Prevent Mold Growth at Your Property
Keep Your Employees Healthy
How to Control Mold Growth
- Fix anything that is leaking. That includes pipes, windows, and roofs. A leaking structure or pipe that isn’t fixed will eventually cause mold growth and damage the structure that is absorbing its moisture. Most people discover a leaking roof or pipe when they see secondary damage to their home, like a small pool of water on the floor or a water spot on their ceiling.
- Control the humidity in your home. Mold likes to grow in high humidity. An appropriate humidity level for your home is 40-50% Relative Humidity (RH). In the winter months, it may be lower than 40% RH. You can purchase a home hygrometer and temperature gauge under $20 at your local Home Depot/hardware store.
- Ventilate humid areas. Humid areas in homes are typically the kitchen, shower, and laundry areas where warm water is used. After doing any of these activities, turn on your ventilation fan to prevent any damages.
- Hire an experienced and proven water damage cleanup company.If your property experiences flooding, hire a company with a record of successfully cleaning water damages from properties. This company should extract water and monitor your property as it dries. Ask for documentation to verify your structure has been properly dried.

Stay Disaster Ready With Commercial Property Insurance
If you’re running a business, and haven’t taken Commercial Property Insurance in consideration, you’re taking a huge risk. And here’s why:
- Most insurers offer comprehensive, business pack insurance bundles – it’s never been simpler to cover your property’s entire contents. You’re missing out on protection for your materials, tools and other operational equipment.
- Today’s business environment is far too unpredictable – With the nature of 2018’s economic environment becoming significantly less predictable by the month, can you really afford not to be covered?
Never assume that every aspect of your small business is covered. When consulting a Commercial Property insurance professional, you will be able to ask questions and they will look deeper into the fine print. An insurance professional will be able to confirm that there’s a mutual understanding of inclusions and exclusions, and what you need protected is specifically mentioned in the cover.
With a general business insurance policy, there will often be categories such as flood damage and sensitive conditions to look out for. For example, things like whether your building is classed as residential or not.

What Is Asbestos?
Is Asbestos Harmful?
What is Asbestos?
Asbestos is a mineral fiber that occurs in rock and soil.
Where Can I Find Asbestos?
Because of its fiber strength and heat resistance asbestos has been used in a variety of building construction materials for insulation and as a fire retardant.
Asbestos has also been used in a wide range of manufactured goods, mostly in building materials (roofing shingles, ceiling and floor tiles, paper products, and asbestos cement products), friction products (automobile clutch, brake, and transmission parts), heat-resistant fabrics, packaging, gaskets, and coatings.
- Attic and wall insulation produced containing vermiculite
- Vinyl floor tiles and the backing on vinyl sheet flooring and adhesives
- Roofing and siding shingles
- Textured paint and patching compounds used on walls and ceilings
- Walls and floors around wood-burning stoves protected with asbestos paper, millboard, or cement sheets
- Hot water and steam pipes coated with asbestos material or covered with an asbestos blanket or tape
- Oil and coal furnaces and door gaskets with asbestos insulation
- Heat-resistant fabrics
- Automobile clutches and brakes
How Can People Be Exposed to Asbestos?
Asbestos fibers may be released into the air by the disturbance of asbestos-containing material during product use, demolition work, building or home maintenance, repair, and remodeling.
In general, exposure may occur only when the asbestos-containing material is disturbed or damaged in some way to release particles and fibers into the air.
Health Effects From Exposure to Asbestos
Exposure to asbestos increases your risk of developing lung disease. That risk is made worse by smoking. In general, the greater the exposure to asbestos, the greater the chance of developing harmful health effects.
Disease symptoms may take many years to develop following exposure.
Asbestos-related conditions can be difficult to identify.
Healthcare providers usually identify the possibility of asbestos exposure and related health conditions like lung disease by taking a thorough medical history.
This includes looking at the person’s medical, work, cultural and environmental history.
After a doctor suspects an asbestos-related health condition, he or she can use a number of tools to help make the actual diagnosis.
Some of these tools are physical examination, chest x-ray and pulmonary function tests. Your doctor may also refer you to a specialist who treats diseases caused by asbestos.
Three of the major health effects associated with asbestos exposure are:
- lung cancer
- mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer that is found in the thin lining of the lung, chest and the abdomen and heart
- asbestosis, a serious progressive, long-term, non-cancer disease of the lungs
Information for Owners and Managers of Buildings that Contain Asbestos
Lead & Asbestos
In this Blog, you'll find information on federal requirements for the renovation and demolition of buildings that contain asbestos.
It also provides guidance on developing and maintaining an operations and maintenance program to manage asbestos-containing materials in buildings.
Public and non-profit private schools have distinct regulatory requirements for the management of asbestos.
Renovation and Demolition Requirements
The National Emission Standards for Hazordous Air polluntants(NESHAP) regulations under the Clean Air Act specify work practices for asbestos to be followed during demolitions and renovations of all structures, installations, and buildings (excluding residential buildings that have four or fewer dwelling units).
The regulations require the owner of the building or the operator to notify the appropriate state agency before any demolition, or before any renovations of buildings that could contain a certain threshold amount of asbestos or asbestos-containing material.
In addition, particular manufacturing and fabricating operations either cannot emit visible emissions into the outside air or must follow air cleaning procedures, as well as follow certain requirements when removing asbestos-containing waste.
