Over the past 20 years Mold has become more of a problem in
the coastal areas of the United States. Each year we hear and
see more homes and businesses having mold issues which
eventually become mold problems.
If Mold goes undetected and is allowed to mature it will
eventually cause many types of respiratory ailments and
trigger many allergy sufferers such as asthma.
Mold is hard to detect until it matures and changes to a color
you can see. But it usually begins behind walls and other
moist, wet areas of bathrooms or laundry rooms where it is
hidden from sight and is hard to determine for sure if you
have mold or not when it is hiding.
You see Mold is not always in an active state. It can grow in
a dormant state where it doesnít affect us. However, every 4
to 6 weeks it will wake up and release mold spores into the
air. These spores then are breathed into our lungs and cause
all kinds of allergic reactions and respiratory problems. Many
people just think they have a cold, flu or their normal
allergy symptoms are acting up. The mold then goes back to
sleep (becomes dormant) and all of the respiratory and allergy
symptoms improve. So, people never check to see if itís a mold
problem until they have a very bad infestation. Then it is
very expensive to get rid of.

So, we at Advanced Insulation have begun a new approach in the
war against Mold. TO PREVENT IT!! We realize it is much
