Mold Problems in the Workplace

Company Works with Businesses on Best Approach to Unsafe Mold Growth

LOS ANGELES, CA: Building Cleaning Services (BCS), (http://buildingcleaningservices.net/) a Los Angeles company that has been working in the mold remediation field for more than 15 years, and is licensed by the Contractors State License Board, works closely with business owners to ensure they protect themselves, employees and clients from exposure to toxic mold.

In 2013 the US Department of Labor updated its Guide to Mold in the Workplace, stating, “Concern about indoor exposure to mold has increased along with public awareness that exposure to mold can cause a variety of health effects and symptoms, including allergic reactions.” The bulletin is directed primarily at building managers, custodians, and others responsible for building maintenance.

BCS concurs with the report that mold growth can and should be avoided. According to the Dept. of Labor, “Molds gradually damage building materials and furnishings. If left unchecked, mold can eventually cause structural damage to a wood framed building, weakening floors and walls as it feeds on moist wooden structural members. If you suspect that mold has damaged building integrity, consult a structural engineer or other professional with the appropriate expertise. Since mold requires water to grow, it is important to prevent excessive moisture in buildings.”

Building Cleaning Services is urging that businesses, large or small, take fast action to correct any mold infestations. Specifically, the company seeks to raise awareness with business owners on utilizing the correct procedures to remedy the infestation.

The company’s standards are a cut above other mold companies according to many clients. Its expert staff take the time to thoroughly explain not only the problems and risks of mold but how quickly and effectively it can be fixed.

According to one who used BCS’s services: “From the crew to the back office, everyone was professional, on time, fair and friendly. They took care of our water intrusion issue and made a bad situation so much easier to handle. They actually care about their work and doing a good job. A rare find.”
