Indoor Air Quality

8/15/2016 (Permalink)

Mold is found naturally in our environments.  However, an overabundance inside buildings is undesirable; some people can become ill.  Experts agree that if you have excessive mold, it needs to be removed.

Control Moisture and Reduce Mold

Act Within the First 24 to 48 Hours

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

Proper Maintenance Saves Money

The World Health Organization estimates that poor indoor air quality costs $60 billion in employee sick leave and lost production.  Proper Maintenance and prompt response to situations that could lead to an illness or health concern is a responsibility owed to tenants, workers and/or students.    

Dirty ducts can work to circulate odors and contaminants like mold and irritating dust throughout the building.  Inspecting the ductwork is SERVPRO’s first order of business when addressing air quality.
