With old, ineffective, or inefficient air ducts, you’ll be costing yourself time, money, and comfort.
Discovering mold in your home can surely feel like a nightmare. As an unwanted toxin that can rapidly spread without warning, it’s no wonder people dread the mere thought of it. While some people believe that mold is most prevalent in warm and humid regions, mold can also exist in cooler climates if it is presented with the right conditions.
