Mold Consulting


That seemingly harmless furry stuff that crops up in damp spots has been getting the attention of risk managers, safety officials and others as concerns about possible health issues associated with exposure increases. Given the proper conditions, mold can easily thrive in an indoor setting. Damp sheet rock, paint, wallpaper, insulation, carpet and other building materials can be host for it.

The cause of the problem can usually be traced to roof leaks; improperly sealed windows and doors; air conditioning and plumbing leaks; balconies, decks and shower installations. Deterioration of building materials and damage to structural members will occur if left unattended, and it could aslo be a problem after flooding. There is no practical way to eliminate all mold spores in the indoor environment, the way to control indoor mold growth is to control moisture.
