Environmental Solutions Group, LLC: Health Effects of Mold:

Mold can cause a number of health problems young children, the elderly or those with a compromised immune system are most at risk. Sensitivity to mold can develop from long term exposure. Symptoms of mold exposure can include a stuffy or runny nose, eye irritations, dry cough, headaches, asthma or other respiratory problems or even skin rashes.

Indoor Mold:

While mold is beneficial to the environment, it is not beneficial to your home, business and health if it is inside. All indoor mold growth should be avoided, which means using ventilation fans and repairing roof leaks, plumbing leaks and other problems that allow water and moisture to get into your home.

Where Does Mold Grow?

Mold grows on just about any surface as long as it has oxygen and moisture, and an organic food source. When mold reproduces, it creates tiny seeds, called spores. You cannot see the spores with a naked eye. The mold spores constantly float through the air, looking for a damp dark place to settle and grow.

If you have excess moisture in your home, the mold spores floating through the air become attracted to the “perfect environment” and start to grow. Whatever they land on, they digest it. If left alone long enough, mold could even create structural damage to buildings.

Can All Mold Spores Be Eliminated?

It is impossible to eliminate all mold spores, but by controlling the amount of moisture in the home, you can control the amount of mold indoors. Since mold requires water to grow, keeping all water out of the walls, appliances and the basement hinders excessive mold growth.

Conclusion:

In the 1970s, building practices were changed by creating tighter buildings. This lessens ventilation, which allows mold to grow should you have a leak or leave water in appliances for extended periods. Thus, when you find a problem that allows moisture into the home, you should repair the problem as soon as possible to prevent the growth of mold.

Black Mold Removal!

Mold can be challenging and often leads to a great deal of confusion. In particular, a great deal of stigma is attached to black mold and black mold removal. Even experienced professionals sometimes believe that all black mold can be toxic.

The reasons for this are many. First, because of its’ black coloration, it is not readily visible unless it is contrasted against a very lightly colored surface, such as sheet rock. Second, it is one of the more toxic genuses of mold. By this we mean its’ mycotoxins, or defensive poisons, are specifically damaging to the respiratory and nervous system if one is exposed in concentrations, generally less, than other mold genus such as Cladosporium. Third, this genus of mold tends to grow, massively, in hidden locations. Many times its presence is detected, not by visible observation, but by its spores appearing in the results of a ‘bio-aerosol’ sampling.

Black mold removal can take a few hours or can also take several days. Depending on the level of black mold infestation in your area home will also dictate the level of black mold removal that will need to occur. The removal process is very tedious and requires special state of the art black mold removal equipment in order to be successful.

Removing the dangerous mold is a task that requires a certified and reputable contractor. It requires careful handling when coming in contact with the substance. Using every precaution available, full body suit, a respiratory mask, eye protection and gloves must be worn when removing the mold. There are numerous products than can be applied to remove the substance. Your contractor will discuss the proper procedure for your individual needs.

In addition to using funicides and other attacking agents, containment has to be done prior to any work. Containing the area the mold is growing will ensure that the spores that are disturbed by removal will not spread throughout the home. A certified technician will undertake black mold removal per your states standards. Be risk-free, be smart, you and your family’s health relies on it.

Toxic Mold!

Mold Toxicity is the excessive accumulation of mold mycotoxins in the brain and body.
Hidden mold is always present in water damaged buildings. Most of the time, we are unaware that mold trapped behind the shower tile or above the ceiling tile is producing harmful mycotoxins.

Toxic mold exposure claims can be divided into several categories. The first is toxic mold growth in the home as a result of water intrusion into the home due to construction or design defects. The second would be toxic mold growth caused by unforeseen incidents, such as burst water pipes or damage caused by a storm. The excessive moisture can cause the growth of toxic mold.

People with poor immune systems, serious allergies or severe asthma are more susceptible to lung infections or upper-respiratory infections from exposure; however, the highest risk is to infants.
