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
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?

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