sore throat and congestion are often caused by allergies. An allergy
simply stated is a person's sensitivity to a food or substance.
Most people will not react to a given item hence those who do are
said to have an allergy. Allergies can come from ingesting food,
direct contact with an item or inhalation (breathing). Inhalation
allergies can stem from pollen, dust mites, chemical gases, fungi
or mold. Most people who believe they have allergies focus on traditional
pollens and dust, however many times the allergy or reaction is
caused by mold growth that commonly can grow within the building
or from chemical gases in indoor air.
Air of course, is not a habitat for molds, but most molds disperse
their pores by air currents and therefore air is practically never
free of mold spores. Molds can be found either hidden around wet,
damp spots in the building or air duct and related components of
the air handling system.
Air: Although the introducing outside air into buildings is generally
considered to improve indoor air quality, the outside air can carry
allergy causing material. In outdoor air, the particular type and
concentration found at any given time depends on temperature, precipitation,
prevailing winds, seasonal climatic factors, sunlight, darkness
and atmospheric moisture.
is the untreated culprit, then one very effective method of the
elimination of active mold is the use of oxidation. This technology
is what mother nature has used for thousands of years to control
airborne pathogens. Research and tests show that mold surface growth
and sporulation are inhibited when exposed to reasonably small amounts
of charged oxygen which is a natural oxidizing agent. (see reference
document by Purdue University).
uses both ultraviolet lamps and corona plate discharge technologies
to charge oxygen for HVAC systems. Choosing the correct method will
solely depend on the application. See TriMed's product guide to
see how this environmentally safe system can work for you.
if there is mold there is water or moisture or humidity problem.
We strongly recommend that you find cause of the problem and fix
it. Remove as much moisture and humidity as possible. A dehumidifier
should be used to reduce the humidity. We strongly recommend that
you remove or dry any wet or moist material. It may be necessary
to remove moldy material. We strongly recommend that you wear protective
clothing, gloves and a breathing mask. Mold may penetrate walls
and cavities. Removed material must be disposed of in an accepted
manner. Use a suitable cleaning solution to wash surfaces that can
be cleaned. It may be advisable to have the work performed by a
