While any part of the country is at risk for mold growth, the high humidity of the Charlotte area leads to greater risk of moisture buildup which encourages mold growth. This can lead to health problems for tenants or employees, leading to lower productivity and higher risk of workers compensation lawsuits.
Mold can already be present in your building in a dormant form. Mold spores can be trapped during construction and then reactivated after a leak or high humidity leads to moisture build-up. If left untreated, growth can be explosive. This is especially an issue in buildings that are vacant for long amounts of time or after a flood. In cases where the mold grows on structurally important parts of your building, unchecked growth can lead to significant structural damage.
