One of the main reasons that we developed NAMM was because we are living in a reactive world when it comes to mold and moisture issues. We wait until we have a mold or moisture problem, then react to it in one way or another. While NAMM also promotes a healthy, better means of treating and controlling mold through BioRemediation.
Mold isn’t a cause, it’s an effect. Moisture isn’t even a cause, but again, another effect. The causes for mold and moisture issues are numerous, but in most cases, are preventable. A pipe bursting or a natural disaster can’t be avoided, a small roof leak that went undetected for years eventually leading to an enormous mold problem is.
The vast majority of mold problems are preventable, whether it is through better building techniques, improved inspections, enhanced maintenance or correcting lifestyle issues. There is no single industry to blame for the recent glut of mold problems, but because of the requirement to build more energy efficient structures, buildings no longer have the necessary ventilation to be able to breathe.
The key to preventing mold is Moisture Management, and it begins with Education. Please look at our FAQ’s page for more information. Remember, the only controllable factor to limiting mold growth is moisture.
