There are thousands of different mold strains, and the one commonality is that no one wants any of them in his or her home or business. Not only are the spots of black, green, white, orange, and other hues unsightly and musty smelling, but also a cause of negative side effects.
Mold produces allergens, so individuals who are sensitive may experience hay fever like allergic reactions and asthma attacks. Other side effects can include headaches, dizziness, nausea, and skin rashes. And that’s just from mold strains considered to be nontoxic.
The toxic variety, such as Stachybotrys chartarum, also known as “black mold,” can be quite dangerous. Homes seriously affected by black mold can force homeowners to move out either temporarily or permanently, with some structures in such ill repair the only cure is to tear them down.
While black mold is the extreme, mold itself is commonplace in most homes. It generates easily with water on a living source, or once-living source like wood, allowing it to to move into your residence and thrive. While not all mold types are cause for concern, they should be addressed promptly to minimize spreading, possible damage, and other negative side effects.
A typical household area for mold to grow in is the bathroom, thanks to it being a room often filled with moisture. While humidity from showers is one source, mold can develop in bathrooms for a variety of reasons, including:
A bleach and water solution is often recommended for removing mold, but while it may look and smell as if it is gone, bleach itself does not kill mold. To effectively rid your home of mold contamination, it’s best to call in mold remediation specialists. Experts in mold remediation will assess the type of mold growing and the level of toxicity it contains. After all, some mold may be black in color, but may not qualify as being the toxic risk of actual “black mold.” Following an assessment, the mold remediation specialist can advise you on the best course of action for removing the mold, as well as how to reduce or eliminate the source of the moisture problem.
