Mold remediation is the removal, cleaning, sanitizing, demolition, or other treatment, of mold or mold-contaminated matter that was not purposely grown at that location. If you have mold in your home, you many be wondering, how did this happen? Mold usually finds it’s way into homes via a leak or in naturally damp places like basements. If left untreated, it can continue to grow and spread. So, what’s the big deal? Some of you may be thinking, “I like to grow things, in fact I have the best garden in the neighborhood.” While receiving the blue ribbon for best cucumber is quite admirable, growing mold in your home is quite the opposite. Bottom line: mold is bad for your health and your home.
Health Effects of Black Mold
Mold or black mold specifically, is found in areas of the home that are prone to dampness (such as basements), areas around any leaks and virtually anywhere else that is consistently damp or wet. Black mold or any mold affects the body in the form of an allergic reaction. A mold allergy can cause itchy, watery eyes, runny or stuffy nose, sneezing, dry skin and coughing (Mayo Clinic, 2021). Furthermore, mold can affect those with respiratory issues such as asthma. For those with asthma, symptoms can include wheezing, shortness of breath, coughing, tightness in the chest and can trigger a severe asthma attack (Mayo Clinic, 2021). Mold is not only bad for your health, but also your home.
