HomeBlogShould You Test Your Business to Determine if You Need Commercial Property Restoration for Mold?

There are many things that are critical for the success of your business, starting with the building in which it is housed and the people within its walls. To ensure the continued viability of your company, it is important to avoid overlooking anything that could disrupt your business operations. While mold spores occur naturally and are found in every building, it is when the mold colonies reach excessive levels that you need to be concerned and seek immediate commercial property restoration services for mold removal. The only question then becomes, how do you know if you have too much mold and should you test your business to find out?

mold spores occur naturally

While it is sometimes obvious that there is a mold issue because your maintenance crew or cleaning crew has found it in an area with adequate moisture to feed it, many times a mold colony remains hidden from view. It is because of this that it isn’t a bad idea to schedule professional mold inspection and testing services every so often. Other reasons you should consider testing include the presence of mold odor, knowledge of a persistent leak situation or a period of time where there was standing water present, or if building occupants complain of health symptoms, such as coughing, headaches, sneezing, and allergy symptoms.
