Scott takes an approach to educate his customers about the health risks associated with poor indoor air quality, the source of the environmental issue and remediation steps. In the light environmental business, communicating essential facts to the customer is a necessary step. To illustrate this, some basic environmental facts are detailed below.
Mold is a common fungus found almost everywhere, inside and outside, year round. There are literally thousands of species of mold in Southern Colorado. Mold grows where there is moisture and oxygen, multiplying as small, microscopic spores. As mold travels through the air, it attaches to structures in and around homes and buildings. Once mold takes hold, it can cause discoloration and damage to drywall, flooring and other materials.
Mold that is left undetected can multiply quickly and lead to serious structural damage, dramatically lowering the value of your home or building. Real estate agents report that homes and buildings are harder to sell if mold is found and not remediated properly by a certified mold removal company, like AdvantaClean of Pikes Peak.
Air Duct Cleaning Facts
Air ducts are associated with heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system and are the pathways for heated or cooled air to travel throughout a home or building, just like a person's circulatory system. The air a person breathes is carried through the ductwork, out through vents where it can pick up dust and other microspores that have attached to the duct walls, and then recirculates repeatedly.
Since ductwork is often located out of sight behind walls or above ceilings, air duct cleaning can be easy to ignore. But neglect can lead to long term air quality issues. It is important to perform HVAC maintenance like air duct cleaning to eliminate contaminants in the ductwork and indoor air like dust, mold and bacteria. Additionally, air duct cleaning will improve a system’s efficiency, which lowers energy bills!
