Many people are unfamiliar with the process of mold remediation and mold removal until they are forced to learn about it. Mold can be an unseemly and unfortunate part of home ownership. Not only can mold cause detriment to your home and be unfortunate to look at, but it can also cause serious detriment to your health. While many are unaware of the ways in which mold can negatively affect your health and the health of your family, there are actually many ways that it can cause a negative effect.
Allergies and Allergic Reactions Due To Mold
Mold is a combination of mold spores from millions of different micro-organisms. Since mold grows through the creation of spores, they are naturally airborne and can be easily inhaled. If you are someone who struggles with allergies or is immunocompromised, then mold in the household can be especially tiresome and difficult. Mold spores can irritate allergies and increase the likelihood and severity of allergic reactions.
Mold, in addition to being unsightly and decreasing home value, can also be toxic and dangerous. Black mold, for example, can pose very serious health risks that are extremely dangerous especially for immunocompromised individuals. Black mold and other toxic molds can cause sickness and even death. If you think that your home has black mold or dangerous mold in your home, call a specialist immediately for the health and safety of your family.
Neurological Effects of Mold In The Home
There is research that suggests that mold can cause negative cognitive effects as well. Mold can affect sleep patterns, memory problems, confusion, mood changes, and more. While the exact reasons for this are still being studied by scientists, there are a large amount of studies by scientists that support this claim. Many neurological effects of mold are actually complained about by sufferers of mold, further supporting these claims.
Mold can negatively affect respiratory health and cause wheezing, coughing, congestion, throat irritation, and more. Longterm exposure to mold can exacerbate these conditions and cause them to grow continually worse. Mold remediation can remove the root cause of these symptoms, allowing you to have healthier respiratory health for yourself and your family.
