Wood Decay, Rot & Surface Fungi Discussed in New Online Video
The IAQ Video Network releases another educational video about important environmental, health & safety (EH&S) issues.
Termites and wood destroying insects have long been blamed for the destruction of wood used in buildings, but they are not the only culprits. Wood also makes for an ideal food source for many types of fungi. Fungi, commonly referred to as mold, can quickly begin to grow on or in wood materials when there is sufficient moisture and temperatures that are conducive for its growth.
“Some types of mold are primarily found growing on the surface of wood,” reported Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network and the new public outreach video. “Other types of fungi not only use the wood as a food source, but also cause decay by breaking down the wood fibers. We hope this video helps to shed some light on how mold can damage wood in a property and even cause health concerns if it becomes aerosolized.”
This educational video was sponsored by a number of organizations and leading industry professionals that help protect the public’s health. Sponsors include: EMSL Analytical, LA Testing, Mold Solutions, Clark Seif Clark, MBM Insurance Resource Center, EC2 and BioCure Environmental to name a few.
