A Moldy Situation: How To Fight Commercial Mold

Mold growing on a wall. Mold removal is not a DIY project.

Mold spores are a part of life in Chalfont, PA, but they do not have to be a part of your commercial property. From carpet cleaning to disinfecting surfaces, fighting mold isn’t a one-person job. Controlling the moisture inside your building prevent mold damage, but that's only the tip of the iceberg. Here are four steps that can keep your property mold-free.

1. Just Keep Cleaning
Mold needs two conditions to thrive: darkness and dampness. Regularly cleaning your facility is essential to prevent excess moisture from building up and causing more mold to flourish. Make sure your commercial building is as dry as a desert, especially after a flood or other unexpected influx of water.

2. Don't Forget the Vents
Always inspect your air ducts for evidence of mold. They're one of the places where mold likes to hide the most. Airflow should be smooth and free. Regularly cleaning your air ducts can be vital to preventing mold problems.

3. Remember: It’s a Jungle Out There
The carpeting may warm up your commercial property, but it's also a desirable place for many microscopic creatures to call home. Chief among these unwanted residents is mold, and that is why it is crucial to do a deep carpet cleaning to evict mold spores from your carpet for good.

4. Know When It's Time To Bring Out the Big Guns
If you don’t want mold in your property, you may want to invest in a HEPA vacuum. It has a filter that your standard vacuum does not and that allows it to pick up virtually every itsy-bitsy thing that you cannot see.

Mold removal is not a DIY project. It can fester on surfaces that are invisible to the naked eye. That's why deep mold cleanup, including carpet cleaning, is required to pick up any little remnants of mold in your property. If you suspect that your commercial property has mold problems, seek out a mold removal professional to quickly return your business to normal.
