Posted in Blog | Indoor Air Quality | Mold Inspection on January 15th, 2019 by Ian Stevens

Mold testing can be life-saving! A simple black mold test can keep negative symptoms away. Exposure to mold leads to a variety of health issues and concerns.

You wouldn’t want to be living in a damp and moldy area, much less our children. The best way to know whether your home contains mold is testing. We’re going to walk you through ensuring your home air quality is top-notch!

Deciding If Mold Testing Is Right for You

To know if a mold inspection is right for you, you’ll need to ask yourself a few questions. If you’ve seen obvious and visible mold growth, then yes, you’ll want to bring in an expert. They’ll suggest the best ways to remove the mold in a safe way.

If you walk into your house and it smells like mold, but you can’t see any obvious dark spots, call in an expert. You may have mold growth that you can’t see. This is especially dangerous because it’s invisible to you.

Despite its invisibility, mold is still harmful. That’s because mold is a fungus that’s toxic for human beings. The little spores travel up your nose and into your lungs.

They latch on and don’t let go, causing many breathing issues that can be life-altering.

Impacts of Black Mold Air on the Body

We know that mold is destructive for the human body, but let’s delve deeper. Exposure to black mold can cause life-changing symptoms, impacting your quality of life. Some of these negative symptoms include:

  • Coughing or throat irritation
  • Eye issues [dry eyes, irritation]
  • Congestion

This does not include symptoms of prolonged exposure. That means these symptoms could worsen and progress into illness or disease. You and your family are precious and priceless.

Making the investment in clean air is worth it! You’ll be able to breathe easy knowing you’re taking the right steps toward a better future in 2019.

How to Stop Black Mold From Taking Over 

Now that we understand that black mold is damaging, there are ways you can stop it. Since mold is a fungus, we know that it’s going to love humid and warm temperatures. The perfect growing place is the bathroom.

When you close the door for a hot steamy shower, the humidity builds up and can lead to mold. If your bathroom is in the basement, consider installing an air vent. The right ventilation will balance humidity levels and stop mold growth.

If you notice a few black dots, you may try to scrub them with bleach and a brush. Remember that mold is a tough fungus, so you may need to recruit the experts.
