Horror stories abound in the media today about mold sickness and other negative ways that people react to mold in their homes and workplaces. However, as is often the case with mass media, these reports tend to be exaggerated, bordering on scare tactics. Rather than lose sleep over mold nightmares, get the straight facts from the mold specialists at Advanced Mold Diagnostics. Because we deal with mold inspection and remediation of all types and degrees, we can help you determine whether your mold is something to worry about and, if so, how best to get rid of it.
Mold is part of the natural environment and is present everywhere, both inside where we live and out. Mycologists have identified over 100,000 and counting different species of mold. Most of these types of mold post no major danger to your family and can often be safely remediated with household products. However, a few molds, and especially when present in high volume, can cause negative symptoms or irritate allergies, especially in at-risk individuals. Those “at-risk” for some form of mold sickness include infants, the elderly and those with mold allergies or asthma. Typically, their reaction may include respiratory issues or skin irritation of varying degrees. If someone in your household fits into this category, it is important that you call for an inspection if you suspect mold growth in your home.
Even if no one in your home is at a higher risk for mold sickness, it is still important to get a professional opinion before getting to work cleaning up any large area of mold growth. A mold assessment can help you determine the type of mold you are dealing with, as well as the best way to resolve it for good. If the problem is too widespread or cannot be remediated using household cleaners, you may require professional remediation.
