Often defined as IAQ, indoor air quality may be the source of many specific issues. Mold, fungi, and gas are only a few of the major names that can contaminate the IAQ. These are all dangerous to your health-especially if you have asthma.

The most famous home invader may be called mold. It’s pretty straightforward to stop, but getting rid of if it’s still in the house may be quite a hassle. Mold can often require the destruction of whole walls if not taken care of in due time. The frustrating thing about mold is that if it is left untreated the problem will only continue to spread. Not only that even areas where you can’t see it are often often! The fungus may cause leaky tubing, humidity, poor ventilation, etc. The basic theory is that mold is often in some shape connected with moisture. It might be because the dry wall wasn’t drying fast enough or it might be because the building is getting into cracks due to the moisture. Whatever the cause, only know that mold is NOT something you want in your home. In addition to environmental risks, moulds are rather prejudicial to the base of a structure. Owing to excessive mold / moisture the base may become unstable and deteriorate with time everything.

The way to get rid (or remedy) of mold is by first monitoring the indoor air condition. There are infrarot measurements that will practically determine where even if not apparent to the naked eye, the trouble areas are. When an concern is detected, then remediation measures are required to get the air quality back to acceptable levels.

When you fear your building could have low IAQ, have your building checked is strongly urged. Stuff like Carbon Monoxide, Radon, and Mould are not items that you would want to have roommates. Get your indoor air quality checked and recommend certain preventive maintenance strategies such as dehumidifiers, air purifiers, and duct cleaning to insure your living space is healthy.
