What are the possible health symptoms of a mold infestation?
The presence of mold and the associated dampness in the room can lead to some unpleasant side effects to your health. These can include a dry tickly feeling in your throat, nose and eyes. These symptoms can range from mild, to more severe for those that have any allergies to mold. Mold contains millions of microspores which when breathed into your lungs can cause a shortness of breath, or a wheezing sensation. This is especially true if you are unlucky enough to suffer from asthma or any other respiratory disease. If you are suffering from any of these symptoms, effective mold removal by experts is essential.
Is it safe to sleep in a room with a mold problem?
Mold is caused by high humidity and a lack of ventilation. This is often a problem in bathrooms and bedrooms. In your bedroom humidity is often high due to breathing all night, often with the windows closed. After all, nobody wants to leave their windows open all night during the winter months. The problem is that during the night you are likely to be breathing in these microspores. If you have the option you should move to a different room until full mold inspection and testing is completed, and a removal solution is executed.
Are different types of mold more dangerous to our health?
Exposure to all types of mold can have a negative effect on our health. Many news stories have suggested an increased danger from black mold. As we know mold is caused through moisture or dampness in our properties. If you are able to dry out the affected area, for example, during the summertime this can cause the mold to dry, releasing many toxic spores into the air. Whichever strain of mold you are experiencing it is important to seek professional help. We can offer you a complete range of services to help protect you and your families’ health.
