Mold is a serious problem that can hurt you and your family, leading to serious health consequences up to and including death. Many people might see a spot of mold in their home, and try to clean it up themselves, with water, bleach or other rumored mold cleaning methods which actually can make mold worse, but just because it’s gone from the surface doesn’t mean it is gone from your home.
Mold is a complex organism that is actually the name for multiple levels of fungus. What you see is just the surface of the mold, but different layers – also known as the root of the mold, can still be lurking under the surface of your floors and walls – and even in your ceiling – especially in our humid and warm climate of Fort Myers, FL. If you see mold, it’s best to leave any form of mold remediation up to the professionals because when regular people try to clean up mold they typically just end up spreading around the spores and causing more mold growth.
This can lead to severe health problems, especially in those who already have weakened immune systems or other health problems. While the symptoms of mold exposure are debated by governmental agencies, even the CDC agrees that mold exposure can cause symptoms including fevers and shortness of breath. They also state that those exposed to mold can develop mold infections in their lung leading to obstructed breathing, asthma and pneumonia. Those are just the symptoms from non-toxic mold exposure.
Molds that are considered toxic have much higher consequences for exposure. These molds cause neurological problems, can even cause cancer, and clearly severely affect a person’s life. In severe cases, exposure to toxic mold can cause death directly, but more often, death is caused indirectly through the symptoms created by exposure to toxic mold.
So don’t leave mold lying around. It is a serious issue that needs to be taken care of in a timely manner by the professionals here at iMold.
