Mold can negatively affect your home and your health. Luckily, professional mold remediation services – like those provided by Atlantic Environmental Solutions – can help restore your home to its pre-mold glory.
But before we get into mold remediation, let’s first learn more about how you can identify a mold problem in your home. To do this, we are going to answer three of the most frequently asked questions regarding mold and your home.
1) Where is Mold Commonly Found?
Mold tends to grow in humid, damp areas. Because of this, basements, bathrooms, attics are the most susceptible rooms in your home. Other commonly affected areas include:
- The walls around your kitchen sink
- Any area surrounding a leak
- Window siding
- The back of wallpaper
- And much more!
And remember, just because you do not see mold does not mean it is not there. Hidden mold growth is very dangerous, silently spreading throughout your home.
What are the Most Common Symptoms of Mold Allergies?
Mold affects everyone differently. But those with mold allergies or individuals with existing respiratory concerns, such as asthma, are likely to be extremely sensitive to it. Warning signs of a mold outbreak include:
- Runny or stuffy nose
- Watery eyes with itching sensation
- Coughing and wheezing
- Chest congestion
- Respiratory troubles
- And much more!
Mold has been linked to several health related disorders, including asthma/breathing problems, allergies, rashes, sinus infections, cold, flu, pneumonia, and skin infections.
