WHY IT’S IMPORTANT TO PREVENT MOULD GROWTH
Mould loves small, poor ventilated and damp areas; laundry rooms and bathrooms are ideal accommodations for it. It’s an easy to ignore issue, but the reality is that mould growth can cause health problems to your family and must be solved as soon as possible when detected.
Here are the reasons why it’s important to prevent mould growth in your home:
MANY VARIETIES OF COMMON MOULD
The three most commonly found varieties of mould found in homes include:
Aspergillus – Is the most common, and very frequently provokes allergic reactions.
Cladosporium – Is the least dangerous of the three varieties but may still cause physical symptoms.
Black mould – Is the most dangerous. When people come into contact with black mould spores they may experience significant health problems, from severe allergic reactions to disease and internal bleeding.
IT CAN CAUSE HEALTH PROBLEMS
The most common symptoms of mould exposure include congestion, respiratory problems, coughing, throat irritation, and sneezing.
Many studies show that infants exposed to mould growth may develop lifelong respiratory symptoms (asthma).
People with pre-existing respiratory conditions such as asthma are especially at risk of mould-related complications.
DANGEROUS TO PETS
Pets can suffer from mould poisoning after just minor exposure to mould spore mycotoxins. Symptoms of mould poisoning include respiratory distress, coughing, wheezing, lethargy, vomiting, and bleeding from mucous membranes. If left untreated, mould poisoning symptoms can get worse and lead to more severe problems. Luckily, veterinarians can easily treat mould poisoning once you’re aware of the signs.
The biggest causes of mould growth are hidden leaks and improper ventilation. The experts at AmbroWilks are more than capable of helping you fix both of these problems.
