4 Places To Check for Mold in Your Building

Mold spores are always in the air, but you don’t typically have a problem until a few key factors are present. Any place where there is excess moisture and organic material such as dust or food can aid growth. To keep your commercial property in  East Weymouth, MA, free of mold growth, keep an eye on these four areas.

1. HVAC System

Your air conditioning and heating system are prime targets for mold. The high humidity often generated by condensation on the coils provides a cozy environment in which spores can settle. The excess dust that tends to accumulate in the ducts can feed mold for months before you realize you have a problem, so it’s important to have them inspected and cleaned regularly.

2. Water Heater

The water heater is another place you may find mold growth. If the water heater leaks and the water is exposed to the spores in the air, you may have to contact mold mitigation experts as well as the plumber who repairs the leak to completely fix the problem.

3. Restrooms

The restrooms in your building have several fixtures that rely on water to work properly. If you have a toilet leak or the pipes under the sink break, the resulting water damage could lead to mold issues if it’s not taken care of quickly.

4. Break Room or Kitchenette

The sink and the refrigerator in your break room may produce extra moisture that makes the room a great place for mold to grow. Condensation on refrigerator coils should be kept in check. It is also important to make sure any spills or leaks from the sink are thoroughly dried.

Just because mold is always in the air, that doesn’t mean that mold growth is inevitable. By keeping a close watch on potential problem areas, you can probably curtail any fungus issues that threaten to arise.
