Mold in Commercial Space

8/11/2021 (Permalink)

There are many different types of mold.  A common one that can be growing inside your commercial business is known as Botrytis mold, also known as gray mold.  It can be found almost anywhere that plants are being grown including inside your business. It can spread easily through wind and water, and grow on a variety of surfaces.  It first appears as a white fuzzy color rapidly turning to gray, and sometimes even brown.  Like most molds Botrytis thrives in moisture and attacks the weak part of a plant and spreads to the healthy areas.  Some frequent household foods that are affected are strawberries, grapes, lettuce, onions, and cabbage.  Botrytis mold is highly allergenic.  Because of all these issue, it is very important for this mold to be removed right away.  At first sight any infected plant must be removed and disposed of to stop any further growth.  To make sure your home is completely mold free contacting SERVPRO of Allentown and Western Lehigh County is a smart decision.  We can have one of our trained professionals out to your building to run air quality tests, and identify any mold issue that you may be dealing with.  Once this is done if there is any mold that is found our team at SERVPRO of Allentown and Western Lehigh County will be ready to remove and treat the affected area.  Keeping your building mold free is the way to be!
