If your home is suffering from water damage, mold can begin to grow quickly. Along with manifesting serious health risks, mold feeds on natural materials that can compromise a building’s interior structure.
Mold isn’t easily eliminated or controlled. Treating it with household disinfectants and cleaners may mask the problem, but mold is comprised of thousands of microscopic spores, which can travel through the air, infiltrating unseen areas, and continuing to reproduce. If you try to paint over the mold, it’s only a temporary solution. The mold will continue to multiply under the newly painted surface, and within a relatively short time the paint will peel as the mold continues to manifest and grow.
Health Risks resulting from Mold
There are many types of mold. Black mold is toxic. Mold can create allergic reactions and asthma symptoms, upper respiratory problems, skin rashes, and flu-like symptoms. Infants, children, pregnant women, and elderly people with a compromised immune system may be affected more severely by mold.
