Is Mold A New Construction Problem?
There can be mold in new construction, new homes, or buildings. If so, it is generally caused by building a property in a hurry. Maybe the circumstances are a rushed build, without enough commitment to drying time between laying foundations and then building over them. Moisture can be trapped inside walls and, thereby, lead to the growth of mold.
In other cases, the energy efficiency of a new property can cause mold. New homes are often sealed tight, keeping cold out and the heat in! This practice can trap moisture, and standing wetness almost always leads to mold. So airing and good ventilation have got to be a commitment.

What About VOCs?
VOC stands for Volatile Organic Compound and these can be emitted by building materials as well as carpeting, flooring, carpentry, and paint. New furniture, cleaning products and
personal care products may also emit VOCs.
VOCs can cause irritation to the eyes, nose, and throat and can lead to more serious conditions. In new construction VOC levels are more elevated right after construction is completed. This
will probably dissipate over time. SO again, regular ventilation of newly built homes and properties is recommended. This and trying to avoid bringing high VOC producing products into the home at all. Given a little research, there are many low VOC product options on the market.
