Mold May Be Silently Destroying Your Health

Mar 1, 2008
It seems like more and more of our race is developing symptoms related to allergies. If you are one of the vast population that will suffer from allergies, then you know how aggravating and often times painful they might be. People spend a tremendous quantity of money every year for over the counter and prescription fixes that are recommended to help get rid of their sickness. A big amount of trips to the doctor are allergy caused.

There are many causes besides someone's genes that add to the symptoms of allergies. Pets, fibers, pollution, foods, bee stings and mold are just several of the things that can cause real havoc in some of our lives.

The reality of exposure to mold spores has recently become a much talked about topic. While many people may have a terrible reaction to mold, even those who are not affected by most allergies can be made sick by coming into contact with mold. It can produce some really serious respiratory problems in almost anyone who is subjected to it long enough, especially anyone who could already have a compromised immune system.

The consequences of mold exposure may result in runny nose, hay fever, skin rashes, breathing problems, or sinusitis. These problems can range from very mild to very severe which depends on the person. Some of the most severe reactions to mold contamination can result in hospitalization or in occasional situations, even death.

Their residence might be one of the leading areas where people might be exposed to toxic mold. It can be caused by water damaged living spaces that have not been sanitized as good as they could have been. Other less traumatic things that some might not give a large amount of thought to, are places like their moist basements, a prolonged water leak anywhere in the living space where mold has begun to grow and has been left undiscovered, or even the result of not enough ventilation in a kitchen or bathroom.

If you uncover this nasty substance growing any place in your dwelling place, it needs to be cleaned up as fast as you can. Clean and scrub the spot thoroughly with a disinfectant such as a mold killing cleaner. Fix any water leaking plumbing and scrub that place with disinfectant. Try to verify and fix the area of moisture in a basement or attic.

Stopping mold in a home before it begins to grow is one of the easiest ways to stop your loved ones from being exposed to mold related allergies that they could develop.
