If you find mold growing at your place of business, don’t simply ignore the problem. Unfortunately, if you can see mold growth in certain spots, this likely means there is much more mold present than you imagined. Since mold can begin its growth process within 24 hours after an area becomes wet, mold can quickly spread in, around, and underneath flooring, walls, ceilings, and other areas of a building. If you have found mold damage at your business and are wondering what to do next, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Call Mold Removal Experts
While you may be able to get rid of some mold on your own, it’s always best to call on experts who specialize in mold remediation. Here at Lotus, we have technicians who are certified and possess the latest training in mold remediation. From knowing how to use high-tech vacuums and air filtration systems to having various types of cleaners and sealants that can get rid of mold and prevent it from reappearing, you can count on us here at Lotus to solve your mold problems.

Cutting Off its Moisture Supply
Since mold thrives in areas where moisture is present, cutting off its supply of moisture is key to solving the problem. Once our technicians have determined where mold exists within an area, they will create a seal that is airtight. Along with helping to cut off the mold’s moisture supply, this will also keep the mold contained so that it does not hinder you or others who may suffer from allergies, asthma, or other respiratory or health issues.

Verifying the Mold is Gone
After we have done our job, we bring in a trained industrial hygienist to test the affected areas to ensure the mold is indeed gone. An important final step, this will let you know the problem is solved to your satisfaction.
