The Harm that Mold Can Cause

Many of our customers have some common concerns about mold symptoms and the possible health risk involved with mold, especially what is known as black mold. Most experts agree there are approximately 100,000 different kinds of mold. The good news is not all molds and mildews are toxic molds, but all molds are allergens and have the potential to cause adverse health effects. Although certain mold species are toxigenic (poisonous through inhalation), pathogenic (agents of disease) or carcinogenic (cancer causing), all molds can trigger allergic reactions.

There is a common misconception among many people that mold and common health concerns are not related. In reality, mold is responsible for many health issues that are lingering in your life. Most people are familiar with the term black mold and know this particular type of mold is very dangerous.

Mold symptoms can result in: headaches, vertigo, asthma, respiratory problems, throat and lung irritation, infections, skin irritations and rashes, sore burning eyes, fatigue, nausea, flu-like symptoms, anxiety, depression, memory lapses, sinus issues and allergies.

Mold produces toxins called mycotoxins. We now know mycotoxins are extremely hazardous to your health, especially when airborne. This is why you should never wipe off mold if you can see it. Inhalation of toxic molds can result in liver or central nervous system damage and cancer. In some cases, mold can grow in the lungs.
Many people do not realize that in order to become an environmental physician, it requires an additional two years of medical school. Most physicians are trained to treat the effect not the cause. This is why many general practitioners struggle to cure mold related illnesses. Allergic reactions to mold are common but not everyone is affected the same. People diagnosed with allergies and asthma may be very sensitive to mold. Mold can actually cause asthma attacks.

Infants, children, the elderly, pregnant women, patients with existing respiratory conditions and immune deficient individuals are especially susceptible. Unfortunately, mold ailments can easily be misdiagnosed. In some cases, this can result in severe illness and even death.

If you suspect you have mold, call a certified mold professional, 123 Mold Testing for your inspection and testing needs. In many cases people are able to take their results to their physician so they can be treated for their mold related illness.

Mold Inspection

Mold inspections have discovered that mold requires three elements to grow: oxygen, a food source (wood, clothing, drywall, etc.) and dampness. When water damage takes place, mold can start to grow in as little as 24 hours. It is important to thoroughly dry out all wet areas as soon as possible. With that being said, you have only temporarily fixed the problem, so you will need to seal up the location where the water is getting into.

If you have any of the following, YOU NEED MOLD INSPECTION:

  • Anything from a cracked or otherwise leaking pipe to a refrigeration problem
  • A roof that leaks
  • If an exhaust fan is not used in the bathroom
  • Around the crawl space, if the vapor barrier is not correctly installed
  • Near windows where dampness occurs
  • In your kitchen, if an exhaust fan is not used while cooking
  • Untreated flood problems
  • Pipe Moisture (possible in the ceiling) near the pipes
  • Too little ventilation within your basement coupled with little ventilation

Black mold is a big issue that requires a comprehensive mold inspection in order to find. Not everyone will respond the same way upon contact with it, but allergic reactions are a conventional sign.
If your house contains small children, elderly, infants or anyone with a previous history of respiratory problems such as asthma then you should be aware that these individuals will have a lower tolerance for exposure to black mold. Even if the mold in your house is not black mold, they all pose a great risk to your health. This includes mildew as well which is quite conventional and is classified as an allergen.
