Protecting Ductwork and Cold Water Piping From Mold
There are more than 100,000 known species of mold. Mold spores are everywhere, indoors and outdoors, on our clothes, in our building materials, and in the air we breathe. We can’t avoid them, but we can minimize their potential for growth in our buildings. And we should. Mold is a common allergen; it exacerbates asthma, and can cause respiratory problems. It can also have far reaching legal consequences for owners and others in the construction industry.
