What do mold and mildew do to indoor air quality?

Mold can severely affect your health.

Mold spores become airborne easily and spread quickly throughout your property – and into your body. Spores are microscopic, and just because you cannot see mold contamination doesn’t mean that it’s not there.

If you’re looking for the causes of mold, you should look for humidity build-up, moisture intrusion, and water damage. Property owners have to be careful because water damage is not always obvious or visible. Often it is completely hidden from sight behind walls, underneath carpets, or under floors. Left untouched, they can lead to mold growth in as little as 24 hours.

Places like the bathroom, attic and basement are the most prone to moisture problems like leaks, high humidity, condensation and flooding. Given the variety of possible mold contaminations, it’s important to have the right air quality and mold testing tools.

Mold Busters uses two of the most advanced processes for air quality testing – meaning it can detect even microscopic mold: viable sampling and non-viable sampling. Professionals understand the advantages and drawbacks of both, but these are the best tools available for identifying mold and assessing indoor air quality.
