What Can You Do About Mold?
As we mentioned before, it is your responsibility as an employer or
building owner to keep everyone that works for you safe and healthy in
their work environment. That’s why it’s essential for you to help
eliminate mold problems as quickly as possible. Things you can do to keep
the air quality in your business clean include:
1. Prevent Excess MoistureControlling moisture is the key to
controlling mold in your workplace. Prevention tactics include:
- Use dehumidifiers when possible.
- Repair any leaky pipes, ceilings, or windows.
- Keep your HVAC system maintained by professionals.
2. Remove Damaged Materials.If you notice any materials in the
office have water damage from leaks or flooding, bag up the materials and
dispose of them as soon as possible. These materials are now breeding
grounds for mold, and getting rid of them is the only way to stop it.
3. Clean Up in a Timely MannerIf your building does experience any
kind of leak or flooding, it’s vital that you have the area professionally
and thoroughly cleaned within 48 hours of the event. Water that hangs out
any longer than that will cause mold growth to skyrocket quickly.
4. Bring in the ProfessionalsSometimes the best thing you can do
for your employees and your building is to bring in the professionals.
Most businesses can’t afford to shut down operations for long periods of
time to deal with a mold problem in their building. That’s why
professionals should be brought in to quickly remediate the issue and get
you back up and running quickly.
