Commercial buildings can be at an even higher risk of developing mold issues than residential buildings.

It is difficult to regulate the amount of moisture in larger buildings. There are also more opportunities for mold to grow. For instance, mold can be found in buildings on paper, textiles, and building materials. Also there is a significant larger amount of HVAC ducts in commercial buildings known to be one of the worst places for mold to form.

Does your building have ongoing moisture problems due to water intrusion, long-standing leaks, roof damage, or from poor humidity control?

  • The presence of visible mold.
  • Strong musty odors which may indicate mold is present.

Suspect Mold at your Wadena business?

Microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, outdoors and indoors, making it impossible to remove all mold from home or business.  Some restoration businesses advertise "mold removal" and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy.

Consider the following facts:

Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or HVAC systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.

Mold spores thrive on moisture.  Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water.  These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.  When left undetected, these colonies can cause substantial damage to your facility.

Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed.  Otherwise, the mold may return.

Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.

Should you suspect or see mold give us a call at 218-568-6923.
