Is Your Home or Business Sick?

9/23/2016 (Permalink)

According to the World Health Organization, poor indoor air quality costs $60 billion in sick time and lost production.

Poor air quality within buildings and homes can have a detrimental effect on infants and children, pregnant women, and the elderly, as well as individuals with compromised immune systems and respiratory systems and asthma and allergies.

Mold is the main culprit for poor indoor air quality, and while found naturally in the environment, an overabundance within buildings and homes can make people ill. The EPA estimates that 50 to 100 common indoor mold types have the potential for creating health problems.

While it is impossible to eliminate all mold and mold spores, growth can be reduced by controlling moisture within your home or business:

  • Correct any water leaks or standing water
  • Remove standing water under cooling coils or air handling units
  • Properly maintain humidifiers
  • Replace wet or visibly moldy insulation materials
