Mold’s Spooky Impact on Health

There are various ways that mold can impact the health of the people living or working inside a property impacted by it. These include:

• Allergic reactions: Just like pollen or dust, mold can be a significant allergen for many individuals. Symptoms can range from sneezing, skin rashes, and watery eyes to more severe reactions like difficulty breathing, especially for those with asthma.

• Mycotoxin troubles: Certain molds produce mycotoxins, which can lead to health problems if inhaled or ingested. Prolonged exposure can be particularly harmful and lead to neurological issues and, in severe cases, even death.

• Infections: Those with weakened immune systems can be at risk of fungal infections due to certain mold types. These infections can affect the lungs and other parts of the body.

The Haunting Damage to Property

But mold isn’t just a menace to health. It can be a homeowner’s worst nightmare when it comes to property damage, with issues such as:

• Structural decay: Mold feeds on organic materials, which include many construction materials like wood and drywall. Over time, unchecked mold growth can lead to structural damage, making parts of the home unsafe.

• Aesthetic damage: Mold and its unsightly stains can ruin walls, ceilings, and furnishings. Its musty odor can also permeate a room, making living spaces unpleasant.

• Reduced property value: If mold issues become known during property sales, it can substantially reduce a home’s value or even make it difficult to sell.
