Mold health effects on people with pre-existing conditions
As mold grows, allergens, irritants, and mycotoxins are released into the air. If it’s growing in a poorly ventilated area, the dissemination creates a dangerous, highly contagious environment that may affect people struggling with respiratory health conditions like asthma, allergies, lung diseases/failure, etc.
Breathing in and interacting with these mycotoxins can cause other health issues like skin rashes, red eyes, stuffy nose, coughing, and other flu-like symptoms. Sometimes, mold health effects are not immediate; people may be living in a contaminated environment and the symptoms of mold exposure are not visible until areas are severely compromised.
Mold has a very distinctive smell: it’s a rather earthy smell, also similar to the smell of a wet pair of socks. If you notice any of these symptoms, or if you’re someone struggling with some of the medical conditions we mentioned above, leave it to Bio-One of Orange specialists to take care of the mold cleanup and remediation. Our specialists are trained to properly contain areas and items that may be contaminated by mold, and we will dispose of them in a safe, timely manner.
Mold effects on your house/property - The importance of acting quickly
The biggest issue with mold is that most of the time damage is irreversible. When wallpaper, carpeting, upholstery, and household furniture become contaminated with mold, the proper solution is to remove and replace them. In some cases, of course, mold can be cleaned from some items without discarding them, but it is up to professionals to determine the level of damage.
Mold can affect building structures by consuming foundations, insolation systems, HVAC systems, walls, floor, and carpeting. It’s important to quickly address the mold issue, but it’s more important to promptly fix the water or humidity problems that are causing mold to grow. Bio-One of Orange’s certified technicians work with third-party contractors to restore areas after mold has been removed from the property.
