Commercial Mold is Serious
In certain large buildings undiscovered water damage could be unfound for a long period of time. There are certain areas that could even dry before being discovered. The photo with this blog shows an area showing after they had a small leak in one of the many boiler rooms. It is important to have checks daily on the areas where water damage could happen. Regular maintenance should be done on all machinery and equipment in the commercial building. You should also always have a plumber on speed dial just in case water damage arises. If this happens, the quicker you fix the damage; call SERVPRO to begin drying, the less secondary damage you may have. This building in the photo did not do their checks and balances. Once they had a large water damage that started coming down the hallway is when we discovered the mold growth behind the walls in the utility room.
