Have you ever noticed a musty, mildewy smell stemming from your basement, garage, bathroom, or laundry room? Mold is most likely to grow in damp places, areas that retain moisture. In perfect conditions, it can grow over the course of a short twenty four hours! Mold will grow both indoors and outdoors, and it uses multiple methods to enter our homes through doors, windows, heating and air conditioning, or vents! Once mold has found us, it begins to fester, grow, and spread.
If left untreated, mold can carry many unhealthy, dangerous consequences. However, there are ways to control mold infestations and ensure the protection of your home, health, and wellness.
Some people are more sensitive to mold than others, and therefore experience an array of health issues. A person affected by mold may present symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, eyes and throat irritation, or nasal stuffiness. Of course, if you have a mold allergy, unfortunately you’ll likely endure a more severe reaction. This is all the more reason to quickly get a handle on any mold issue that may present itself in your environment!
