Is Bathroom Mold Dangerous? Does It Need Aggressive Treatment?
When Cleaning Isn’t Enough
Small mold colonies can often be wiped away with a sponge and disinfectant. Unfortunately, that does little to address the problem that created mold in the first place. If you don’t take steps to correct the condition, whether it’s broken pipes or poor ventilation, mold can become a chronic issue.
Mold May Be Smelled, not Seen
Perhaps there’s no visible evidence of mold, but the bathroom has a persistent musty smell. Chances are mold has developed inside walls, under cabinets or some other place not readily apparent. Before you start ripping out fixtures, let our NYC mold removal technicians conduct a thorough inspection.
Mold as a Health Hazard
Black mold receives the lion’s share of the publicity, but all mold species can cause health problems ranging from allergic reactions to headaches and dizziness. People with asthma and other pre-existing respiratory conditions are particularly vulnerable.
The danger comes from inhaling airborne mold spores, which can be dispersed in the cleaning process. Any type of bathroom mold should be considered an immediate threat to the health of your family, employees or customers.
