“Is that mold?” No one wants to ever hear that question. Especially so when it’s being asked in regard to your business. Mold growth can be detrimental to a business and the costs to deal with it after the fact are often pretty high, but luckily you have some preventative measures that you can take for your business to lessen the likelihood of that happening to you.
Proper ventilation and airflow – It’s important to keep the air in a business from getting stagnant. For comfort of course, but also proper ventilation allows your HVAC to do its job of removing moisture from the air. This is especially important in places like kitchens and laundry rooms where humidity levels are typically higher than usual
Walk throughs – You should regularly walk your entire property to check for any signs of leaks in pipes or other water sources and make sure that if you find any they are fixed promptly, cutting off water to that area until then if necessary.
Look out for signs of water damage – Similarly to inspecting your water sources for leaks you should also be on the lookout for signs of water damage like water spots or walls/floors that are warped. It’s important to address these issues as soon as possible because even if they seem like they’re dry already, if not dried properly there could still be moisture hidden inside that can lead to mold growth in a matter of days.
You can’t always prevent mold from growing but following these tips can definitely lessen the likelihood of you having to deal with these issues. If you do find yourself battling against mold in your business, give us a call and our team of skilled technicians will be there!
