January 14th, 2017 by Smart Fog

Mold is one of the biggest problems businesses must combat when there’s excessive moisture in their buildings. Businesses have many reasons to eliminate and prevent mold. It includes protecting employees, equipment, customers, and inventory, which can be affected by mold. The best way to combat mold in commercial buildings is with commercial humidification systems.

About Mold Problems

Excessive moisture levels, at either extreme, can have adverse health effects and can cause damage to equipment and inventory as well. Mold is only a problem when there’s excessive moisture which allows it to grow in dark places — sometimes undetected for years. Many times, the presence of the mold unfound until it starts affecting the health of the employees, customers, etc.

According to WebMD,

“Molds are small organisms found almost everywhere…For people sensitive to mold, inhaling or touching mold spores can cause allergic reactions, including sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, and skin rash, asthma attacks.”

And according to the CDC,

“Mold is found both indoors and outdoors. It can enter..through open doorways, windows, vents, and heating and air conditioning systems. It will grow in places with a lot of moisture, such as around leaks in roofs, windows, or pipes, or where there has been flooding.”

Mold grows in moist and dark places and releases spores into the air, causing discomfort for everyone in a commercial building, and more serious health problem for people who are sensitive to upper respiratory problems. Left unchecked for years, mold can cause structural damage to buildings as well.

Even in dry climates, buildings can have mold problems if their air conditioning units are causing condensation. One can affect by mold not matter you can’t see or smell it. Whereas to prevent or remove mold, hire an expert Mold removal business to examine commercial buildings.

Preventing Mold Problems with Humidification Systems

According to the CDC, one way to control mold is to “Controlling humidity levels,” which makes sense considering mold needs moisture to grow. That means commercial businesses should acquire efficient humidification systems to prevent mold problems from occurring; preventing mold problems will ensure the health of workers and customers, as well as save any future mold removal costs.

The best commercial humidification systems available for combating mold are from Smart Fog; these are the best because of the innovative Smart Fog® Technology used in them. This technology creates 4.2 microns sized droplets through a non-chemical, low pressure, mechanical process, which works to attract and oxidize (eliminate) air-borne pathogens.

The de-correlation process, used in Smart Fog’s commercial humidification systems, is the main reason why these are best suited for preventing mold in commercial buildings. Whether offices, warehouses, industrial buildings, schools, it works as good as for each environment. This technology creates the smallest droplets in the industry, which means there’s no wetting, no drains, barely any maintenance (change filter once every two years), and a sanitizing effect.

The two most important qualities about these humidifiers are they don’t cause any wetting and they sanitize the air. That means, mold spores and excessive moisture will eliminate. These systems can be wall mounted, placed in duct systems, used as a fog tunnel, or used as a mobile unit. Basically, any commercial building application has a solution for properly controlling moisture levels to successfully combat mold issues.

Conclusion

Mold issues are common when there are excessive moisture levels in commercial buildings. Employees and customers can suffer discomfort or more serious upper respiratory health problems because of the air-borne spores mold produces. It is often difficult to detect mold through smell or sight. So, it’s hard to find out until someone gets ill.
