WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW…
Over the past few years, there has been an increasing awareness and concern over biological contaminants in dwellings and office buildings. These contaminants, when not removed or treated properly, can cause a “sick building.” This results when excessive amounts of molds, mildews, fungi or bacteria are present. Today, many buildings are sealed tightly for energy efficiency. This, in combination with high moisture conditions, promotes the excessive growth of biological contaminants.
Bio-hazards can also occur when there is bacterial growth of infectious materials from sewage backups. Special care must also be taken at trauma sites where there is blood or other bodily fluids. These materials, if left untreated, can cause allergic reaction and illness.
