Certified Mold Inspections - NADCA, IAQC & IAQA

Mold ... It grows everywhere, but mostly in areas where moisture collects - places like ventilation ducts that recirculate temperature and humidity regulated air back to the residential environment.

It doesn't stop there - Common building materials, such as fiber, upholstery, wood, drywall, paper and dust also serve as breeding grounds. And once it starts to grow, its spread is difficult to control and reverse. Mold reproduces through spores that can get suspended in air for extended period of time.

Once airborne, mold can be inhaled and pass through the nasal passage to cause various health problems, such as:

  • Nasal stuffiness
  • Throat irritation
  • Coughing or wheezing
  • Sinus
  • Asthma
  • Headache / Fever
  • Eye irritation
  • Skin rashes
  • Diarrhea
  • Pneumonitis
Mold Formation

Moist places, such as leaking roofs and pipes, are breeding grounds for mold.

Even if the room environment is dry, mold can make its way into buildings through vents, doorways, windows, and heating and air conditioning systems. Once mold takes root, it replicates rapidly on paper products, cardboard, ceiling tiles and wood products.

The Importance of Working With a State Licensed Air Conditioning Contractorstate-licensed-air-conditioning-contractor

To deal with the problems arising from slowly deteriorating IAQ, commercial and industrial facilities need to ensure that the AC ducts are cleaned and serviced regularly and that their equipment has been optimized in accordance with ASHRAE standards.

The reality is that with so much at stake, it does not pay to work with unlicensed contractors who often lack the education, hands-on training and cutting edge technologies granted by state licensing.

As a certified member in good standing of the Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA), Core is an industry leading HVAC service provider and offers varied services to improve ventilation and system optimization. In addition, Core offers repair, maintenance and often total system replacements to industrial and commercial facilities.
