MESSAGE from the Shameless Commerce Division here at AOM:
You may not know this, but a lot of us spend most of our time indoors – about 80 per cent, some studies say. Because air contaminants are invisible, most people can’t tell if the air they’re breathing in is good or bad.
Well, if you think you have mold – watch out.
In 2004, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) in the United States found “sufficient evidence” to link indoor exposure to mold with several health issues.
These include upper respiratory tract symptoms, such as coughing, wheezing, in otherwise healthy people. People with asthma, or compromised immune systems, were also affected.
“The IOM also found limited or suggestive evidence linking indoor mold exposure and respiratory illness in otherwise healthy children,” said the US Centre for Disease Control, commenting on the report.
Mold will grow anywhere – as long as there is moisture and cellulose nutrients for the organism to feed and grow. The release of mycotoxins can potentially be toxic, too, but because it is invisible to us, it can take many months before we start to see it in large colonies. Either that, or someone starts to fall sick.
AOM, a Singapore company, specializes in air quality testing and eliminating mold in homes, businesses, in household and commercial/industrial environments.
We don’t just remove the mold – we investigate in order to answer the question: Why is it here? And work methodically to identify all areas of contamination. Simply eliminating the mold will only take care of the problem temporarily. The reason behind the mold must also be addressed.
Many contractors in Singapore will not do mold removal because they do not have the equipment, education and insurance needed for this type of work. They may also not have necessary experience in Singapore’s humid environment conditions.
With years of experience backed by our partner Mold Busters in Canada, AOM will identify, eliminate and correct any air issues in an indoor environment.
