Managing the interior space of a building is critical to the well-being of the occupants, whether it is a home, institutional, commercial, municipal or industrial space. Water damage (such as excess humidity, water intrusion, leaks, floods, ice dams, fire, etc.) is the leading cause of mold growth on interior building surfaces. Here in New England, mold growth in attics is very common. Mold spores occur naturally in the outdoor air and will find a path inside and can colonization on moist surfaces. If mold growth occurs on interior building surfaces, it can be detrimental to the occupants and points to an interior moisture problem.
Mold particles, whether alive, dormant or dead impact the indoor air quality (IAQ), the health of occupants and can spread to other areas. It is crucial to hire a professional remediation firm that follows proper remediation protocols.
