5 Signs Your Office Needs a Mold Remediation Service

Part of keeping your company's building clean requires looking out for sources of damage. Here are signs you need a mold remediation service.

In a humid, muggy state like Florida, you can count on mold being a problem. 

Wherever there's moisture, mold follows. And whether it's a leaky roof, busted pipes, hurricane or other storm damage, fixing mold damage just comes with the territory. 

Here's a look at six signs that indicate your office is in need of a mold remediation service. 

1. Strange Odor

One of the earliest and most obvious signs of mold is a strange or musty odor. 

When mold spores begin colonizing, they often emit a recognizable odor. So if you detect a moldy aroma in your office, which wasn't there before, this is usually a good sign that you might have a mold problem. 

Still, you shouldn't only rely on your sense of smell. After all, some molds are odorless. 

2. Water Damage

A good sign that you'll probably need mold remediation service is water damage anywhere in your office. 

If there's been recent water damage, you can expect the growth of new mold. This is one of those unfortunate facts of life. So if you've had water damage anywhere in your office, it's a good idea to expect damage from mold. 

3. Leaky Pipes

Of course, one of the major sources of water damage is leaks in pipes

This is why it's important to regularly inspect the plumbing and pipework in your office for any signs of leaks or breakages. Even a small leak, unnoticed and insignificant, can generate the conditions that promote the growth of mold and mildew. 

Fixing mold damage isn't enough. Be proactive, and ensure that the pipes and ductwork in your office is in good repair and free of leaks. 

4. Naked-Eye Mold

If you can see the mold growth, then you know you need a mold remediation service. 

This seems like an obvious one. But it's critical to take even the smallest signs of mold growth seriously. Molds exhibit many different colors, shapes, and even textures. 

If you recognize the appearance of a mold patch in your office, even a small one, it's time to contact a mold remediation service. 

5. Excessive Humidity

This is important if you're located in a humid, muggy environment. 

If this describes your office, then it's certain that you're at least at a higher risk for mold growth. High humidity equals more moisture, which is conducive to the spread of mold spores. 

Keep a Lookout For These Signs That You Might Need a Mold Remediation Service

These are six important indicators that your office is in urgent need of a mold remediation service. Signs of mold, leaky pipes, weird odors, health effects—if any or all of these are present in an office space, it's probably time for some mold cleansing.
