How Can Mastercorp Help You Prevent Mold in High Moisture Months?
Mold and mildew can spell disaster for buildings and the people who live and work in them. It’s a common issue in indoor spaces, and if left unchecked, it can lead to major property damage and costly repairs or replacements. Not only is mold an expensive problem to fix, but it can also cause major health issues like lightheadedness, fatigue, respiratory issues, headaches, and more.
As a full-service cleaning partner and janitorial services expert, MasterCorp is uniquely qualified to help you prevent the development and spread of mold in your building. We’ve worked with countless properties, and we understand that not every environment is alike. That’s why in this article we are going to discuss the common mold signs you need to look out for, as well as our proprietary tips for cleaning with mold in mind. By following these tips, you can create a mold-resistant environment and ensure the well-being of your occupants.
Signs of Mold
When people think of mold or mildew, they typically think of bathrooms because of the moisture in the air. Moisture exists all around us, especially in buildings with poor insulation or an older foundation.
How do we know if there’s a fungus among us? Typically, mold is seen in educational facilities, office buildings, and commercial center buildings as spotting along the walls, air ducts, ceiling tiles, and windows. If you work in a retail space with a stock room or an industrial warehouse, check your inventory’s packaging, as mold can sometimes pop up on the boxes used to store products. This spotting can be black, brown, or green, and it may look fuzzy or patchy.
Now that we’ve gone over what to look for, let’s talk about prevention! Here are our sure-fire tips to help you prevent mold and moisture.
MasterCorp’s Mold Prevention Tips
1. Always Check and Clean Your Ventilation systems.
Proper ventilation is crucial to preventing mold growth. It’s important to make sure all areas of your property, including restrooms, kitchens (if there are any), office rooms, lobby areas, elevators, and stairwells, have good ventilation systems. Also, make sure you’re regularly cleaning your air vents.
MasterCorp is an expert in ventilation maintenance and cleaning. Our janitorial services team guarantees that your air vents will always be dusted, cleaned, inspected, and replaced by our team of experts. Need more in-depth work done? That’s okay! We also have an engineering team on standby in case you decide you need special maintenance.
2. Perform proper pipe maintenance.
Water can be tricky to keep off your property. That’s why it’s important to focus on your biggest contributors to moisture. Make sure your janitorial team is regularly cleaning your property’s gutters, as a clogged gutter can cause severe damage to your drainage systems and cause water to overflow, possibly leading to mold.
At MasterCorp, we understand the importance of regular preventative janitorial services, which is why when you partner with us, you’re getting a team that never skips the small stuff. Even something as simple as gutter cleaning can add up if overlooked. Your bottom line is staying within your budget; our bottom line is making sure we take all the necessary steps to save you time and money on avoidable disasters.
3. Regular Cleaning and Maintenance
Regular cleaning and maintenance are essential for mold prevention. Dust and dirt can provide nutrients for mold growth, so maintaining a clean environment is vital. Also, be sure to use appropriate cleaning products, preferably eco-friendly cleaning products that are effective against mold and mildew.
Our team of janitorial experts is part of a long legacy of cleaning excellence. For decades, we have continually enhanced and perfected our proprietary cleaning techniques to deliver one of the best and most effective cleans in the market. We know that we can, without a doubt, keep your property dust-, dirt-, and mold-free!
4. Utilize Eco-friendly Cleaning materials.
When cleaning a building, consider using mold-resistant cleaning solutions. These products are designed to deter mold growth and can be beneficial in areas prone to moisture. Typically, we recommend you stock up on eco-friendly materials, as they are typically better and more effective.
MasterCorp ONLY uses eco-friendly cleaning materials because we know they are better quality and better for the environment. They are also proven to be better for the health of people in the areas where they are used because they are made from all natural products instead of chemicals. We use the best because we are one of the best.
5. Regular Cleaning and Maintenance Inspections
Schedule regular janitorial inspections conducted by professionals. These inspections can help identify any early signs of mold growth, potential problem areas that may require attention, and the effectiveness of your cleaning procedures. Early detection and intervention can save significant money on remediation in the long run.
At MasterCorp, inspections are part of our regular process because we understand the importance of consistency and quality. We inspect properties after every clean and retrain on site if issues are found, so your property remains unimpacted and in impeccable condition for your workers, visitors, and personnel.
