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 and basements is very common. Mold spores occur naturally in the outdoor air and will find a pathway to migrate inside. Mold growth on interior building surfaces indicate an interior moisture problem which could be detrimental to the occupants. Mold particles whether alive, dormant or dead impact the indoor air quality (IAQ), the health of occupants and can spread to other areas.
