Have you ever noticed molds on food that were refrigerated for too long? What do you do with it? Do you eat it or toss it out? Likewise, molds are toxic to the commercial buildings you own or manage. Keeping the analogy in mind, we always throw poisonous food away. When you turn the lights down on the fridge and humidity takes hold, the food turns stale. Similarly, the interior of your commercial building is no different from your refrigerator. The molds can grow anywhere. All they need is a little moisture; the spores are invisible to the naked eye, making them all the more difficult to locate.

If one is in contact with mold, it can lead to various health complications. Those with respiratory snags, allergies, asthma, or weak immune systems are the most affected. But this doesn’t mean that fine people won’t be affected. Prolonged contact with an environment that consists of molds can also make people sick. They may as well start having rashes, feel itchy, or have difficulty breathing. If the exposure continues sooner or later, their condition could get worse. So, one must know how to deal with molds in large commercial buildings.

Eliminate human contact with the mold and also help the space from being damaged by following these tips:

  1. STAY VIGILANT: You should conduct a routine inspection. Spores are usually so tiny that one may overlook them, but one must stay alert, especially in damp areas. Sometimes, a carpet stain can be an area for mold to grow. Hence, appoint a janitorial staff member to look after such colors and regions.
  2. FIX IT: There’s only one way to mend such mold conditions, and that is by fixing it. Find areas of leakage, unsealed windows, or anything with a cracked foundation. Such areas are the breeding grounds for molds. Try to repair it before it turns out to be a moldy disaster.
  3. Avoid Moisture: Since most of these molds grow in humid and moisture-prone environments, itt is very important to keep the place ventilated and not encourage them to spread their microscopic roots.
