Commercial Mold Damage: Where is it hiding?

3/9/2021 (Permalink)

Have you wondered about your commercial facility?

...and where is the mold hiding?

There are a variety of commercial facilities that could have mold hiding. The best way to know where mold could be hiding is to have a professional mold testing completed. Our offices can complete mold testings for your facility. Here are a few places that mold can be hiding in plain sight, and what to do when you do find it or suspect it.


When it comes to restaurants or businesses that incorporate food preparation into their business-- they can typically create a mold thriving setting without even meaning to. Because of the temperatures it takes to keep food stored, or have the HVAC set at a certain temperature to keep customers comfortable, a perfect environment for mold growth can be created. Also, having food debris and other food sources can be a great place for a mold colony to begin to grow and spread. 
Apartments, Hotels, and Rental Properties
Mold tends to live, in many cases, where people do as well. This means that landlords and hotel owners are some of the most commonly afflicted business owners and managers when it comes to mold, especially when properties are rented short-term. The best way to combat this is to do mold testing in-between residents and have a  schedule set up so you do not forget. 
Industrial Settings

There are a variety of industrial facilities that know exactly how to make the right setting to not induce mold growth, but most do not. Sometimes it is not a top priority to detect mold, while other times factory or industry workers can assume that the mold is a part of the surroundings that come with some factories or industrial settings.
Of course, this varies from industry to industry, but it is always a good idea to educate your employees on when and where to look for mold growth for a possible need for professional cleaning.
