Mold is always a nuisance negatively impacting the physical presentation and comfortability of commercial buildings. With commercial properties, it is essential that all proactive measures be strategically placed to combat mold growth. Potential mold breeding grounds should be identified and taken care of immediately. Additionally, aspects that promote mold growth such as water and wet surroundings ought to be paid heed as well. For this reason, there are effective approaches to be utilized in the fight against mold.These include the use of building materials that are mold-resistant, like mold-resistant wood, premium cellulose insulation, and mold-resistant paint on newly constructed walls.Also, the utility of dehumidifiers that maintain the humidity in a commercial building at levels below 50% is essential. An influx of humidity in the interior environment of a commercial building provides a conducive environment for molds to thrive on the walls, roof, and floor of the property.Wet grounds are critical for the survival of mold spores. Consequently, commercial building grounds both exterior and interior should be kept dry to prevent microbial growth. Janitors should dry floors completely after cleaning to ensure unwanted moisture is clear of all areas. Water or liquids that accidentally pour on floors or furniture should be cleaned immediately to prevent further seeping.
