When You Find Mold At Work

3/5/2020 (Permalink)

Owners of commercial buildings everywhere need to take steps to prevent the growth of black mold and other forms of fungus. Without the proper protection plan, your business may have to shut down to thoroughly clean affected areas. Find out how to protect your commercial property and prevent mold buildup today.

Proper Ventilation

Mold occurs naturally, and it requires moisture, food and sometimes heat to grow. A poorly ventilated area quickly collects moisture and heat, so any natural food source is likely to grow mold - that can be wood, leather, drywall, carpet, and even caulk or grout! Installation and use of proper ventilation systems will help to prevent these high-moisture areas from becoming mold breeding grounds. This will help you solve any moisture problem in your building.

Complete HVAC Servicing

Whether you use a furnace, air conditioner or both throughout the year, HVAC systems themselves can also harbor mold growth. Ductwork is often coated in dust and exposed to warm, damp air. Commercial air conditioners typically use condensation pans. Standing water in these pans is likely to grow mold, even black mold. Even worse, your HVAC system can spread those growing mold spores throughout your building!

Inspect Plumbing

Leaking pipes are one of the most common causes of water damage in a commercial building. Routinely inspect your sinks, toilets and water lines to avoid any dripping or condensing pipes that may be growing mold in your basement, utility room or wall cavities. This will point you toward the critical areas of mold cleanup.

Choose A Professional Remediation Company

The best line of defense is an expert mold removal company that is faster to any size disaster. Whether you’ve already found mold in your commercial building or you’re looking for ways to prevent this costly experience, an expert company can assess any black mold damage, cleanup your interior air and restore your professional building for a safe and friendly work environment.
