One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning Talks about Mold Prevention for Awareness Month
Sarasota, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Some might say it is just something that is "gross," others might feel it is not a big deal, but what many might not realize is that mold is a pretty serious issue. Some molds cause allergic reactions which can lead to a few serious side effects. However, more dangerous molds like Stachybotrys or Chaetomium could cause serious illnesses like chronic bronchitis, cancer and even multiple sclerosis, according to a recent article on Mold-Help.org. In recognition of Mold Awareness Month this September, One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning is explaining how serious mold is when not treated.
"Mold is something that many people don't think twice about, but if it grows and grows in your home, it could cause serious hazards," said Tab Hunter, president of Franchise Operations, Clockwork Home Services, franchisor of One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning. "Mold is an allergen and an irritant and is usually associated with damp, musty locations in the home, like bathrooms, garages, basements and attics – it can also form and spread in air conditioning and heating systems. We at One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning want to help community members prevent mold from forming and growing in their heating and air conditioning systems."
Hunter offers advice to help local residents combat mold spores that can breed in HVAC systems. "The most important thing is to keep everything clean and dry," Hunter said. "Mold thrives in damp and warm places, so decrease the humidity in your home by using a dehumidifier. Other steps include making sure there is proper ventilation in your home and seeing that air is circulating properly throughout each of the rooms."
One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning is a nationwide network of exceptional, time-conscious, courteous, highly competent HVAC professionals, Hunter said. One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning offers a wide range of services when it comes to heating and air conditioning.
