For those wonderful newer structures now located in San Jose, there is the possibility of indoor air circulation issues. While most structural plans and materials nowadays take into account the importance of good indoor air quality for workers, the truth of the matter is that large, tightly insulated high-rises run the risk of air circulation problems and stale air quality, especially in a warm climate where the A/C is running constantly.

However, like most of California, San Jose also sports a high cost of living that is clearly visible in its housing industry. With a city as old as San Jose, there are numerous older dwellings and structures that are sometimes the only affordable housing options. Many do-it-yourselfers are putting their best efforts into restoring older properties and creating homes for their families.


While revitalizing old properties is a worthwhile task, often both economically and aesthetically, there are certain caveats that need to be considered when dealing with older dwellings. Mold inspection and indoor air quality testing are highly suggested because of the probability of releasing particle contaminants into the air and breathing or touching the mold spores.

The complex microclimates of the Bay Area allow for fog and damp conditions on a regular basis, especially in the mornings. Dampness and particle contaminants, such as mold spores, trapped inside a building are the primary breeding grounds for indoor mold colonies. This is especially true of older properties that may have potential roof or wall leaks and have older pipes with a tendency to burst under the occasional frost conditions which exist in the greater Bay Area.

Whenever water, dampness, or fog meets dormant and invisible airborne mold spores, mold growth can start to occur. This is why it is so important to have a mold inspection by a professional environmental services company.

Mold handling is a dangerous procedure because it can be inhaled, touched, or even ingested in some cases, to cause potential personal harm. Mold identification is also a tricky business, as there are literally hundreds of thousands of types of mold.

They exist in a harmless, natural condition when living outdoors with moving air flow, but they are problematic when trapped in a stagnant condition indoors and allowed to grow. Some molds produce allergic reactions, especially among those people already compromised by allergy or asthma. Some molds can produce infections, especially among those with sensitive health issues and compromised immune systems. Other molds are just plain toxic and can cause serious health challenges to just about anyone. A professional company can test, identify, and inspect in many difficult to access locations, such as crawlspaces, behind walls, and other remote areas of a building.
