Mold Damage to Your Commercial Warehouse or Building?
Mold is a microscopic, airborne fungus that exists all around us, it occurs naturally in our surroundings and usually reproduces by releasing spores into the environment. In nature, mold plays an important role in the decomposition of organic material. Mold requires both organic material and a consistent source of moisture to grow. Many materials in homes and business contain the organic materials and under the right circumstances can be conducive to mold growth. When excessive moisture accumulates indoors, drywall, wood, paneling, ceiling tiles, carpeting, insulation, paper, cardboard, fabric, upholstery and even paint will encourage mold growth. If there is a consistent water source, mold will continue to colonize and break down organic material into dusty, dirt-like matter. Neglecting mold damage for an extended period can cause unnecessary damage to your home and risk possible health effects to occupants. It’s never too early nor too late to address commercial property mold damage.
When excessive moisture accumulates inside buildings or on building materials, mold growth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains unaddressed. It is impossible to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment. However, mold growth can be controlled indoors by controlling moisture indoors.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends these tips to prevent commercial property mold damage
- Ensure all leaky plumbing is fixed; Correct all noticed wet spots.
