How to Mitigate Mold Growth in Commercial Buildings: Best Practices

6/23/2023 (Permalink)

Mold is a common problem in many commercial buildings, and can cause a variety of health issues if not kept in check. Fortunately, there are several practices you can employ to mitigate the growth of mold and help keep your property safe.

First, it’s important to identify any water or moisture sources that may be fueling the growth of mold. Check areas such as basements, attics, bathrooms, and kitchens for any signs of water damage or leaks. If you discover a leak, it’s important to address the issue immediately to prevent further damage.

Next, keep humidity levels in check. Mold loves dampness and humid air is one way that it can thrive in your building. Investing in a dehumidifier may be necessary to help reduce the relative humidity (RH) level inside your building to below 60%. Additionally, ensure that all windows and doors are sealed properly to prevent outside moisture from entering the premises.

Most importantly, regularly inspect your property for potential mold growth. Pay close attention to areas like carpets and furniture as these are particularly prone to mold growth. If you do find any signs of mold, be sure to contact a professional restoration company like SERVPRO® Levittown right away for help.

By following these best practices, you can keep your commercial building safe and free from the dangers of mold. For further assistance in assessing and restoring your property after water or mold damage, reach out to SERVPRO® - We’re Here To Help®.
