Mold is a fungus, and like all fungi, it thrives in moist places. Mold spreads by emitting spores, microscopic particles often as small as a single cell. Molds are part of the natural environment. Outdoors, molds play a part in nature by breaking down dead organic matter, such as fallen leaves and dead trees. But indoors, mold growth should be avoided. Sometimes mold can form within the walls of the house or in places completely out of sight.
Wind Mitigation Inspections
Wind mitigation is the implementation of certain building techniques to limit the damage caused by intense wind. Some examples of these features are door/window coverings, how your roof is attached to your home, or how your roof is sealed to prevent water from entering. Wind mitigation helps protect the home from damage. Even if a home is insured, it is always costly when a house is damaged, both for the homeowner and the insurer. Repairs can take months, especially during material shortages that follow massive destruction to entire communities. If proper wind mitigation techniques are used, these expenses can be avoided altogether.
Air Quality Testing
Indoor air investigations can be challenging. There are many aspects to indoor air quality, including volatile organic compounds (VOCs), inorganic compounds, particulates, allergens, comfort factors, etc. One of the most difficult areas to look at is the VOCs, which are organic chemicals (containing primarily carbon and hydrogen) that vaporize easily at room temperature. There are thousands of different VOCs in indoor air from hundreds of sources, making both source identification and remediation plans challenging. Understanding the sources as well as how the VOCs will react to changing conditions, is crucial to improving air quality.
