Mould is always at risk of appearing particularly in colder months. Too much moisture in one place can cause your workplace to build up with germs and mould.
Not to worry, we are here to tell you how you can stop mould and keep your workplace clean. Firstly, it’s important to ensure your workplace is well ventilated and airy. Mould is not just smelly and unsightly, it can also be dangerous to the health of your staff and visitors.
Wet Umbrellas and Coats
In the winter months where your team members are coming into the workplace with wet umbrellas and coat, this can lead to a build-up of moisture in the air and result in condensation. This, in turn, can lead to a build-up of mould. The best way to prevent this is to tackle the condensation before it starts, keep your entrance area or reception as ventilated as possible at all times to allow the moisture to disperse rather than gather.
Ventilation and Heating
Another point to note is that you must ensure your radiators, windows and other means of ventilation are kept unblocked and accessible at all times. If you have a small room with no heat or ventilation to dry up the moisture you’ll often find mould in these places more often. If you have a room or storage area without ventilation or heating try using some dehumidifiers instead.
If you find yourself in a situation where you were unable to prevent the mould, always remember that mould can be harmful to health so always be sure to use the correct protective equipment to protect your eyes, lungs and hands. If you think the mould needs professional help, please seek advice before tackling it alone.
