Keep Your Hyannis Commercial Property Free From Mold

4/25/2024 (Permalink)

Summer is on its way, and unfortunately, mold comes along with it. The warmth and dampness of Cape Cod makes your business a prime candidate for excessive mold growth. By not being vigilant for the warning signs of mold, you could be putting the structure of your commercial property in major jeopardy. More importantly, mold buildup may put the health of your clients and employees at risk. Our Team at SERVPRO of Mid-Outer Cape Cod see extreme mold growth constantly. Here is a few tips from the mold experts at SERVPRO:

  • Keep your environment free of excessive humidity

A dehumidifier is one of the best investments you can make for the health of your commercial building. Mold requires constant moisture to thrive, so snuffing out the air moisture in your building stops mold dead in its tracks. Circulate the air in the building with fans or HVAC units. However, if you find that you have a mold issue, shut off HVAC units immediately and call a mold remediation service.

  • Dust Often

Dusting off shelves, appliances and other objects in your building not only keeps the place looking clean, it's also an important measure towards preventing mold. Mold feeds off of the organic dust tissues. Less dust means less food for mold spores. We recommend thoroughly dusting most every area in your commercial property on a weekly basis.

  • Find and Fix Leaks ASAP

Feel pipes around your property for moisture. Also, be on the lookout for telltale signs of a leaking pipe; stained walls, warped walls, buckling floors and peeling wall paint. If you suspect you have a leak, call a plumber as soon as possible.

  • Clean Wet Areas

Though cleaning up an indoor puddle from a spill may be an obvious measure, be on the lookout for high-moisture areas that may be less apparent. Check under appliances, tables or behind any area where a spill may be forgotten. Any unchecked dampness can become a major mold problem, don't wait until it becomes more apparent and turns into a mold infestation.
