Commercial Mold Inspection

Mold and mildew are present everywhere, even in commercial buildings. If the caulking or sealing in your shower has ever turned pink or black, you've seen mold. If you've ever pulled clothes from the washer that have sat too long, or gym clothes from a forgotten gym bag, you've smelled mildew. More people are becoming more aware of mold and mildew in their homes and this has created more litigation, more information and more controversy on the topic. While no one wants either fungus in their homes or work space, everyone has it to some degree. The extent and type of fungi is more important, actually, than how much of it you see. A commercial mold inspector will personally explore least used spaces and most used places in your commercial, including behind drywall, under sinks, behind stairs, in the sticky places where ceiling tiles and carpeting are adhered to surfaces, around and behind pipes, and more places where mold and mildew can grow. This may include looking for damp or wet conditions, low circulation and humidity in your garages, storage rooms, assembly areas, work stations, employee kitchens and bathrooms, entryways, basements, crawlspaces, and attics. Mold grows in places such as the back side of dry wall, wallpaper or paneling, the top side of ceiling tiles, and the underside of carpets and pads. They'll check around all your pipes, the surface of walls behind furniture (where condensation forms), inside ductwork, and in roof materials above ceiling tiles.
