The air we breathe normally contains mold spores. Health problems may occur when mold grows indoors.
Leaking pipes may cause mold to reproduce. Once mold begins to grow, inspection professionals can discover and identify the type of mold growing in your home.
People which are already prone to allergies or have respiratory issues are affected greatly by mold spores. Poor indoor air health includes pneumonia, fatigue, susceptibility to other infections, headaches, skin problems, ear, nose and throat irritation and sinus congestion.
American Construction and Plumbing, a certified environmental home inspection company, suggests the following to keep homes mold-free for healthy living:
- MIND THE MOISTURE
- STORE SAFELY
- HEAT FINISHED BASEMENTS
- VENTILATE VIGOROUSLY
- USE MOLD RESISTANT BUILDING SUPPLIES
- FILTER THE AIR
- INSULATE DUCTS
- FIX FLOODS FAST
