Commercial Mold Removal
Why do I have mold on my premises?
Mold in a commercial property can be caused by water damage or water intrusion from various sources such as a roof, window or plumbing leaks. The humidity caused by the presence of moisture combined with the warmth and poor ventilation in a property gives mold the perfect conditions to develop, and it can spread quickly if left unchecked. This can cause damage to internal structures, damage to products in storage and is also a serious health risk for you, your customers and your staff.
Should I Clean Mold Myself?
It may be tempting to clean the mold off of surfaces yourself, however, this will only remove the surface mold. Although an area may look clean of mold, there will be spores within the surface that you will not be able to reach with household cleaning items. The spores that are left will continue to multiply and grow and the surface growth will soon be visible again. A few things you can do in the case of a mold infestation are:
- Turn off your HVAC system if you have one
- Make sure that movement in the area is limited to prevent spores from transferring elsewhere
- Do not touch or disturb the affected areas
- Make sure that you vacate the property

Finally, the team will remove the underlying cause of the infestation by repairing the affected area to stop the further intrusion of water.
If left untreated, mold can cause serious structural damage to your commercial property such as brickwork and drywall which could lead to more serious issues that will take longer and cost more to correct in addition to the loss of business while the premises are being treated and repaired.
