After discovering mold, your first impulse might be to grab some spray cleaner and get to work cleaning it up. However, agitating a mold infestation can release spores into the air – making you sicker even as you clean. See a nurse or doctor instead, and call a Manhattan mold removal company to do the dirty work.
CDC Recommendation for Mold Exposure
The Centers for Disease Control urge people with mold symptoms to first speak to their primary care physician or another general healthcare provider.
If you need a referral, your clinic can then recommend a specialist. Depending on your symptoms and pre-existing conditions, you might need to see an allergist, a lung specialist, or an occupational doctor for workplace mold issues.
Serious Mold Symptoms to Watch For
The most common health effects of mold include respiratory problems like coughing, wheezing, and runny nose, as well as related issues such as headaches and skin rashes.
Mold can devastate people at risk much worse, however. Children, seniors, people with asthma or COPD, and those with compromised immune systems are more likely to develop infectious diseases from mold.
Pulmonary hemorrhages can cause bloody coughs and severe pain. Some people report dizziness, memory loss, and other cognitive symptoms of mold illness.
Cleaning and Preventing Mold Problems
While medicine can treat the symptoms, you’ll need a Manhattan mold removal company to get rid of the cause. A two-step mold treatment includes disinfecting and deodorizing with an anti-microbial, followed by a silver polymer coating that prevents mold growth on surfaces.
If you are experiencing mold sickness, see your healthcare provider and contact Stern Mold for Manhattan mold removal immediately.
