756 Management of Mold, Before, During, and After a Water Intrusion Event

Summary: A company that manages moisture in its buildings will reduce the risk of mold growth, business interruption, employee complaints, and negative PR. The time to think about moisture and mold growth in a building is not after it becomes evident; it is before you break ground, consider building and mechanical design, construction life cycle, preventative maintenance, building operation and incident recovery preparedness. When an event does occur, it is important to take an approach that is appropriate to both remediate damaged materials and mitigate the water source.
