Mold - Detection, Prevention and Remediation
Is there mold on your property? Undetected and untreated, mold can cause health issues and considerable property damage. Mold occurs naturally in the environment but it grows in areas of excessive moisture. Mold and mildew exposure may trigger allergic reactions, asthma, and other respiratory complaints. Insurance claims for mold damage and exposure have gone as high as $195 million. Real estate managers who want to protect themselves from liability, and their residents and properties from the effects of mold can use this IREM interactive tool: "Mold: Detection, Prevention, Remediation" to find out where mold might be hiding and what to do about it.
