One of the more overlooked feature of any residential or commercial property is it’s indoor air quality health. Many factors inside and outside a property can create a buildup of pollutants in the air. These pollutants can result in short and long term health problems for anyone inside the affected property. Residential and commercial air quality issues are often traced to undetected mold growth. Mold is a microscopic fungus that easily festers on organic matter and grows in areas with poor circulation and high humidity.
Unmanaged mold can continue to grow and take over walls, fixtures, wood components and even carpets releasing a constant stream of harmful mold spores and bacteria into the air flow within a home or business. Moldy air will create unpleasant odours and short term health issues such as: allergic type reactions and respiratory problems, reduced energy levels and drowsiness and headaches and improper sleep patterns. Long term health effects such as respiratory disease, which can lead to premature deaths, are more severe. Air quality testing is the first step in detecting and eliminating this fungus and the symptoms that go along with the air borne mold in your home or business.
