Staying Ahead of Mold
Blog Summary: Mold can cause a lot of damage to your commercial building in Cleburne. SERVPRO of Crowley and South Johnson County shares some tips to help prevent business interruptions due to mold.
Blog: Mold can cause more problems to your business than simply spreading on surfaces in your commercial building in Cleburne, regardless of whether it is black mold, green mold, or purple mold. Depending on the extent of the damage, a business may be forced to close for several weeks for mold mitigation if necessary. A closure is of course the last possible option, but it is sometimes unavoidable. Fortunately, there are things that can be done to help you avoid losing business days due to mold mitigation. Here are a few things that you can do to try and prevent mold from interrupting your business.
Work efficiently to repair any water leaks immediately in your building when they turn up. When a water leak is detected in your commercial building, it is important to find the source of the leak as quickly as possible. Once discovered, make sure the water leak is fixed properly and all wet areas are completely dry. To ensure that the job is done properly, it is beneficial to call in a professional restoration company like SERVPRO of Crowley and South Johnson County to restore your building’s materials back to their regular moisture content levels. Mold only needs a small amount of moisture to flourish, so it is best to be thorough.
Running regular building maintenance checks to ensure that everything is as it should be can also help your business stay ahead of mold. If a leaky pipe or clogged AC condensation line goes untreated for a long period of time, it can cause significant damage.
Although these tips won’t guarantee that mold will never infect your commercial business, they will limit the opportunities for it to form and increase your chances of catching the mold in its early stages. It only takes a small water leak or an excessive amount of humidity keeping an area wet for a 24 to 48 hour period to begin the formation of mold in your commercial business.
Mold can cause serious damage to your commercial building and business as a whole. Every hour that your business is closed for mold remediation is an hour of revenue and productivity lost. Here at SERVPRO of Crowley and South Johnson County, we are committed to working efficiently to restore your business to its original condition “Like it never even happened.”
