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.
These guys are great. We had an energy audit done on our new house and these guys came out shortly afterwards to install insulation around our rim joists. We found them to be careful, courteous, and communicative. If they thought they could have done something better than what we proposed, they approached me and asked if it was ok and we said go ahead and do it. They sealed off our old dirt floor in our basement and meticulously put Poly-iso in the rim joists with spray foam to seal it. They even foamed every little hole in the basement that was going upstairs or outside. Our neighbors had them come out a couple months later and we know that they were very pleased as well. If I ever have the opportunity to hire The Energy Store again - we will certainly be happy to do that.
