Mold is common problem in many buildings, take a look at this infographic about the facts on mold and the impact it can have on your health. As a property owner or manager it’s important to regularly check for mold in your building because commercial HVAC systems affect so many occupants every day.

If mold is found then you need to act quickly to remove it before it spreads into the HVAC system and is ventilated throughout the office air supply.

Where to look for mold:

  • Look for stains or discolourations on walls (especially near floors), window panes, fabrics, carpets.
  • Check in areas that have limited airflow, like closets, corners, and basements.
  • Investigate any spaces that have a musty or earthy odour.

How to clean mold:

  • Mold spores will spread when you clean them, turn off the HVAC system to prevent the spores from spreading.
  • Additionally you can seal off the area with plastic sheeting if necessary.
  • Wear the proper protective equipment for mold cleanup: rubber gloves, eye protection, and a dust mask.
  • Clean the surface with water and dish soap.
  • Run a dehumidifier if excessive humidity is the cause of the mold.
  • Remove and replace drywall if it is badly damaged.

If large areas of mold are an issue then it is best to hire a professional mold removal service to tackle the issue. Take proper precaution and contact your commercial HVAC contractor to check for mold contamination in your HVAC system. They can test the air quality, replace your air filters, and give you piece of mind by ensuring that your health is not at risk from mold exposure.
