How To Prevent Hotel Mold Problems

Do you run a hotel? If yes, it is important to inspect hotel rooms for mold growth. When your hotel has mold problems, it prevents your hospitality business from growing occupancy rates.

Your hotel could have black mold, mildew or major fungi that could cause illness for hotel guests and the hotel staff alike.

When any of these elements are present in the hotel, the hotel as a whole should have professional mildew, fungi and mold decontamination completed.

How is mold reproduce?

Mold reproduces through mold spores that land in moist areas. Once the mold spores are in contact with moisture, they grow and digest the surface they land upon.

Mold can survive as long as it has the following attributes within its location:

  • Food Source
  • A temperature between 40 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Water

Mold can spread throughout the hotel through airflow, hotel guests, hotel staff or even pets (if permitted).

You cannot keep mold spores out of your hotel but you can prevent those mold spores from developing mold and mildew.
