Keep Your Family Safe Against Dangers of Mold

Has your home recently been damaged by water? Whether recent rains have causes flooding in your basement or a water leak resulting in damage to your walls and carpets, the actual damage to your home isn’t what should be worrying you. When wood, drywall, cotton, carpet, and other sources are exposed to moisture they can, given enough time, oxygen, and warmth, result in mold.

Mold is extremely dangerous to humans, and failing to take care of this toxic substance can risk the health of you and your family. The problem is, many types of mold exposure are undetected at first. You might not realize you have a slow water leak behind the sink in the bathroom, or you might not visit the basement enough to know that it is flooded. While you are oblivious to the problem, mold spores could be spreading throughout your home, though, and these spores are so small you can’t even see them.

The Danger of Mold

Continued exposed to mold can be very risky to a person’s health, and can result in a number of symptoms that are often mistaken for other health problems, including:

  • Wheezing
  • Runny nose
  • Headaches
  • Sinus problems
  • Nausea
  • Coughing
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Lupus
  • Infections
  • Sudden infant death syndrome
  • Cancer

When mold is present in a home, it often spreads through the air and ventilations systems. Individuals then ingest the mold spores either through breathing or by eating or drinking contaminated food and beverages. Direct contact with the mold can also result in the above health problems, and can cause dangerous allergic reactions and serious health problems.

When mold is not taken care of right away, it can quickly become a big problem. However, there is one step you can take to reduce your health risk and make your home safe once again.
