The presence of high levels of mold can occur anytime there has been a water leak or elevated humidity levels in a building. Once present, airborne mold can produce allergens, irritants, and in some cases, toxic substances known as mycotoxins. Mold is also an asthma trigger for many and can cause a condition known as hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP). Exposure to high levels of mold can even cause people who were previously not allergic to mold to become highly sensitive to its presence.
“Most buildings are full of construction materials, furnishings and belongings that will act as a food source for mold when moisture is present,” said Harry Pena, President of Zimmetry Environmental, the Caribbean’s mold and indoor air quality experts. “Just removing the mold isn’t enough unless the root cause of the moisture issue is addressed. Without fixing the moisture problem, the mold will just grow back. At Zimmetry, our building science professionals are trained to identify indoor pollutants and the cause of the problem so that real solutions can be implemented to protect building occupants from exposure risks.”
In addition to indoor mold problems, Zimmetry has experts ready to take action to identify and resolve sick building, environmental compliance, asbestos, lead-based paint, Phase IESAs and general environmental consulting issues.
