It’s a well-known fact that mold is toxic for one’s health. Perhaps you see this mold on the walls of your basement and think to yourself I really need to sort this out!, yet forget to call a mold specialist for a mold inspection. Or, maybe you have read a few articles on the impacts of mold on your health, meanwhile unsure of the kind of mold that is present in your house. Whichever is the case, one thing is clear: mold doesn’t belong in your house. Here are three reasons why you need to remove mold in your house professionally.
- Certain types of mold can lead to mycotoxicosis, or mold poisoning
Although this is only the case with certain types of mold, having any kind of mold in your house can lead to poisoning. This is a situation in which the inhabitants of a house begin to experience symptoms such as aches and pains, changes in their mood, headaches, memory loss, and even nosebleeds. If you are experiencing any of these, or if you are prone to allergies, the best option is to work with a mold remediation service, such as Trax Mold Removal, as we are experts in that field.
- Mold can worsen allergies
Aside from mold poisoning, those who struggle with severe allergies in the spring and summer know just how much worse mold can cause the symptoms. Indeed, mold exposure has been linked to a runny nose, water and red eyes, a dry cough, skin rashes, a sore throat, sinusitis, and wheezing. Moreover, some studies have shown that infants as well as young children who are exposed to mold when younger have an increased risk of facing asthma and other respiratory issues as they age. Similarly, living in a damp area, which is required for the formation of mold, is also associated with a higher risk of asthma. As summer is just around the corner in Toronto, you’ll want to take care of mold before allergy season is in full swing!
- Once it’s there, it never stops spreading
Finally, mold can end up spreading out all over your house unless it is taken care of promptly. Mold spores can travel through your HVAC system and settle in multiple areas if you don’t address it promptly. Mold is something that is difficult to get rid of once it is there because it spreads very quickly, and without warning. Once the first few spots of mold are there, your next step should be to focus on getting rid of the mold at all costs. A professional mold cleanup is just what you need to make sure you are getting rid of all the mold spots that are keeping you from having a healthy home.
In fact, did you know that certain groups of individuals are more likely than others to be sensitive to mold? Indeed, children, babies, the elderly, as well as those who have a compromised immune system should pay close attention to mold in their house as it can hinder one’s immune system further.
