Effects of Mold On Your Health
Mold may have several negative health effects on you and your family such as nasal stuffiness, throat irritation, coughing or wheezing, eye irritation or in some cases even skin irritation. People whose immune systems have been compromised or people with chronic lung illnesses may get serious infections in their lungs from being exposed to mold. There are several ways mold spores can enter your home, such as open door ways, windows, vents, and heating and air conditioning systems. It can also attach itself to clothing, bags, and even your pets!
Mold grows in places that are exposed to moisture like around leaks in the roof, windows and vents. It can also grow on any organic materials such as paper products, cardboard and ceiling tiles. If you can see or smell the mold, you may be putting your health at risk! Don’t waste time, give SERVPRO of The Southtowns a call to remove mold and protect you and your family’s health.
