What Is Causing Mold in Your Commercial Building?
If you have found black mold or any type of mold growing in your commercial building, you’re likely wondering how it got there. Was it a moisture problem? Has it been there for a long time? Knowing what caused the growth may help you avoid the need for more mold cleanup in the future.
Mold needs moisture to survive. This dampness can come from many sources, including:
• Burst pipes
• Leaky faucets
• Broken supply lines
Even something as simple as high humidity in a building can cause mold to grow. If your facility has 70% humidity, you may want to find a way to reduce the moisture in the air.
Warmth is another element loved by black mold and many other types of fungus. Sometimes the temperatures in empty warehouses or busy factories can get high. Whenever possible, try to keep your buildings below the mid-70s on the Fahrenheit scale to discourage the growth of mold.
Another environmental element that could lead to more appearances of mold is darkness. Darkness alone might not be enough to cause mold growth, but it is often associated with damp, stagnant places. The environment of your commercial building can play a big role in the development of mold.
