Mold Removal Unit

Although mold is part of our natural environment, indoor mold can make you really sick! Mold in your home releases tiny spores to reproduce, which contaminate the air we breathe. What is even worse is that mold-related illnesses are often misdiagnosed because those suffering are not even aware that they have a mold problem.

Toxic mold commonly occurs in damp, humid areas of the house including behind walls and appliances. Toxic mold types such as Stachybotrys, cladosporium, aspergillus, memnoniella, acremonium, and black mold are the most dangerous. They cause allergies and sicknesses that can be life-threatening.

Mold Testing
Because mold infestation may be difficult to detect, mold testing is the most effective way to properly determine the quality of your indoor air.

Mold testing is a safety measure that everyone should take to ensure that indoor air is safe to breathe. Any building in which people spend a significant amount of time such as homes, offices, schools and churches should be tested for mold problems to avoid mold-related illnesses.

While toxic mold exposure can affect anyone, there are those who are at a higher risk for developing serious illnesses.

  • Infants
  • Pregnant women
  • Elderly
  • Asthma sufferers
  • Those who suffer from respiratory illness

Flu-like complaints including headaches, irritation of the eyes and a sore throat are early mold exposure symptoms. As the mold infestation increases the symptoms significantly get worse. Memory loss and bleeding in the lungs can be the result of long-term toxic mold exposure.

Household Mold
Household mold can be health threatening. Sick Home Syndrome (SHS) more commonly known as Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) are illnesses that have been linked to household mold.

More and more people are becoming conscious of the health concerns associated with the quality of the air we breathe. The effects of toxic mold can be significantly reduced when you learn how mold grows and is identified and prevented from spreading.
