Air Quality Management & Remediation
Water infiltration and the presence of moisture is directly linked to the development of Molds and Fungi. An immediate response to water infiltration - within 24 to 48 hours - and a thorough clean up, drying, and/or removal of water-damaged materials is essential to prevent or limit mold and fungi growth. If the source of water is due to elevated humidity, relative humidity should be maintained at levels below 60% to inhibit mold and fungi growth. Emphasis should be placed on ensuring the proper repairs to the building infrastructure, so that water damage and moisture buildup do not recur.
Moisture problems in buildings can be caused by a variety of conditions, including condensation, excess humidity, roof, foundation, and plumbing leaks. Some moisture problems have been linked to changes in building construction practices during the past twenty to thirty years. These current practices have resulted in more tightly sealed buildings that may not allow moisture to escape easily.
