When your business has an occurrence of mold, many problems can arise, most importantly, health concerns to your employees, clients, and yourself.
The proper removal from a company providing commercial cleaning services is important to get your building back on its way once again. The first step to mold remediation is to know a little bit about mold.You can learn about phase I environmental site assessments at Andersen Environmental.
Molds grow anywhere there is enough moisture present and spreads, or reproduces, through the use of spores. These spores can be transported by air until they find a place to stick and start to grow.
Most cases of indoor mold are only a visual nuisance, giving an appearance of uncleanliness, but are not often a health risk. Large outbreaks of mold may cause health risks, and will require immediate mold remediation from a company providing commercial cleaning services.
The next step to take if you think there maybe mold growing in your business's building is to have a commercial cleaning services company come out and test the building. If they find mold, they may need to have the mold sampled and tested. Once they have tested it, they can determine the proper mold remediation procedure.
The proper mold remediation procedure depends on the type of mold and the severity of an outbreak. Some outbreaks can be remedied by the use of simple household cleaners.
Other minor outbreaks may even be solved by an increase of sunlight or ventilation. Larger outbreaks can be cured by adding non-porous building materials to reduce the chance mold will be able to grow back and attach itself to a surface.
