Preventing Mold Growth in Your Laurel Business

Mold growth can ruin your business’s reputation. No one wants to be inside a mold-infested building, after all. If you are concerned about the condition of your Laurel business, then you should do all you can to prevent the growth of mold and mildew. After all, even in the cold and dry winter, this can still be a problem.

What Causes the Mold?

Mold can grow almost anywhere inside your Laurel business. Inspect the drywall between the walls, the carpets on the floors, the upholstery on furniture, and the wood on the tables. Once it gets cold outside, the heat inside the building typically goes up; however, this warmth provides the mold with the conditions in which to multiply. It’s difficult to dry the mold out or to freeze it off. So more drastic measures are often necessary.

Why Is It a Problem?

Mold growth is a problem even if it is invisible or otherwise undetectable for a while. The longer it goes undetected or ignored, the worse the problem gets. Your employees, workers, and visitors could be highly allergic to the presence of mold. Mold can damage the overall productivity of your Laurel business, which is why it is imperative that you provide a clean and healthy work environment.


Keeping all areas of your Laurel business clean is essential. This includes making sure that the HVAC units in your building are well-maintained, too, because mold and mildew can collect in the ducts and you won’t immediately realize it. Look around the entire building for sources of water damage due to leaks. Anywhere where moisture could be hiding is a potential hiding spot for mold growth.

Once you find the leaks, repair them as quickly as possible. This includes any leaks in your commercial HVAC system. Look at the coils and drip pans and see if anything is wrong. If moisture is accumulating, then you need to deal with it, because standing water is a bad sign.

Then make sure that all walls, ceilings, and floors are dry. Encourage your employees to do their part in keeping the building clean, and check in with professional cleaning crews to ask them how they remove any mold that they find on your premises.
