Your home should be a safe haven from all the dangers in the world. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. Mold grows throughout the United States naturally. However, it becomes a problem when it grows in homes. Mold in homes is extremely dangerous. Below, Restoration 1 Conroe will discuss three categories of mold and the dangers they pose to your home and health.
Toxigenic mold is the most hazardous of the three categories. Toxigenic mold is dangerous to both animals and humans and can cause damaging health effects. If you have this type of mold on your property, it is vital that you contact a mold removal company as soon as possible.
Pathogenic mold is also dangerous as it causes infections if people are exposed. This type of mold can also cause life-threatening infections in people who are immunocompromised.
Allergenic mold is the least dangerous of the three, but it can also cause significant issues, especially for those with asthma or bronchitis. This type of mold causes allergy symptoms in those exposed.
If mold is in your home, you will likely notice it because of mold stains on the ceiling or walls, a musty smell, or ongoing symptoms or illness. If you have any of the above, contact a company like Restoration 1 Conroe. They will be able to remove the mold from your property safely. Mold removal is an in-depth process, as all materials damaged by the mold must be removed. All mold spores must also be removed or killed. Once removed, the area must be disinfected with a special spray that kills any remaining mold spores. If any mold is left behind, mold will continue to grow on the property.
