Who you gonna call? Concrobium Mold Control
There isn’t a lot that goes on within the confines of the mold fighting business that the general public would find particularly interesting until they actually required the services of a professional to help them out of a bad situation. The people who work in the mold remediation industry are specialists trained in getting rid of invisible intruders that may do harm to you and your family. It’s a model that, upon reflection, looks a lot like the set-up from the classic 80s Ivan Reitman comedy: Ghostbusters.
Turns out researchers at Clarkson University’s Engineering Department have taken things one step further and they believe that there may be a link between reports of hauntings in older homes and the presence of neurotoxins in the air released by mold!
Professor Shane Rogers admitted that he was always a fan of the paranormal growing up and that’s what initially led him to approach the investigation of paranormal activity using his skills in civil engineering.
“Hauntings are very widely reported phenomena that are not well-researched,” Rogers says. “They are often reported in older-built structures that may also suffer poor air quality. Similarly, some people have reported depression, anxiety and other effects from exposure to biological pollutants in indoor air. We are trying to determine whether some reported hauntings may be linked to specific pollutants found in indoor air.”
The Huffington post article is very thought provoking and well worth a read. And while there’s still a ways to go to prove the link between indoor air quality and paranormal phenomena, you don’t have to be a medium to know that mold spores in the air can have a negative impact on your health.
That’s why Concrobium Mold Control has partnered with restoration contractor and DIY television personality Mike Holmes to confront the issue of air quality head as part of Mike’s healthy homes initiative and is now an officially recognized Holmes Approved product.
“It’s about healthy homes. We know mold can reduce indoor air quality, and poor air quality affects our health,” said Mike Holmes. “Think of how much time we spend in our homes, especially during winter. So when we see mold we have to take it seriously. We address the root cause of the mold – the moisture issues – and we get rid of it using solutions that work, and that aren’t more toxic than the mold. My crew’s been using Concrobium Mold Control for years. It’s safe and it works.”
So if there’s something strange in your neighborhood, it might not actually be evils spirits, you might have a mold problem. Look around your house and check if there’s any evidence of water damage or moisture getting into the house and don’t reach for bleach (or your proton pack), treat any mold you find with safe, powerful Concrobium Mold Control.
