Although mold often accumulates in areas such as the basement and bathrooms, it can also be a nuisance in buildings with high humidity levels. Buildings are often dry during winter months because of heaters to keep the building warm using forced air. When the weather gets warmer and humidity levels increase, mold can grow on almost any surface. Because mold can cause sickness and allergies, routine inspections and using the appropriate cleaning products can help reduce mold.
Disinfectants, or products that kill about 99.9% of germs and bacteria, kill mold. Only mold spores can survive the use of disinfectants, although mold spores are greatly reduced in heated or dryer environments. Because mold spores survive, it makes cleaning mold important on a routine basis. Even standard disinfectant sprays which are safe to spray in the air and on surfaces can assist in the fight against mold. Continue reading

Punxsutawney Phil, that famous ground hog we rely on to tell us spring is on its way, didn’t see his shadow. Spring is around the corner! When the snow is gone and the cold weather gets warmer, it often brings in dust, pollen and other debris into facilities. The winter weather also leaves behind leftover ice remover, such as rock salt, and general dirt and debris. It requires special attention during cleaning in early spring to keep the indoor environment clean.
Pollen causes what is often referred to as “spring allergies” or “hay fever”. This includes symptoms similar to a cold or flu, such as a runny nose, watery and itchy eyes, coughing and sneezing. Not everyone has allergies, but it does affect over 58 million people in the U.S. each spring, which is about 20% of the U.S. population. The reason some people have allergies is because their body’s immune system treats pollen like bacteria or a virus – this causes the body to release antibodies to fight the potential illness. Although allergies can be annoying, they’re generally mild allowing people to go about their normal daily activities. Some people suffer from much more severe condition, such as asthma, which can be caused by allergies from pollen. Continue reading

Green cleaning has become an international trend to help protect the environment and people who have potential issues with harsh chemicals. Other things, such as fragrances and products without a neutral pH balance can affect your respiratory system and those who have allergies. The products are generally biodegradable, non-toxic to humans and animals. They also contain no volatile organic compounds, often referred to as VOCs. VOCs are organic chemicals that can get into the air and cause potential harm at room temperature after evaporation. VOCs are often more concentrated in indoor environments.
