As a Certified Mold Remediator, Air Care Wizard is equipped to handle mold removal in your home or business. The air quality inside of your building is important. When mold is present, health issues and allergies related to the mycotoxins often arise.
The Dangers of Mold in Your Home or Business
Mold releases millions of microscopic spores into the air, which can trigger serious health and allergy problems. Mold may cause allergic reactions, including congestion, burning eyes or coughing; respiratory problems, such as asthma or infection; headaches, rashes, or memory impairment. Children and elderly are especially susceptible.
The CDC reports that exposure to a moldy environment can cause a variety of health conditions. Some of the conditions that can be caused by mold include:
- Skin, eye, and throat irritation
- Aches & pains
- Coughing and wheezing
- Nasal stuffiness
In 2004, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) did studies that showed that otherwise healthy people experienced these different symptoms in minor ways due to indoor exposure to mold. There were a smaller number of healthy individuals, both children and adults, that had more severe reactions to the Mold.
Individuals allergic to Mold can have even more severe reactions such as lung infections.
Mold eats the matter on which it lives, meaning it destroys the structural integrity of walls, wooden beams, insulation and other building materials. There is nothing worse than suspecting that a stealthy, silent enemy is lurking in your property. If your building smells moldy, if you have present or past water damage, or if you see evidence of Mold, you should have your house inspected. Let us help you and your family. If mold problems are found in your property, we can kill and remove the mold in a process called Mold Remediation.
