Mold is not something to overlook. Mold buildup can be dangerous to your health and your home. How? Well, mold is a fungus that spreads through releasing spores. These mold spores float through the air and infect everything in sight. If you are living in a home with a mold outbreak, you are most likely inhaling these spores. Worse, these small pieces of mold can be dangerous. For example, if you are inhaling these spores, you will suffer some symptoms, such as coughing, sneezing, nausea, and vomiting. Breathing in these toxic particles can also have a long-term effects on your family members. If you, or your loved ones, are breathing in spores over an extended period of time, you all could develop serious respiratory disorders. In the worst cases of mold infestations, black mold builds up and infects the air. With black mold, inhaling the spores could be eventually fatal. After breathing in black mold spores for an extended period of time, the lungs can no longer function and bring in air to the body.

Mold Restoration

Aside from breathing in spores that make you sick, mold also can affect your building. If mold is allowed to grow in your home untamed, it will take over an entire area. As it spreads, it will naturally decay what it grows on. In the case of a home, mold will eat away at anything it touches, which means a home made out of lumber is extremely vulnerable. Mold will be able to sit and rot the wood until it has been completely weakened. If you have a roof mold infestation, this could drum up major problems, as your roof support system could be compromised. Though a weakened roof is stress-inducing, the cost of roof repairs is also enough to make your hair stand on end. Not only will you have to pay for major restoration services, you will also be responsible to repair or replace the infected areas of your home. This, obviously, can be very expensive and cause unneeded stress. The best way to keep this from happening is by routinely checking your home for mold spots. By finding the spots early, you will be able to make sure they don’t spread and cause damage to your home.
