Mold and moisture in your home or office may be responsible for your health problems. Modern building materials like wood, drywall, wallpaper, and fabric are appealing food sources for mold while building technologies such as synthetic stucco can leak and trap moisture inside. Home appliances including clothes dryers and dishwashers also generate water vapor, again creating the type of environment where mold can thrive.
Scientists and doctors do agree on one thing: about one in three people can have allergic reactions to mold. For asthma sufferers who are very young, like Caitlin, or elderly, mold can trigger much more serious problems.
Many research documents are available about health problems related to indoor mold and moisture.
If you believe that you or a family member or friend may have mold-related health problems, be on the safe side and call us. It’s not worth risking your health.
Nasal and sinus congestion, runny nose.
Respiratory problems, such as wheezing and difficulty breathing, chest tightness.
Toxic mold exposure has also been linked to more serious, long-term effects like memory loss, insomnia, anxiety, depression, trouble concentrating, and confusion.
Eye irritation, or, in some cases, skin irritation. In some people, exposure to certain molds can cause a severe asthma attack.
One of the most important things you can do to prepare for your little one is to create a healthy, safe environment for your child (and yourself) to come home to. Want a scary statistic? Indoor air is up to five times more contaminated than outdoor air! Babies are particularly susceptible to indoor air pollution because their immune and respiratory systems are underdeveloped. Constant exposure to contaminants can lead to health issues such as irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat, headaches, dizziness, fatigue, and asthma. As a parent, you’ll do anything to keep your baby safe. Fortunately, there are several ways you can protect your children from indoor pollutants by implementing a few simple steps towards healthier indoor air.
Manage The Indoor Relative Humidity.
Florida humidity is no fun. Not only does it make the air heavier, but it also leads to the growth of unwanted fungi, yeast, and bacteria.
Why is MOLD so dangerous to babies?
Well, when a baby breathes in mycotoxins (a toxic substance produced by a fungus), the blood vessels in the baby’s lungs are weakened, pulmonary hemorrhaging is possible, and even a possibility of bleeding inside the baby’s lungs.
Mold exposure can be just as dangerous to our pets as it can be to us, sometimes even more so. While there are only a few genuinely toxic mold species, even the run-of-the-mill types detected during mold testing can seriously ill our furry companions.
While we are likely familiar with the effects and potential health implications of mold exposure to humans, we don't often talk about how it affects the pets in our lives. Indoor-only pets spend their whole lives in the same environment, compounding and magnifying issues caused by mold growth.
Your pet can be exposed to mold in several ways. Like humans, pets can breathe in mold spores, which will affect the respiratory system. Mold can also affect pets through their coat or skin, which may trap spores and make it difficult for your pet to get rid of them. Animals may also accidentally ingest mold spores, which can cause difficulties for their gastrointestinal tract.
Some of the common signs and symptoms of mold exposure in pets include:
Many people have allergies and are particularly sensitive to mold. Medical professionals can perform tests to determine if someone is reactive to certain types of mold. Mold can produce several symptoms for individuals, particularly the young, the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems. Mold testing in the indoor environment will assist in determining if there is a health risk associated with the space one occupies. Residential, commercial, and industrial buildings can harbor mold contamination that can create “Sick Building Syndrome.” Hire Home Enviro Mold Testing to investigate your health concerns about the building you or someone you care about occupies.
