Moisture is the biggest problem for most buildings, be it commercial or residential. This problem is caused by a variety of reasons such as major or minor rain showers, poor ventilation in homes, hot and humid climate. This aggravates the chances of mold growth and germination of termites.
The moisture in basements, attics, and crawl spaces affects structural and building safety. Apart from this, it adversely affects the indoor air quality as inhabitants inhale contaminants in the form of mold and mildew through the air they breathe, which leads to asthma and allergy in the long run. The number of asthma patients has increased exponentially in the last 3 decades. More than 200 mycotoxins have been identified in homes.
Another big problem is that the problem caused by moisture is often difficult to detect, but it can affect every part of your building such as kitchen, basement, laundry facilities, crawl space, and attic.
