Poor quality air creates a host of problems
One of the most critical environmental issues for buildings and residential homes is poor air quality. Constantly breathing in bad air can cause many short term and long term problems in both residential and commercial properties. Headaches, fatigue, skin and eye irritation are just a few of the short term effects of poor air quality and mold. Long term health effects can be even more severe as residents breathe in hidden pollutants and bacteria. These factors usually result in lower productivity and increased costs for businesses that suffer from poor quality air.
Mold directly affects air quality
The quality of air can decline due to a number of mechanical and environmental factors. One of the more dangerous causes is mold formation. Air quality and mold is one of the more critical causes as the fungus can grow in hidden and inaccessible spaces and can easily take over walls and structures if not removed. Mold releases airborne spores and bacteria that can easily be consumed by humans within the space. Breathing air contaminated by mold spores will lead to quality of life issues and increased short and long term health risks. Mold detection and removal are the next essential steps when lower quality or bad air is confirmed through testing.
What can cause bad air quality and mold?
A low quality air situation can be created by a number of mechanical and physical factors. Proper airflow and venting within the structure is critical in maintaining air quality but biological problems such as mold must be detected and removed fully to improve the breathable air. Mold is a nagging problem for property owners as the fungus can easily find places to grow. Poorly ventilated areas with high humidity are excellent breeding grounds for mold to develop and fester. Walls and fixtures around appliances that use heat and hot water should also be checked for the fungus. Mold and bacteria spores travel freely through the air it is essential to have a removal plan in place once the organisms are detected to prevent adverse short and long term health effects.
