Why You Shouldn’t Ignore Mold and Seek Out Mold Removal Right Away

Mold Removal in New Bern, North Carolina

APR Restoration understands how difficult it can be to discover mold in your home or business, and how tempting it is to ignore it. Unfortunately, we are also aware that ignoring mold growth can have long-term, long-lasting effects not only on your property but also on your own health and well-being. It is our goal at APR Restoration in North Carolina to make sure that you do not have to suffer from the effects of mold that lingers and grows on your property.

 

Mold Side Effects

Symptoms of mold are not always noticeable to the naked eye, so you should be aware if you, or other people on the property, exhibit any of these signs. It is possible to have more severe reactions to mold exposure, especially if someone has allergies that are exasperated by the mold, such as a sore throat, excessive coughing, eye and skin irritation, wheezing, and more. Additionally, if you have a known lung illness or any kind of compromised immune system, you should be especially careful about exposure to molds, since infection can lead to more serious conditions. Individuals with otherwise healthy immune systems and asthmatic conditions may experience coughing and wheezing, while those with compromised immune systems and asthma may experience exacerbated symptoms.

 

Black Mold

In addition to our expertise in black mold removal, APR Restoration is also known for the fact that it produces mycotoxins that can adversely affect your health. While all molds can cause health problems, black mold is especially toxic because it produces mycotoxins. In order for black mold to grow, spores must travel through the air in order to form colonies. When enough of this mold forms, even the healthiest people can develop negative symptoms and even develop mycotoxicosis, a form of mold poisoning. As a result of black mold poisoning, you may experience flu-like symptoms in your upper respiratory system. If you have asthma or any other pre-existing conditions, you may die from this poisoning.

You can also find black mold on paper, fiberboard, and dust, but it is often confused with green-black mold. It is also harmful and can often spread rapidly if it is exposed to excess moisture from floods, leaks, or condensation. If you are unsure what kind of mold you are dealing with, you might want to consult the experts at APR Restoration. We can identify the mold type and take the necessary steps to remove it quickly and completely from your home or business.
