If you discover mold in your home or business, you may think you’re capable of cleaning it up yourself. Without professional NJ and NYC mold remediation, you could be putting yourself and your family at risk for some serious health problems.
Mold: Not Just a Cosmetic Issue
Microscopic mold spores are always present in the air, both indoors and out. Most people are not affected unless they suffer from allergies. Difficulties start to arise when mold colonizes on an interior surface.
Extended exposure to a mold infestation can cause a wide range of upper respiratory symptoms, even in people who are not generally susceptible to allergies. These symptoms include sneezing, irritated eyes, coughing and wheezing.
Danger is even greater for people with pre-existing lung conditions or compromised immune systems. They can be vulnerable to aspergillosis, a fungus ball that develops in the lungs or sinuses, or experience bleeding from the lungs or nose.
The risks are not limited to physical ailments. Studies have linked mold exposure to sleep disorders, depression and cognitive difficulties such as memory loss.
When Cleaning Isn’t Enough
Simply cleaning a mold-infested surface doesn’t address the underlying cause, which is usually excessive moisture. If the problem isn’t resolved, you could find yourself caught in a repeating cycle of mold exposure.
