How does mold affect your house and health?

How does mold affect your house and health? - Bio-One of Orange.

When it comes to mold removal services, Bio-One of Orange’s certified technicians can help you. If the root cause of mold growth is not addressed, it will continue growing and causing damage to the property and your health. 

Mold plays a fundamental part in the natural environment, as it’s responsible for decomposing organic matter (dead leaves, trees, food). Mold spores are present in the air, and we can’t control them from entering houses and indoor environments. They don’t pose a problem indoors as long as they don’t interact with humidity and water. 

A Problem for Property Owners

Mold can grow in humid, damp areas with high levels of moisture. If there’s water damage, these areas become suitable places for mold growth and dissemination. As mold grows, it produces allergens and irritant spores that may affect those with respiratory problems and conditions. Though mold spores don’t affect everyone equally, children and people suffering from asthma or lung diseases are at a higher risk of exposure. 

Mold can become a serious problem for property owners, not only because of the health effects but also the irreversible damage it causes to houses and properties. Mold can grow on almost any surface and usually feeds from the surface where it’s growing. From ceiling tiles, drywall, paperboard, insulation, fabric, household furniture, and paper… all that mold needs to grow is a damp environment and water. 

Mold health effects on people with pre-existing conditions

As mold grows, allergens, irritants, and mycotoxins are releasx|ed 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.

Mold has a distinctive smell: it’s a rather earthy smell, similar to the smell of a wet pair of socks. If you notice any of these symptoms, or if you’re struggling with some of the medical conditions mentioned above, leave it to Bio-One of Orange's mold removal services to take care of everything.

Mold effects on your house/property - The importance of acting quickly 

The biggest issue with mold is that most of the time, the damage is irreversible. When wallpaper, carpeting, upholstery, and household furniture become contaminated with mold, the proper solution is to remove and replace them. Professionals can determine which objects should be saved and restored during the remediation process.

Mold can affect building structures by consuming foundations, insolation systems, HVAC systems, walls, floors, and carpeting. It’s important to address the mold issue quickly, but it’s more important to promptly fix the water or humidity problems that are causing mold to grow. Our mold removal services include working with third-party contractors to restore areas after mold has been removed from the property.
