Scrubbing away visible Mold won’t get rid of it all, that’s only the start of the problem, and you risk spreading the Mold to other areas of your home. Mold can make its way into our homes through the wind, tracked in through pets and clothing. It can thrive in areas where the humidity in the home is over 50%.
Some species of Mold are harmless, but others produce mycotoxins that can be very dangerous to human health. An example is Chaetomium. The Chaetomium spores have been linked to autoimmune diseases, neurological damage and allergic reactions such as difficulty in breathing and watery eyes. Chaetomium flourishes in wet, dark environments such as under carpets, drywall, baseboards, and wallpapers. Chaetomium is often found in drywall that has previously been damaged by water.
~ Exposure to Mold may cause symptoms such as nasal and sinus congestion, runny nose, eye irritation such as itchy, red, watery eyes, respiratory problems, such as sneezing, wheezing and difficulty breathing, coughing, and throat irritation.
~ Some health effects attributed to Mold may be caused by dust mites, bacteria which are found in mold-colonized environments.
~ Mold feeds on all sorts of cellulose materials suck as fabrics, wallpaper, wood, and many other materials found in your home.
~ Mold spores can migrate through the air, through water, and can attach itself to hosts to ride to new locations, such as humans, and their clothing.
~ Some Mold species release mycotoxins into the air, which can be inhaled or absorbed through the skin.
