Health Effects Of Mold And Attributed Health Symptoms
We here at Toledo Basement Repair understand the health risks attributed to mold growth within your home. We work hard for our clients in Maumee, Toledo and surrounding areas to rid them of this hazard. Mold can cause serious health symptoms, especially for people with compromised immune systems, children, and the elderly. Some mold symptoms include asthma, skin rash and sinusitis. Symptoms may start slowly with a headache or wheezing and gradually increase to more pronounced ailments. Mold removal is essential to eliminating health risks that can eventually lead to severe congestion, neurological damage, memory loss, or lung disease.
Mold Identification And Location
Mold may be lurking in your basement; with it the adverse health effects it hosts. Though you may not see the mold, chances are it is well hidden. Locating mold can most often be detected by its musty smell. What causes mold is ample oxygen, humidity, moisture and dust. This type of environment enables mold to grow on basement walls, behind wood panels and wallpaper, shelving, under carpets, and around leaking pipes
Professional Mold Removal
Many people are uncomfortable doing their own home mold removal due to the health risks involved. Safety precautions, materials, and cost coupled with inexperience also deter homeowners from handling basement mold removal on their own. Our certified technicians at Toledo Basement Repair provide thorough mold inspection and removal. Mold testing is usually not required because the CPC does not differentiate mold identification, as all molds contain health risks. The important steps to be taken are mold detection, treatment, and prevention.
