Regardless of the age or environment of your home, molds can appear and cause danger. The presence of moisture in walls, ceilings, and floors encourage the growth of molds. Mold infestation is usually found in homes in places where the environment is humid and where the climate is rainy. Molds release spores as they spread through the walls of your home. You can become sick if you are able to inhale mold spores. And it is difficult to know if it is the spores that make you sick since the symptoms look like those of any other sicknesses.
The sicknesses caused by molds look similar to a cold, flu, or allergies. Small amounts of pores can become irritants. Your nose, lungs, throat, and eyes can become irritated. When you are irritated by spores then you can experience sneezing, runny nose, clogged sinuses, itchy or runny eyes, and coughing. These are common symptoms which you can mistake for something else. Headaches, dizziness, or nausea and the other symptoms.
Longer periods of exposure can make you suffer more pronounced symptoms. You get persistent headaches or dizziness. Some people even lose their weight and lose their hair. Because of diarrhea, coughing up blood, vomiting, and fatigue, your body will not be able to absorb vital nutrients. Inhaling mold spores can also lead to skin rashes, memory loss, and sore. These things can be stopped if you hire professional mold removal services since your house has already become a serious health hazard.
If you don’t hire mold removal services, then you will experience very serious effects after a long period of time. These effects might be incurable. It can cause blindness, bleeding lungs, cognitive impairments, brain damage, long-term memory loss, and cancer if exposure is prolonged. Sicknesses caused by molds can also result in death, although these are very rare cases.
The process of mold removal is called remediation. Spores exist everywhere and some of them are harmless and this is why the process is called remediation. Because of this, spores cannot be removed completely. But, remediation refers to the process of reducing the number of spores to a safe level.
The first thing that mold removal services do is to inspect the severity of the infestation. Then they will remove mold physically. When the molds are physically removed from the area, the hard-to-reach areas will be applied with chemical agents such as bleach, ammonia, borax, and vinegar. Porous materials such as clothes, upholstery, and drywall cannot be salvaged anymore. Non-porous materials such as glass, metal, and plastic should be thoroughly cleaned before reusing.
HEPA filtered vacuum is used to clean up spores and dry the air in the room by professional mold removal services. Spores will not return if the environment is kept dry.
