The problem with mold is that it can grow anywhere. All it needs to thrive is a little moisture and some organic material so it can spread to other areas of the office. Of course, it may be impossible to remove all organic sources from your office.
However, it’s still possible to remove mold from an office and stop it from reoccurring. Here are a few tips which can help you create a mold-free office.
Dry Out Any Wet Areas
If you have spillage and leaks anywhere in the office, then you must clean up and dry those out as soon as possible.
A well-ventilated office will prevent pockets of damp air from developing, which is a prime environment for mold to take hold. It may be necessary to invest in a dehumidifier for those areas you can’t adequately ventilate.
Removing Mold from Carpet
If the mold infestation is extensive, the only course of action may be to rip up the carpet and replace it with new. However, in some cases, you will be able to clean the area with steam or specialized cleaning agents.
Please note that some mold infections are toxic, so you should check with mold cleaning professionals like ATPMold before undertaking this task yourself.
You should also be aware that different types of mold infections will respond to varying types of treatment. A professional cleaning service will know which treatment will work best in your situation.
Dealing with Mold on Concrete and Wood
The only way to remove mold from wood and concrete is by scrubbing the area using strong disinfectants and other cleaning agents. You will need to use products which can penetrate the material and kill off any remaining traces of the mold.
Again, the best way for you to safely treat the mold infection may be to call in a professional mold cleaning service who can identify the mold and remove and clean the affected portions.
If you have a serious mold infection then ATP Mold has the tools, skills and experience to root out every trace of mold and ensure your office remains a mold free environment.
