One of the challenging things about living or working in a building with poor indoor air quality is that many indoor pollutants are odorless, colorless, and invisible to the naked eye.  To further complicate matters, these pollutants can affect each person quite differently. Exactly how it affects each person depends on a variety of factors, such as age, preexisting conditions, type of pollutant, dose, and duration of exposure.

Please join us for an insightful interview with Dr. Jaban Moore where we work our way through the body, discussing the different ways mold, mycotoxins, and other pollutants common in water-damaged buildings can negatively affect your health. In many ways, mold is like the straw that broke the camel’s back.  To learn how, be sure to check out this interview!
