Jul 25, 2017
We all try to maintain clean environments in our homes and offices. Dirt and grime on surfaces and floors is one thing, but did you know that there could be mold and mildew that you’re unaware of? Your home or office could be a breeding ground for toxic molds. Unfortunately, despite your best cleaning efforts, you may easily become a victim of mold growth in your office, especially if you work in an older building with cracks, holes, and poor ventilation.
Living in a mold infested environment could have serious health implications for your employees, meaning more frequent illnesses and less productivity. For this reason, it is important to know the conditions that promote mold growth as well as effective methods of eliminating them. Mold is not something that you should take chances with or try to clean yourself. To ensure that your business premise is mold free, you should have experts conduct a thorough testing and cleaning on a regular basis. In the meantime, here are some simple tips that can help you maintain a mold free business environment.
Avoid Water Leaks
Molds thrive in a moist environment. You should try to avoid any leakage from pipes, walls or roof at your business premise. Any leaks should be fixed immediately to help avoid mold growth.
Maintain your HVAC Systems
Your Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning systems are essential for the smooth running of your business. Having a comfortable working environment is important for you as well as your employees and clients. However, you want to ensure that your clients and staff are not exposed to any toxins from the air emitted from the HVAC. Having a well maintained HVAC system is paramount to ensuring that the air is clean and also to eliminate possible molds. Unfortunately, most people go for a long time without cleaning their HVAC systems, thus unknowingly putting themselves and their employees at risk. For a business, it is advisable that you retain the services of professionals who will ensure that your air ducts are cleaned regularly and in optimum working condition.
Molds tend to grow where the environment is humid. You can avoid excess humidity within your office space by having ample ventilation. You can also try open the windows during the day to allow fresh air into the office.
