Do you have mold or musty smells in your home? If you do, it is time to take action!
John Hassler, owner of Indoor Environmental Management was recently featured in Moms Everday.com speaking about signs of the presence of mold in homes, and why it is important to get rid of it.
Indoor Environmental is a full service environmental engineering firm, serving Tallahassee and all of Northern Florida, including Pensacola, Gainesville, Jacksonville and Orlando.
According to John, Florida's hot climate and high humidity create the perfect environment for mold to thrive inside homes.
Mold might be present in a home for a while, before they become visible. Areas like the crawl space, can harbor serious mold growth that goes undetected for many years, leading to structural damage to the property. Common signs of mold problems include: Odors, high indoor humidity levels, warping and creaking floors.
John urges homeowners to take care of the problem as soon as possible because as long as the conditions for mold growth are present, there will be mold amplification, and the problem will only get worse.
Besides the odors and the potential to compromise the structural integrity of the house, mold spores are the second leading indoor allergen in the U.S. and known to trigger mild to severe upper respiratory symptoms including asthma. Children, the elderly and people with sensitivities or compromised immune systems are specially susceptible.
