Mold has no preference to whose home it infects, just ask any one of a number of celebrities who’ve had to deal with mold-infested homes.
What Causes Mold?
Mold can be caused by any number of problems a home is subjected to, from a leaking roof that damages ceiling tiles and drywall, or a broken water heater flooding the floor, to broken water pipes that leave walls saturated. A leaking chimney, improper connection of a water line, botched repairs of water pipes or lines, and poor insulation are also areas that promote mold growth. In each situation, moisture is the culprit that becomes a magnet for the mold to feed on and spread.
Mold and Health
Being exposed to mold for any length of time can lead to health issues such as respiratory illness, sinus problems, headaches, fatigue, cough, runny eyes and nose, neurological problems, and lung damage.
Often times, a mold problem is not discovered until the home is inspected, which could be long after someone has been exposed to black mold.
If you smell a musty odor in your home or see evidence of mold on walls, ceilings, or floors, it’s time to have a professional NJ mold removal company inspect your home. They’ll find the source of the problem so that it can be addressed and then take care of the mold remediation process using up-to-date technology and treatments designed for mold.
