Can mold infestations cause serious allergic reactions and health problems? Does mold growth reduce the quality of your indoor air? The answer is YES. Read on to learn the importance of proper mold remediation.
Where Does Mold Grow?
Basement flooding is a common occurrence in some parts of the country. Once you have used a sump pump to remove the water, you still have another serious problem: mold. Mold spores will flourish in environments with high humidity.
Mold can be harmful to both human occupants, pets and your building materials. Damage to building materials might include carpeting, furniture and sheet-rock deterioration. Because the mold spores are so tiny, they can be difficult to see with the human eye.
Babies and pregnant women might be more susceptible to health problems caused by mold. Their bodies are more sensitive. You might even see some health problems in your cats and dogs.
Indoor Air Quality
Mold borne illnesses can impact your indoor air quality. Family members or workers might find it difficult to breathe – their productivity might suffer. Cross contamination can worsen the situation; in the worst case scenarios, the building might become completely uninhabitable.
Mold-Related Health Problems
There are a lot of different elements in the air, we breathe. It is not 100% oxygen. There is water vapor, smoke, foreign contaminants and mycotoxins.
Building occupants might suffer from allergic reactions if there are a high level of mycotoxins in the air. Symptoms of mold allergy include the following:
- Problems Breathing
- Throat Soreness
- Red Eyes
Everyone has a different sensitivity level to foreign contaminants. Your most sensitive building occupants are likely to suffer immediately; you should pay attention to their concerns. Health problems caused by mold will not disappear of their own accord.
The problem with mold growth is that it can occur rapidly. The mold grows in large colonies. That is why you should hire mold removal services as soon as possible.
