Eliminate Mold in the Workplace to Keep Your Employees Healthier


MOLD. Just the word conjures up mental images of nasty, black stains on the walls, grout lines, drywall, wood, and other surfaces in your Ukranian Village workplace. In addition to its ugly appearance and ability to destroy wood and other structural materials, mold is dangerous to your health.

Mold is everywhere. It’s a type of fungus that grows from tiny spores that float in the air. It can grow almost anywhere those spores land that has find moisture and a comfortable temperature between 40 and 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Typically, that description fits every damp place in your workplace.

Although a small amount of mold and mildew won’t hurt most of us and can usually be taken care of with some elbow grease and ordinary household cleaning products, it starts to become a serious problem when mold spores reach high numbers. When the quantity of mold spores in a contained area gets out of hand, or when employees or clients are highly sensitive to toxic mold and breathe it in, it can present a serious health hazard. Mold and mildew are known to cause respiratory problems, common allergic reaction symptoms, nervous-system disorders, and even depression.

Additionally, there are certain types of molds that produce what are known as mycotoxins. These molds are particularly dangerous and create a toxic working and breathing environment for you and your employees, customers, patients, and vendors. Research has shown that breathing in large amounts of these mycotoxins can impair the entire human system and even lead to death.
