Given the right conditions, mold can grow in any building. It can seep into layers of the carpet, walls, doors, and other surfaces. Mold grows and lives only at the right temperature and when higher levels of moisture come into contact with oxygen, they stagnate. Sometimes, it could take weeks or even months for mold to become noticeable in appearance and smell, all while it’s getting to work destroying the bones of your building. Plus, once the mold is found, it could be already infecting the surrounding air, causing a multitude of health problems. Mold is no joke. The second mold is discovered in a building, it should be removed and the area it impacted cleaned up immediately by a professional mold removal service.
Mold Cleanup Services
If mold is not cleaned and removed properly, it can spread to other parts of the building very easily. Professional mold services will find and kill all instances of the mold bacteria. They’ll start at the source of the mold, removing any damaged structures, and then find out if the mold has spread. Professionals must wear masks and gloves, as mold particles can fly around in the air and cause health problems if inhaled. For any non-structural damage, they will then trap and kill the mold with a certified HEPA-filtered vacuum. Finally, anything contaminated by the mold is disposed of, including any personal, decorative, or furniture items near the mold that may have come into contact with it.

The Dangers of Working with Mold
The presence of mold can lead to a variety of health conditions, especially if you are in a building with mold a majority of the week. It can also worsen pre-existing conditions. Working in a building with mold can cause:
- Allergic Reactions
- Sinus Infections
- Respiratory Illness
- Skin Rash
- And More
Plus, prolonged exposure to mold can make these conditions flare up more often or worsen overall, harming your health. If you see or suspect any mold in your commercial building, call Elite Cleaning immediately to get it professionally removed before you, your employees, or customers experience any of these health conditions.
