Florida is a natural breeding ground for mold to grow, in yards, on fabrics, and in the home. The typical symptoms one will have if there is mold present will appear like allergies, causing one to get an itchy nose and throat, watery eyes, postnasal drip, and a constant runny nose. This will soon turn into coughing and wheezing, and if the exposure continues, one may suffer from shortness of breath.
Mold problems should be taken very seriously, since with excessive exposure they can result in lasting damage to the body and mind. The loss of eyesight, hearing, and memory can become permanent. The risk of losing one’s physical balance and coordination can be experienced, along with bleeding lungs, brain damage and autoimmune disease. It can even be the cause of death for the at-risk population, such as infants or the fragile elderly.
A leak that saturates insulation, wood, or drywall, can cause mold spores to grow, or anytime flooding is experienced in a home. Mold can grow on bathroom and kitchen ceilings, in damp basements, under floor coverings, behind the refrigerator or around air conditioning units. Many times it is impossible to see and difficult to detect, which is why it is best to seek a professional if you suspect you have a mold problem.
The professionals can pinpoint where your mold originates from, the types of mold that are present, repair any leaks found, and replace the materials in the areas that are affected. They will disinfect and sanitize, leaving your home a safe place to live again.
