As a professional in the indoor air quality industry, you’re likely to be intimately familiar with how summer can herald all manner of airborne contaminants — especially that of mold.
Thus, as the season prepares for its final wave of intensity, you’re no doubt looking for a few ways to take advantage of the remaining summer months. After all, what better way to enhance your brand reputation than by providing trustworthy mold inspections?
That’s why we’re here today to spread a few tips of our own when it comes to the matter of summer growth:
Where Mold Growth Meets Business Growth
It’s no secret that moisture breeds mold. That’s why, if you have a large service area, consider increasing your attention within certain communities based on their rainfall averages in the summer.
For example, if you serve the greater Tampa Bay region of Florida, you might know that U.S. Climate Data reveals the following:
- Rainfall averages in Tampa sit at about 2.23 inches in January and jump to 6.68 inches in June.
- Rainfall averages in Sarasota, on the other hand, are approximately 2.49 inches in January and jump up to 7.51 inches in June.
While the two cities experience only about an inch’s worth of a difference by the start of the summer season, that may still provide you with insight as to which areas may suffer more mold growth throughout the season. Thus, you may further develop customer relationships in those areas.
Additionally, come time to inspect a customer’s property, don’t forget to inquire about small summer details that may fall through the cracks. Not only is this another means of remaining diligent while on-site, but your customers will also be educated and, therefore, empowered by your expertise.
For example, the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) specifies that sippy cups, water toys, pool garments, and more are all household items that often go overlooked in terms of summer mold prevention.
Other Invasive Opportunities
While the summer season may offer a welcome reprieve from the cold for those professionals operating in snow-laden states, it also raises another question worth asking: How often are your customers leaving their windows open to enjoy the temperate breeze?
“Mold can enter your home through open doorways, windows, vents, and heating and air conditioning systems,” according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
Thus, if a customer has skylights that open, tall windows, narrow attics, or other such difficult-to-reach nooks and crannies, InstaScope may prove a valuable testing tool for your business model.
Additionally, should any other biological airborne contaminants prove more invasive than expected in a customer’s home — such as with viruses — InstaScope will also be able to identify and report the overload biological load of the other contaminant(s) in question.
