YOUR HEALTH IS OUR #1 CONCERN!
Mold in your home can have devastating effects on your health. Mold releases a variety of allergens, irritants, and mycotoxins that can contaminate the air that you breathe. The symptoms listed below could be caused by mold growth in or around your home or business.
1. Recurring Headaches
2. Difficulty Breathing, Asthma, or Respiratory Infections
3. Excessive Coughing or The Feeling of Not Getting Enough Air
4. Repeated Congestion or Sinus Infections
5. Dizziness, Confusion or Malaise
6. Skin Irritation or Rash
7. Ear and Eye Infections
The severity of the possible symptoms varies greatly and is greatly influenced by age, type of mold, amount of mold, and past medical history. Molds take effect on everybody differently. A mold may be ineffective to you, but to someone else, it could be lethal, and vice versa. There is a huge myth that only Stachybotrys aka "Black Mold" is harmful when in reality, any mold has the potential to wreak havoc on your health.
What to Do If You Experience Any of These Symptoms
First order of business is to call your doctor and schedule an appointment to get checked out. Whether the problem is caused by mold or not, your health could be in danger. Once you have scheduled a doctors appointment, do your best to pinpoint the cause of any of your symptoms. Check for water leaks around your home and check any areas that are susceptible to containing moisture such as your bathroom and laundry room. If a recent construction job was done in your home, be sure to check these areas for anything that looks out of the ordinary. If you are able to pinpoint the problem and it turns out to be mold-related or if you were unable to find the problem, give us a call!
