How To Handle Workplace Mold Cleanup

Mold is a part of almost every environment, but certain types and quantities can damage a building, and possibly make occupants experience allergic reactions, asthma attacks, and other symptoms. It can be a scary situation that you may not know how to solve. Here are some common questions and answers about mold in the workplace, and how Montana business owners can be sure they are doing the right thing.

Q: What are the types of mold?

A: There are thousands, possibly hundreds of thousands, of types of mold, and there is always mold in the air. If moisture is present, mold can grow on nearly any surface. Although most mold is harmless to humans, some types of mold produce mycotoxins that can be particularly dangerous if present in a home or business.

Q: How can mold affect your business?

When mold spores get into the air, your employees and patrons breathe them in. This can cause problems with asthma, other respiratory problems, and constant sickness. This can lead to workers’ compensation claims being filed and can be a difficult and long process for you as a business owner to handle.

Q: How can mold damage my property?

A: First, mold grows due to moisture in the environment. This moisture can mean extensive damage to areas in your building. The moisture must be addressed as promptly as the mold itself. Mold spreads quickly across surfaces and in the air, traveling through ductwork and causing damages in further areas of the building.

Q: Who is responsible for taking care of mold in the workplace?

A: As a business owner, it becomes your responsibility to make sure that any mold is taken care of immediately. That can be a challenging and daunting task and one that you shouldn’t try to do yourself. While you may think you have tackled the mold issue, you don’t know if there are hidden issues you can’t see.

Q: How can you make sure you are doing the right thing as a business owner or landlord?

A: In 2003 Montana passed the Mold Disclosure Act. This protects landlords and tenants alike by requiring full disclosure of any mold problems, testing, and remediation. As soon as you see the first signs of mold, make sure you get it remediated quickly. It’s important that you keep your tenants informed of the process. The quicker you remediate, the faster you can get back to your business and make sure you continue running smoothly.

Q: I discovered mold in my buildings. Should I clean it myself?

A: No, as mentioned, there may be hidden issues you can’t see. Mold is airborne and needs a professional remediation company to clean it for you. In fact, it’s your responsibility as a business owner to make sure your property is cared for effectively. You’re busy, and you don’t want to worry about how to get rid of mold. That’s where we come in. Alpha Omega Disaster Restoration can fix this problem quickly, giving you peace of mind by knowing it’s done correctly.

"Luckily I have never needed to use a restoration company, but as someone who has worked closely with Alpha Omega, they have treated my clients very well, and have always been honest and very transparent. Although their whole team is very professional and punctual, Carissa and Sonya have been great to work with."

"Best service in town! I had water leaking through my basement ceiling from the overflow drain in my upstairs bathtub. They showed up immediately after I called, they were super professional and helped me find the leak and even told me how I can fix it myself. I was so impressed how well the turned my problem around."
