FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
+ IF ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSE IS NEEDED, SHOULD I CONTACT MY INSURANCE FIRST?
Insurance companies prefer you call a commercial restoration company like Cotton GDS to assess the damages that may be caused by mold, asbestos, lead, hazardous materials, or traumas. Hiring a remediation team as soon as possible can be crucial to prevent further damages to your business.
+ How can I tell if I have mold in my business?
If you notice a wet stain or dark spots on walls, ceilings, roofs, or pipes, especially in an area that’s suffered water damage, it could be mold. Mold is particularly fond of dark, cool, and humid areas such as basements and is generally first identified by its musty scent. Another indicator of mold presence is an increase in allergic reactions, cold symptoms, or respiratory issues among your employees. If you suspect there is mold in your building, contact the professionals at Cotton GDS for mold removal.
+ When should I test my commercial property for asbestos or lead?
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires a hazardous material survey on any commercial property, including residential properties used for commercial purposes, prior to any demolition or remodel. All tests must be performed by licensed and experienced inspectors. If the results test positive for lead or asbestos, Cotton GDS will start the abatement process immediately to reduce more damage.
+ How can I dispose of hazardous or medical waste correctly?
If your company or facility produces any type of hazardous waste, you must dispose of it properly and safely. A professional restoration company, such as Cotton GDS, is trained on the proper disposal procedures and can perform the task or guide you through it.
+ What does biohazard cleaning entail?
Biohazard cleaning focuses on completely cleaning, sanitizing, and deodorizing the area where a traumatic event has taken place. Biohazard cleanup is a challenging job that requires the disposal of potentially hazardous materials, like blood and body fluids, by experienced professionals. The Cotton GDS restoration and cleanup experts know that the proper handling of the crime or trauma scene is essential to the safety of everyone involved.
