Mold Prevention Program

Specialized services for preventing the build-up of mold on textile and leather products

Business Challenge

With the continuing restriction of anti-mold substances such as dimethylfumarate, mold growth on textile and leather goods is becoming an increasingly significant issue that can result in sizeable losses. However, it is preventable at the factory stage, reducing the need for scrapped products and rework costs.

Many factories and assembly plants, particularly in Asia, are ideal breeding grounds for mold due to the high levels of warmth and humidity. Inappropriate storage and/or packaging may increase the mold problems. The methods and controls used to manage mold growth must be carefully monitored to improve the situation.

Mold growth can cause products to smell, change color or even become infected with dangerous species of mold that can be toxic and pose human health risks for people who come into contact with the mold spores. Prevention of mold spreading is the answer to manage mold growth during shipping, damaged products, late deliveries, lost sales and reduced profits.

Solution

Bureau Veritas has developed a Mold Prevention Program to help you prevent mold problems at your manufacturing facility through the investigation of the conditions in which products are manufactured, stored and packed prior to shipment reducing the risk of damaged products being received prior to retail.

During the mold prevention factory assessment the moisture content and humidity of the manufacturing plant will be measured and assessed, including monitoring of packaging materials, general housekeeping and mold management. Once the mold prevention factory assessment has been completed, recommendations for on-going mold management will be provided by the factory, highlighting key action points.

In addition to the factory assessment, we offer product testing to verify whether your products contain mold as well as seminars to educate the supply chain as to best mold prevention practices.
