If water damage does occur, it’s critical to have it addressed as quickly as possible.

Mold can cause many health effects and are very commonly found in buildings reports the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Some people are sensitive to mold exposure and may develop a stuffy nose, sore throat, coughing, wheezing, burning eyes, or a skin rash. Asthmatics who are allergic to mold may have severe reactions and CDC warns that immunocompromised individuals, and people with chronic lung disease, could be at risk of getting lung infections from some types of mold.

Many building materials, furnishings and personal belongings will support the growth of mold if there is enough moisture present. This could be due to flood damage, elevated humidity levels, condensation, or water leaks. To help prevent indoor mold growth, CDC provides the following tips:

  • Control humidity levels
  • Promptly fixing leaky roofs, windows, and pipes
  • Thoroughly clean and dry after flooding
  • Ventilate shower, laundry, and cooking areas

“The key to preventing indoor mold growth is to control moisture,” said Frank Selamie, President of CTSI. “If water damage does occur, it’s critical to have it addressed as quickly as possible. At CTSI, we offer building owners and managers building inspections, testing, monitoring, and consulting services to identify issues related to elevated humidity levels, moisture problems, ventilation concerns, and mold growth. These services can help to prevent a mold problem from occurring in the first place or to effectively eliminate it if growth has already taken place.”

CTSI also recently sponsored an educational video that shares some of the CDC’s tips about preventing indoor mold growth. It can be seen at:
