The air quality in your space is an integral part of keeping the overall quality of life high for you and your residents. The risks of asbestos and mold are significant if left unchecked and untreated.
Though they originate from different sources, asbestos and mold are equally dangerous when present. One of the major differences between the two is that asbestos originates as a mineral and is something deliberately added to various construction renovation materials commonly used in home building and renovation projects prior to 1980.
Mold on the other hand is a biological hazard; a natural fungus that breeds and festers over time.
Many things that are naturally produced can pose a threat to human health and therefore be considered a biohazard.
