Spring is just on its last legs as higher temperatures are paving the way for the arrival of summer. While trips to the pool or to the beach is always on the to-do list for the coming vacation there are some problems that we have to deal with first before we begin our carefree get-away.
We can expect severe weather to become more frequent and brutal. Just last Friday, heavy rain drenched parts of Virginia, Maryland and D.C:
Parts of central Virginia received more than 2½ inches of rain Friday. In the Charlottesville area, officials reported road damage, downed trees and dozens of closed roads.
At a youth camp near Palmyra, nine horses were stranded by flood waters near the Rivanna River. Workers moved the animals to a pasture by Friday afternoon.
About 1,800 Dominion Virginia Power customers lost power.

Our windows have a very important task that regulates the entry of light, heat, wind and moisture into our home. Well-insulated and well-sealed windows are the key to keeping the home comfortable and weather-resistant – especially against torrential rain.
One particular problem after heavy rain is moisture buildup. This might be a trivial matter to some, but if your they are not capable of keeping the moisture out, then you might have mold problem on your hands. Why is it such a problem inside the house? The EPA has this to say about the health hazards that mold can cause:
Molds are usually not a problem indoors, unless mold spores land on a wet or damp spot and begin growing. Molds have the potential to cause health problems. Molds produce allergens (substances that can cause allergic reactions), irritants, and in some cases, potentially toxic substances (mycotoxins).
