WHY MOLDOutdoors, molds play a part in nature by breaking down organic matter. Indoors, mold growth should be avoided. Molds reproduce by means of spores that are invisible to the naked eye and float through the air. Mold begins growing indoors when mold spores land on surfaces that are wet. There are many types of mold and none of them will grow without water or moisture.
HOW MOLD AFFECTS YOUR HEALTHMold has the potential to cause health problems producing allergens, irritants, and in some cases, potentially toxic substances. Molds can also cause asthma attacks, irritate the eyes, skin, nose, throat and lungs.
RESIDENTIAL AND COMMERCIAL MOLD TESTINGTesting for mold should be conducted by professionals who are certified in mold detection. The certified professionals at The Energy Store perform residential and commercial mold testing to include visual testing, swab testing, tape testing and air testing.
I hired the Energy Store for my insulation projects (attic and basement). Pete and Matt were great at explaining the different types of insulation and their uses. They came up with creative solutions to a few of my tricky issues. Only took half a star off because the attic wasn't cleaned up after the blown-in cellulose, so I had to sweep it up. But I would definitely hire them again! They are easy to work with and great people! Thanks guys!
