Mold damage problems often manifest themselves in some fairly normal symptoms, such as allergic reactions, skin irritations, and respiratory problems. In many cases, it may not be immediately apparent that the source of the problem is mold. If you find that you are experiencing these conditions only when you are home, or if the symptoms worsen when you are at home, then mold is a distinct possibility. Those with compromised immune systems such as babies and the elderly may be at added risk for problems related to mold. Mold may also affect the health and well being of your pets.
Black mold is the most well known of all potential mold problems, and may cause all of the symptoms listed above as well as severe headaches. In many cases, mold may grow for some time within the home before it is discovered and treated. By this point it will have grown beyond the ability of most homeowners to successfully remediate. Remember that it is never enough to simply kill mold….the environment must be treated in order to make it inhospitable for mold growth. This involves improving ventilation in the affected area and reducing the levels of moisture and humidity.
Professional help is suggested for another reason….working with mold may accidentally release hundreds of thousands of mold spores into the air within your home. These will be dangerous if inhaled, and they may also drift into other areas and cause mold growth in other areas of the home.
Professional mold remediation companies will know how to properly treat the mold problem in your home without causing additional problems or risking the health of you and your family. They will be able to articulate a clear and concise plan for dealing with your mold problem and tell you exactly how they plan to prevent the mold from returning.
While most molds are not dangerous, they should still be treated. Since mold destroys the surface it grows on, even if the mold is not a threat to your health, it may cause serious damage to your structure, rotting the wood and breaking down the metal components. Mold does not have to be a health hazard to be a significant threat.
