Commercial Buildings and Mold Concerns

3/1/2022 (Permalink)

Mold on AC vents can make everyone in the building sick Improper maintenance in a commercial building can lead to mold growth.

Are you concerned about indoor exposure to mold in a Commercial Building? 

Building managers, custodians, and others who are responsible for commercial building and school maintenance should use this reference for potential mold and moisture remediators.

 Mold can be found almost anywhere; it can grow on virtually any organic substance, as long as moisture and oxygen are present. There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, foods, and insulation. When excessive moisture accumulates in buildings or on building materials, mold growth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains undiscovered or unaddressed. It's impossible to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment. However, mold growth can be controlled indoors by controlling moisture indoors.

All molds have the potential to cause health effects

All molds have the potential to cause health effects. Possible health concerns are an important reason to prevent mold growth and to remediate/clean up any existing indoor mold growth.

Since mold requires water to grow, it is important to prevent moisture problems in buildings. Moisture problems can have many causes, including uncontrolled humidity. Moisture problems may include roof leaks, landscaping or gutters, or delayed maintenance.  

SCHOOLS

Moisture problems in portable classrooms and other temporary structures have frequently been associated with mold problems. 

Remediation should be done immediately. Call SERVPRO of East Coral Springs at 954-725-6400.
