, What You Need To Know About Toxic Mold

Toxic mold is every homeowners’ worst nightmare. There have been plenty of horror stories about homeowners who realize too late that they have a major mold problem in their homes. Mold is common all over the country, and anyone who has too much humidity in their homes may find that they have at least some mold growing in their kitchen, basement, or bathroom–all places with a lot of humidity that can be closed off from the rest of the home for some extended period of time. The good news is that having some mold doesn’t have to be the end of the world. Mold can be removed relatively easily if you know what you are doing, and relatively inexpensively if you call professional help.

Mold Can Easily Grow Where Humidity Is High

In order to understand the problem with toxic mold, you need to know how it grows. When the humidity in the air is high, mold can thrive. A great way to reduce humidity in your home is with a dehumidifier. Increasing ventilation throughout your home can also help. Think about how you can use air conditioners, vents, and fans to increase circulation and make it harder for mold to grow. 

Toxic Mold Can Cause Adverse Symptoms

Toxic mold is, well, toxic. It can cause a wide range of adverse symptoms if you are living with it. Toxic mold can cause issues such as allergic reactions, headaches, coughing, or eye irritation. It can also lead to respiratory problems. Toxic mold is not fatal. But if left unchecked, these health issues can get worse over time. Make sure that you take the time to address toxic mold in your home if you are experiencing any of these symptoms. 

If You Have A Serious Mold Problem–Call A Professional

If you have a small mold problem, you might be able to clean it up yourself. First, you want to identify where the mold is coming from. Then you can eliminate the water source and use a dehumidifier. You can clean the mold yourself with something as simple as detergent and water, as long as the surface remains dry afterwards. If you have a major mold problem though, or if you can’t tell where the mold is originating, then you want to make sure that you call a professional. Mold grows relatively easily, so you can spend a lot of your own time if you are trying to clean it up by yourself.
