Mold Remediation in Schools & Commercial Buildings



What is Mold?

Mold can grow anywhere that moisture is present. Mold grows on things like paper, food, wood, tiles, carpet, furniture ,and even insulation.  Mold breeds and multiplies in warm moist places. Schools and office buildings are the perfect breeding ground for mold to take root and bloom. Once there is mold present the spores can spread through the air and find other damp locations to grow in.


Prevention: How to prevent mold in schools and office buildings:
  1. Control the moisture levels indoors to decrease the opportunity for mold to grow.  

  2. Fix leaks as soon as they are identified

  3. Be aware of where condensation builds, take measures to eliminate moisture

  4. Keep all ventilation and air conditioning drip pans cleaned 

  5. Maintain low indoor humidity, below 60%. Ideally 30-50%

  6. Perform regular building/HVAC inspections and maintenance 

  7. Vent all moisture generating appliances 

  8. When identifying and remediating mold it is important to ensure your highest priority is the safety and health of all of the buildings occupants. It is crucial to start the mold remediation process immediately after you have identified the problem. 

Negative Side Effects: Mold exposure can cause negative side effects such as
  1. Headaches

  2. Asthma 

  3. Rashes 

  4. Throat irritation 

  5. Coughing 

  6. Weezing 

  7. Eye irritation
