Mold in homes causes numerous problems. House mold problemsgo beyond an unpleasant smell or unsightly stains on carpets, walls or ceilings. No one wants those things in their home. Mold also contributes to a number of health problems, some quite serious.
Health issues due to mold problems include:
- Respiratory problems
- Asthma attacks
- Chronic sinus infections
- Sore throats
- Runny noses
- Watery eyes
Mold can be absorbed by clothing in a few ways. Either the fabric becomes infected with mold, or it comes in contact with other moldy clothes.
Cleaning up mold in homes poses many problems. If you don’t get it all, any health problems you’re experiencing will continue or even get worse. Cleaning mold from your shower tiles may be fairly easy, but cleaning mold from porous surfaces like wooden wall studs, insulation, carpeting and drywall is much more difficult. Some surfaces cannot be cleaned and must be removed and replaced instead.
Any home or business can quickly become infested with mold with the introduction of a water source, like a roof or plumbing leak. Mold can spread throughout a property in as little as 48-72 hours, and can produce allergens and irritants that have the potential to cause other health effects.
