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
