An inspection by The American Council of Life Insurers (ACLI) revealed that there are many clogged drain systems across the country that could be a potential source of mold growth.
According to the report, there are a number of things that are commonly clogged with mold including:Paint, tiles, electrical, plumbing, sinks and appliances.
In the past, there have been a number that have been identified as the root cause of mold problems.
In most cases, though, these were the culprits of the problem.
However, with the introduction of new technologies and equipment, these types of clogs have become much more common.
The ACLI’s latest report comes on the heels of the introduction last year of the new, improved MFR (Mold Free) test, which measures a potential amount of mold in a drain.
The test allows businesses to identify the problem in an area, so that they can begin the remediation process to get rid of it.
