When You Should Consider A Mold Inspection!

When you should consider a mold inspection! A common issue with mold in your is most of the time you do not know where it is. Mold likes to hide in dark areas of the home. Most people notice an earthy mildew smell within their home and think nothing of it while others begin to feel sick and just don’t know why. Long exposure to mold can lead to negative health conditions that can worsen overtime. Some conditions include:

  • Causation of new asthma
  • Asthma attacks in those who already have asthma
  • Allergic rhinitis (sneezing, congested nose, or runny nose)
  • Upper respiratory symptoms, such as stuffy or congested nose or sinuses, sore throat, or irritated nose or throat
  • Lower respiratory symptoms, such as wheezing, difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, or cough
  • Respiratory infections such as acute bronchitis
  • Eye irritation (burning, watery, or reddened eyes)
  • Eczema and skin rashes or irritation

If you feel that you may have mold in your home or that the indoor air quality of your home has been compromised it might be time to consider a comprehensive mold inspection by a certified mold inspector. Having a comprehensive mold inspection will help expose the areas of contamination in your home. You can also utilize a variety of mold sampling techniques that will help identify the type of mold, level of contamination and the possible health related risks associated with the mold detected.
