Ask The Experts: How Can I Keep My Commercial Building Free From Mold?

7/29/2021 (Permalink)

When water damage strikes your office or commercial building, the results on your bottom line can be devastating. What can be worse though, is not having the water cleaned up effectively, which can lead to mold.

So what are some great ways to keep mold from happening in your office or commercial building? Today we will look at 2 things you can do!

1. Thoroughness is Key!

Mold spores can travel quickly through your HVAC system, so a great place to start is here! Getting it cleaned, changing or cleaning the filters, and keeping it in the great form will help stop the spread of mold spores. It is also vital to clean and maintain the vents as well to make sure you are doing all you can to keep the mold from spreading.

2. Humidity <3 Mold!

Commercial buildings tend to usually have a LOT of people, and people cause condensation, so it is important that you dehumidify.

Having a dehumidifier in areas where you have high concentrations of people for long periods of time and in other areas where moisture is prevalent can make a huge difference in reducing the moisture in a building, which will also make the environment less conducive for mold to thrive.
