Operating a business means controlling costs, so at first glance, it may seem that having a regular mold inspection done is a cost you could forego. However, if you want to keep your employees productive and healthy, you don’t want a “sick building” doing the opposite. It is common for companies to not notice when mold is present because it is very good at hiding in places you don’t look often. That is why regular mold inspections are needed.
There are several types of mold that can colonize in a commercial building. Only certain ones are extremely toxic and pose severe health concerns. However, even those that are milder can cause respiratory ailments after continued exposure. Mold can also aggravate respiratory conditions such as asthma and allergies, which means more absenteeism, which costs you in terms of productivity. If you are noticing more illness call-outs than normal, it could be a sign that you have a mold issue. Only a mold inspection will tell you for sure.
The ideal situation is to have a routine mold inspection performed by a company that can also provide testing and removal should mold be found.
