Limiting Microbial Growth in Construction to Protect Materials and People

June 1, 2023

David Tvergyak focuses on the importance of addressing microbial growth or mold on construction sites and the role of temporary climate control in preventing its spread. He highlights that different types of molds and microbes can pose threats to both materials and personnel’s health and safety. However, a common factor among these microbials is their reliance on a food source and moisture to grow and multiply. To mitigate this issue, David suggests implementing temporary climate control measures that regulate temperature and humidity on-site. By doing so, the spread of microbes and release of spores can be limited, containing any potential problems. Additionally, providing a comfortable work environment for personnel is another benefit of controlling the climate. The video emphasizes the importance of monitoring the equipment used for climate control to ensure that the desired parameters are maintained. Merely creating a comfortable space without adhering to specific requirements may inadvertently lead to the spread of mold.
