Possible Mold

12/24/2018 (Permalink)

This image was taking at a local facility. In the image you can see what appears to be mold. We cut out all this mess, cleaned the air, and followed protocol for clean-up. But, we wanted to share with our client’s ways to avoid this happening:

Since mold requires water to grow, it is important to prevent moisture problems in buildings. Moisture problems can have many causes, including uncontrolled humidity. Some moisture problems in buildings have been linked to changes in building construction practices during the 1970s, 80s and 90s. Some of these changes have resulted in buildings that are tightly sealed, but may lack adequate ventilation, potentially leading to moisture buildup. Building materials, such as drywall, may not allow moisture to escape easily. Moisture problems may include:

  • Roof leaks
  • Landscaping or gutters that direct water into or under the building
  • Unvented combustion appliances
  • Delayed maintenance or insufficient maintenance are also associated with moisture problems in schools and large buildings

Basically try to keep the moisture problems under control. If you have any questions, please call us at 843-884-2258
