Mold can be very dangerous, especially when it gets into the walls, ceiling, or floors of a home. Its spores can cause far more trouble than a bad smell or minor allergies. It can trigger asthma attacks, create toxins that cause whole-body sickness, and cause serious respiratory tract irritation. This is especially dangerous for babies, young children, and people who are already frail. Anyone with a pre-existing respiratory condition is also at risk of extreme complications from mold.
If you feel physically better after you’ve been out of the house for a while, it’s a good idea to get a mold inspection. There’s a good chance that you need mold remediation Oceanside CA. Of course, if you directly see or smell mold, you know that there’s a problem. Sometimes, though, the mold will grow unnoticed on the insides of walls or other seemingly-enclosed areas of a home’s architecture. Then, there may be no direct signs that it is present other than a general malaise.
A house can be mold-free for years and then suddenly develop a problem. This often results after a house has been exposed to high quantities of water from sources like leaky pipes, burst waterbeds, backed-up sewer lines, or even natural flooding. Other causes are more insidious. High humidity or temperatures that are favorable for mold growth can turn a few spores into a wall full of mold growth.
