Upon moving appliances, a Restaurant in the San Antonio area found mold in their commercial kitchen. After receiving a protocol, the professionals at SERVPRO of The Hill Country were called in to remediate the mold. If a kitchen is not properly ventilated, steam from cooking can cause moisture that can produce mold after prolonged exposure.

When SERVPRO of The Hill Country deep cleans, we sanitize as well as remove any dirt and/or food particles.

Ways Mold Forms in Your Business' Building

2/24/2020 (Permalink)

The best way to prevent mold is to control moisture. The main requirements for outdoor mold growth are moisture and shade. Mold does not like the sun and/or ultra violet rays. The main requirement for inside mold growth is simply moisture, and it can occur in: ceilings, attics, floors, insulation, wood, drywall, clothing, carpeting, bathrooms, and more. Some causes of excessive moisture are: condensation, humidity, cooking, washing, or water from a flood, leak or spill. Mold also grows in environments with warm temperatures. Mold growth can begin in less than 48 hours of excessive moisture.

What you can do as a business owner to prevent mold growth from forming in your place of business:

  • Fix water leaks. Any known water leaks should be fixed quickly. Have a contractor and/or plumber inspect for unknown leaks.
  • Limit condensation. Keep room temperatures warm and well insulated.
  • Reduce humidity. Open windows, install exhaust fans or use a dehumidifier.
  • Clean and dry wet/damp areas. Any wet or damp area, materials or affected equipment should be cleaned within 48 hours to prevent mold growth.

If your business has experienced water damage or mold growth, please do not hesitate to call SERVPRO of The Hill Country today!
