Mold starts when moisture is present. You can prevent moisture in your office space before it becomes a problem by:
Purchasing a dehumidifier– if your office space is prone to humidity, consider purchasing a dehumidifier, which can wick away any excess moisture and prevent mold from spreading in walls, carpeting, or other surfaces.
Being proactive about plumbing– if a sink pipe has burst or a toilet has a clog, be sure to get it fixed right away. Pipes can leak or even worse burst, causing water damage and a serious mold problem.
Fixing poor insulation– even if you keep office windows and doors closed, poor insulation can cause moisture from the outdoor environment to get in through the cracks causing damage and mold to build up over time.
Scheduling routine maintenance– if your business space does not undergo regular maintenance through cleaning or ventilation inspections, mold may be present. Not only does regular upkeep help to keep a place clean, but if mold is found during a regular checkup or cleaning, it can prevent it from spreading more.
