Swipe’s mold reporting will tell you where and which type of mold has been found in your commercial space. Different types of mold spores have different effects on the body. While most are considered allergenic and produce general feelings of sickness similar to those of allergy sufferers, others can be deadly. These are known as toxigenic mold substances. These molds produce toxic substances that can lead to dangerous and deadly health conditions. This is why hiring an expert to properly remediate the mold situation in your commercial space is the safest option.
Remediation of Mold
To remediate a commercial mold situation we first need to locate where the problem is. Once we have identified where the mold problem is in your office then we can gear up. Our technicians will get to work removing the moldy materials. This can involve removing carpets, drywall, ceiling, HVAC and more. Depending on the size of the mold outbreak we may need to also contain the area with plastic. By doing this we will prevent any spores from contaminating other areas. Professional drying equipment might need to be used in especially wet environments. Any moldy materials that cannot be removed should be treated with a fungicide in order to prevent further spread. Once everything has been thoroughly cleaned and dried it will be ready for habitation again.
Three Types of Mold Common in Commercial Buildings
