Silent and invisible to the naked eye, the air we breathe in our homes and workplaces can lead to health problems, absenteeism, medical costs, reduced productivity and lower earnings. Nationally, Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) results in cumulative losses in excess of $60 billion. Mold is a leading cause of indoor air quality issues especially in South Florida, a natural breeding ground with all the elements necessary to support mold growth. There is a silver lining – taking proactive measures to avoid potential problems and responding to air quality issues in a timely manner. There are 100,000 species of mold and 1,000 are common in the U.S. Addressing mold and other airborne contaminants now will circumvent their stealthy intrusion into the lungs of workers and residents later.
