Tips for Cleaning Mold From Tiles

Ceiling tiles in commercial buildings are long lasting and often beautiful. In certain conditions, though, they can become discolored from stains and even begin to show signs of warping. If the roof has ever leaked, or if plumbing lines have leaked water, tile mold can begin to discolor the decorative features of tiles. Discoloration is part of the tile aging process, but the appearance of mold on the tile is not normal. The mold can be a source of allergens and irritants to employees and customers alike. The presence of mold is an indication that water damage may have occurred in the past.

Normal Cleaning

In most cases, tile discoloration can be taken care of with a few simple actions. The following steps should resolve a host of tile issues:

  • Clean with a wet, damp cloth
  • Use a generic cleaner made for tiles
  • Keep the room clean by frequent sweeping and upkeep of duct work
  • Touch up scratches and cracks
  • Replace as necessary

This should be enough to restore some of the glory of the tiles. In extreme cases, tile mold may require a higher level of cleaning.

Advanced Cleaning

If grit, mold, germs, and bacteria have contaminated the tiles it may be necessary to call in a professional mold mitigation company in Miami Lakes, FL. This action will result in the measuring of the humidity of each room and in finding ways to lower the moisture level in the building. Mold will only thrive in moist conditions. Air filtration systems with HEPA filters are effective in removing mold spores from the air and restoring a healthy level of indoor air quality. Once the mold is contained, then antimicrobial and anti-fungal cleaning agents are used to wipe away tile mold. Mold remediation experts that are highly trained have the advanced equipment and techniques ready to remove mold spores. They are faster to any size disaster.
