Giving Mold the Boot

8/3/2018 (Permalink)

You've likely heard it before: most buildings can become prone to mold growth at some point or another. But why your place in San Angelo? While you rack your brain for reasons why your commercial building has seen a recent mold invasion, take a look at some of these three quick facts, as well as some tips on how to prevent this troubling organism in your facility.

1. Strong Fungi

With the ability to grow on any organic surface, mold is one powerful fungus. However, you can combat this resilience by learning more about the organism itself. Mold can travel through reproductive spores in the air – making it impossible to see with the naked eye. Part of mold prevention means maintaining an awareness of its many destructive capabilities.

2. Stronger Maintenance

Mold doesn't just lay claim to your delicious workplace meals. Look beyond the company refrigerator and into subtler places where moisture could become trapped. If your building has fallen victim to past water damage, you could be dealing with some uninvited guests. Start off on the right foot with mold prevention by remaining aware of all maintenance checkups, which could help you catch a problem in its beginning stages. If a repair is in order, address it promptly so no outside moisture lets itself in.

3. Clean Spaces

You also likely know the importance of a clean working environment. Rarely do employees enjoy a filthy fridge or a dirty bathroom; however, these are some of mold's favorite locations. Put a stop to mold growth by cleaning all rooms regularly, including tough spots such as the backs of sinks and toilets, near pipes where condensation builds up, and in any other place that can harbor moisture.

There are many preventative steps building owners in San Angelo can consider when approaching a fungal issue on the property. Educate yourself on mold prevention and all the basics so you can address the problem and get back to your facility and your business. For more information, visit SERVPROOfSanAngelo.com
