Mold Found in Commercial Ductwork - What Next??
You’re a responsible business owner, so you think about everything
that’s involved in your business. Not just the debits on the left
and the credits on the right, or the schedules or the communications strategy
or the logistics, but even the little things which are the big things.
Things like your indoor air quality, for example – you know that
periodically you need to be inspecting your ductwork and ventilation systems
for indications of contamination, because a workplace that’s filled
with environmental pollutants and airborne toxins can be hazardous not
only to your employees’ health, but also to their productivity and
therefore to your bottom line. So during one of your recent spot-check
inspections, there was mold found in your ductwork – what next?
Here are some practical tips to help guide you through the process of getting your facility back to having the best air quality possible.
• DON’T PANIC.
Sure, black mold and other toxic spores can have serious effects. But now’s not the time to freak out. At the same time, you don’t want to just cover the problem up and pretend like you never saw it. So take a deep breath (when you’re not close to the mold!) and take enough time to carefully consider your options, because how you handle this issue could have some far-reaching implications for your business if you aren’t careful…
• DIY, IF YOU DARE.
Here’s the part where you have an important choice to make: are you going to try to take care of this mold spot yourself and hope that you get all of it and that it will stay away for good? If you have a great deal of experience with mold testing and mold remediation, and you have all the right mold removal equipment and supplies, and you have all the time needed to take care of it yourself, then we say go for it. We’ll just go back to our original question: are you 100% sure that the mold is really gone? And, what if there are other spots in your ductwork that you can’t see? This is something you know will nag you later every time you hear the HVAC unit kicking on.
• CALL A MOLD REMEDIATION EXPERT.
No business owner wants another unexpected expense to show up under the maintenance line on the income statement, but any careful and caring business leader won’t look at just the bill that’s right in front of them, but also the many bills they know they’ll be facing in the future if the initial repair isn’t done the right way. So here’s where some additional time and some careful research will pay off in the long run. When you’re looking for a mold removal service provider, make sure you consider their cost, availability and reputation. And don’t just take their word for it – make sure you read reviews from various internet sources to make sure that this isn’t a company that has a flashy logo but doesn’t have the chops to back up their claims to excellence.
