The Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal is one of the world’s premier car racing events but despite the glamour and the big money prizes, organizers are battling a foe many homeowners will find familiar – mold.
The so-called paddocks that will house the most famous race car drivers in the world suffers from mold and fungi infestation. Employees have been complaining about the same issues for three years, according to reports. Carpets (notorious for being mold-friendly) were changed and the paddocks painted last summer in an attempt to control the problem but crews say it’s now worse than ever.
Seasonal Structures and Mold
The trailers that make up the paddock area were added to the Grand Prix grounds a few years ago and the perennial problems with mold underscore the problem with trailers and other seasonal structures in general when it comes to mold- they’re not designed to be entirely weatherproof and our harsh climate gets inside. A little moisture goes a long way and when the structure isn’t occupied or maintained for a good part of the year, it’s a recipe for mold to flourish.
We Can Help
Just as seasonal structures are vulnerable, so are those hidden nooks and crannies in your basement, attic, underneath sinks and windows… all of these areas are mold prone and you may never know it’s beginning to infest your home.
However, sooner or later you’ll feel the results. If you experience:
- · Chronic eye, nose and throat irritation
- · Worsening allergies despite medication
- · Persistent dry cough
- · Difficulties breathing
- · Other flu-like symptoms you can’t explain by any known cause
Then you owe it to yourself and the health of your family to be sure.
