Mold in Your Workplace

You are exposed to molds on a daily basis. They are in the air you breathe and grow almost anywhere and everywhere. But sometimes these molds grow so excessively in areas, like your workplace, that they can cause different types of illness.

Mold can cause symptoms similar to hay fever, the common cold, or the flu, while also aggravating asthma and other respiratory disorders. While most health disorders are temporary, excessive exposure can result in more serious conditions. This is why it is important to deal with mold outbreaks as soon as they are discovered.

Even if you cannot see mold, you may notice a mildew or earthy smell. This is almost always an indication of a mold outbreak. Mold may be found indoors on wet/damp walls, carpets, ceilings, and in ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems.

So if you and your coworkers are experiencing any unexplained medical problems (be sure to see a doctor), or if you have discovered or think you have discovered a mold outbreak in the workplace, it is time to call a professional mold remediation service.

Mold should be removed right away and while the average do-it-yourselfer can address small mold cleanups, a professional should be brought in to handle larger outbreaks.
