Hazardous Materials Info

Mold spores form in damp indoor areas. This is usually because of a leak in plumbing or a leaky roof. Mold loves dark areas and will rapidly grow out of control. If you see mold stains, you already have a problem. A disaster cleanup company will be able to remove mold from your home and find the source of the mold. 

Is Mold Dangerous?

Mold is dangerous but is highly unlikely to kill you. However, mold does cause adverse effects. Mold will make you ill and should be removed from your home as soon as possible. Some of the symptoms associated with mold exposure include:

  • Respiratory Problems
  • Coughing
  • Watery Eyes
  • Red or Itchy Eyes
  • Sneezing
  • General Fatigue
  • Rashes
  • Lung Infections

If you have any of the above symptoms for an extended period of time, see your doctor and call a disaster cleanup company. It is likely that you have a mold problem in your home, even if you don’t see mold stains. 

Can I Remove the Mold Myself?

You can try. Mold is dangerous and spreads to different areas of your home through your HVAC System. You could have mold in places you never thought possible. Your crawl spaces, attic, basement, and bathroom are all common areas where mold grows. Stains mean you have a mold problem, it doesn’t mean that is the only area with mold. A certified professional will use tools to remove the mold and safely dispose of it. They will also locate the problem that caused the mold and repair it. This will prevent new mold from growing in your home. 

If you believe you have mold, don’t hesitate to call a disaster cleanup company. They will be able to remove the mold easily and you can get on living your life-Mold free.
