Mold from water damage. Don't let mold stop operations. Keep your company open!

Mold is invasive. It finds its way into commercial spaces more often than a person may realize. Proper removal takes time, supplies, and proper procedure. So how does one prevent it so it’s not an issue?

Here are some tips:

  • Deal with the leaks

Whether that be coming from the roof or due to plumbing, it is important to deal with them immediately. It’s going to prevent further water damage too.

  • Use a dehumidifier

Your establishment’s humidity must always be maintained and kept at no higher than 50%. Standard. We understand how it can be challenging to keep track of information like this, so your bet is to install commercial dehumidifiers.

  • Ensure proper ventilation at all times.

Keep your air vents and air filters clean, and that the enclosed areas of your establishment are free of moisture.

  • Deal with flooding after you stop the flow.

Don’t let stagnant water sit too long and seep into your wooden walls, flooring, and furniture. That’s when Mold begins to form and spread.

By keeping these tips in mind, we are sure that your commercial establishment will be free of both mildew, smell, and mold. However, even with the mold control practices, these pesky fungi can still strike and be destructive.

Don’t stress, you can ask your professional mold remediation team to make a detailed plan for you that includes the costs and dates of the entire procedure.

To plan for the unexpected, you will need to set aside a budget for the following:

  • Mold Inspection Cost
  • Mold Testing Cost
  • Mold Mitigation Cost

Feel free to practice the preventive measures that we have shared with you above. You never know, with these steps you might not even need a mold specialist in the first place. But if you do, you can call on us!
