Many times, mold and moisture related issues in commercial buildings can be linked to building structure issues or facilities maintenance. Even when a building is in excellent condition, mold may still be found. It takes three things for mold to grow. First is the mold spores that are prevalent in the air. Second is a food source such as cellulose based building materials. Last and definitely not least is moisture. Without moisture, mold can not grow. Hospitals and health care facilities have numerous areas where mold can grow and thrive. One of the most common places for mold is in the HVAC system.Mold can build up in the system and spores can travel to other parts of the facility by way of air ducts.

Common Placesfor Growth:

*Inside walls, in between wallpaper, tile, or surface mols

*In ceilings and attics where there are possible leaks

*Underneath floors and floor materials

*Utility and Maintenance Rooms

*Around pipes and plumbing

*Improperly installed flashing or roofing materials.

*Areas being remodeled.
