There are plenty of factors that affect the quality of the air inside the home—from pets to remodeling projects, and even the outside weather. The fall months signify the start of crisp and cooler temperatures and when many homeowners think about kicking on the furnace, making it prime time to consider sources of indoor pollutants and take steps to address them.
One common culprit is mold, which can appear at any time of year, but it is especially likely to turn up during the rainy season. It is, of course, also of particular concern following flooding of any kind, including that which has taken place after the recent hurricanes. Anytime there is water damage in your home, it’s essential to take immediate steps to prevent mold growth.
