San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 13, 2014
Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) are modern conveniences that can, despite safeguards, become dangerous for normal living. Mold, dust, and other particles can accumulate inside the ducts and attic insulation, recycling throughout the house and the system for weeks at a time. This can exacerbate symptoms from lung and nasal ailments and, in some cases, actually cause sickness. If not inspected and serviced periodically, given the right conditions, buildups in attics and air systems can spawn life-threatening toxic molds.
Fortunately there are companies and insulation contractors like AttiCare.
AttiCare, a 15 year positive reputation company announces their new location in Secaucus, New Jersey. From this location, AttiCare serves the following areas: Bayonne, Bloomfield, Belleville, Clifton, Elizabeth, Edison, East Brunswick, Ewing, East Orange, Fort Lee, Fair Lawn, Garfield, Hackensack, Hoboken, Jersey City, Kearny, Linden, Lakewood, Long Branch, Livingston, Montclair, Newark, New Brunswick, Orange, Paterson, Passaic, Plainfield, Perth Amboy, Sayreville, Toms River, Teaneck, Union City, Union, Wayne, West New York, West Orange, and Westfield.
AttiCares’ range of services include attic insulation, insulation removal, and crawl space maintenance. Insulation, if not already present in a home, retains more heat throughout the structure, saving on utility costs. Sometimes, insulation becomes infested with rodents or other pests, and their by-products accumulate inside the heating/cooling systems. These wastes eventually dry out and evaporate, which releases toxic chemicals and microbes into the air, such as hantavirus.
This can also happen to crawl space insulation. Rats, mice, moths, and other vermin can also infest insulation areas, which can be a major headache if left out of control.
It is vital to control molds especially, as molds tend to reappear quickly unless completely neutralized. As part of AttiCare’s air duct repair service, they offer rodent control to mitigate and solve this issue as well.
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), most molds and other wastes are harmless, and only cause some irritation in sensitive people. Yet a few molds have potentially fatal effects. Collectively known as “black mold” - these truly dangerous molds produce toxins that can seriously damage respiratory systems. These toxins can produce headaches, chronic fatigue, and fever, as well as serious irritation to the eyes, mouth, and nose. Black mold is hard to spot without symptoms, but experts like those from AttiCare are able to identify it and ensure that proper steps are taken to deal with it.
