other dangerous materials so your building complies with all safety and health regulations.
If someone has been hoarding in your facility, it can cause more damage than you might expect. Your first step is to remove the contents and debris. Then, you need to assess which services are needed to restore the property, such as decontamination, disinfection, and rebuilding.
A qualified provider, like ATI, will use specialized equipment to ensure that your facility is sanitized. Additionally, we use cleaning products that are environmentally friendly, free of volatile organic compounds, and safe for people and pets.
