Obvious Reasons to Schedule a Mold Inspection if You Live in New York City
New York City and the surrounding areas are unfortunately a hotbox for air pollutants such as many types of mold. Extreme weather patterns and systems that have blown through the NYC area over the past 5 or so years is one of the main contributing factors for such a consistently high mold problem throughout the city. Flooding, abandoned building left to rot, poorly maintained apartment buildings and housing units, weather, wind, and the simple fact that buildings are so close in proximity to each other are all other reasons why there has been and will be a recurring mold problem for years to come.
