With public awareness growing daily, one of the largest liability concerns today is the control of mold and mildew. When mold spores land on a damp spot indoors, they begin expanding, digesting whatever they are growing on in order to survive. All molds have the potential to cause health effects, and may produce allergens that can trigger allergic reactions. Moisture control is the key to inhibiting mold growth. Moisture problems should be investigated promptly, and plans should be set to dry any wet, non-moldy materials within 48 hours to prevent mold growth. URI has extensive experience in structural drying and mold remediation within both commercial and residential buildings, and works very closely with certified industrial hygienists, who can provide testing, a scope of damage, and a plan of action.
