Mold Remediation Checklist for Commercial Buildings (Part 1)
If you suspect your commercial building harbors mold, follow these steps to determine the nature and scale of the problem. As you work, keep your building occupants informed about your mold remediation process. And if you have a medium- or large-size mold problem, select an experienced remediation manager such as SERVPRO of Mansfield/Manchester.
- Does your building have a history of moisture problems? Are there hidden sources of water? Is the humidity high enough to cause condensation?
- Are building materials or furnishings visibly damaged? Have building materials been wet more than 48 hours?
- Have building occupants reported musty or moldy odors or health problems?
- Check any signs or reports of mold. Clean up small mold problems and fix moisture problems before they become large problems.
- Identify any and all sources or causes of water or moisture. Note the type of water-damaged materials (wallboard, carpet, etc.) and measure the size of the affected area.
- Check inside your commercial building’s air ducts and air handling units.
