Founded in 2009, by James C. Watson, our main priority is to help our customers live healthier lives. Another major objective is to create education and awareness of the health concerns surrounding asbestos and mold and this is the reason we continually update our website with content posted on our blog.
Indoor air quality is essential to one’s health because we spend most of our time indoors.
Asbestos is only a concern if the materials become friable and air borne, so it is very important that you do not disturb asbestos containing materials. The health risks linked to asbestos include mesothelioma, which is a form of lung cancer, and asbestosis. We have posted many articles on asbestos over the years to create further awareness. Please educate yourself and visit this page for more information.
With respect to mold, more and more research is being released that speculates that mold may be the cause of asthma, MS, Parkinson’s, cancer, and other illnesses, including chronic inflammatory response syndrome. The other major concern with mold is that it literally eats away at the property it is feeding on eventually creating structural damage ultimately degrading the value of the property. Mold is not just a health problem but a structural one with a long term economic cost on society.
One of the key services Got Mold? offers is mold inspections, which we believe are essential for on-going household maintenance, particularly if health issues become worse. In addition, if you are thinking about buying a new home then a mold inspection should be part of the buying process. There are so many places that mold can be in a home, many undetected, because moisture and mold issues can be hidden. For this reason, we highly recommend that you invest in a mold inspection before purchasing a home because most home inspectors are not trained in mold detection and mold remediation is costly, so it is better to be safe than sorry.
