Does mold die without water?

Finding microbial growth in your Durham business can be a headache. These organisms can cause unpleasant odors, be an eyesore, and cause health effects in some people. Moisture plays a crucial role in propagating colonies but does not remove them altogether from the premises. Mold spores lay dormant without water and are a natural part of any indoor environment. You can find mold spores in ductwork, wall cavities, and carpets of any commercial building. Disposing existing colonies before putting in place a plan to dry the property thoroughly are two strategies that applied microbial remediation technicians use to return your business to a sanitary state. 

What equipment is useful for eliminating microbial growth?

Air scrubbing equipment to get rid of microscopic spores or dust could affect indoor air quality in your premises.

Scraping tools to dislodge mold hyphae from materials and allow comprehensive removal of mold colonies.

Appropriate application of professional products, including disinfectant chemicals and anti-microbial paints or solvents. 

Why does mold return after a professional cleaning, and can it damage a commercial building?

As a business owner, you may opt to use janitorial staff or hire cleaners to deal with a mold issue. However, to tackle these issues, you need mold remediation technicians to return your Durham business to a sanitary state. Mold spores grow into colonies in the presence of moisture, organic matter, and temperature. These spores digest materials by producing an enzyme. The digestion process is why untreated mold in commercial buildings can deteriorate building materials. Mold remediation is the methodology used to control moisture and remove colonies ensuring your business returns to its preloss condition.

What should a property manager do to control molds?

Identify the issue and inform the staff of the affected area.
