Today I'd like to share some information about exposure to mold in the workplace. Between 50 to 100 common indoor mold types have the potential for creating health problems. The professionals at 1Source can help you recognize workplace hazards and health effects associated with mold hazards. 1Source will conduct an inspection and assessment of your company to address concerns regarding mold and its impact on indoor air quality.

Please feel free to e-mail me and we can set aside some time to discuss how we can assist you with any mold prevention or questions you may have for your company.
