Are you aware of the Health Hazards of Mold?
Mold spores are in the air all around us. These spores become dangerous when given a food source (like wood or paper) and water source which allow them to reproduce and grow. Mold remediation is the effective removal of mold growth and settled spores to a level that is less than or equal to typical background or outside levels. The most effective way to protect your family and property from the threat of mold is to have it remediated immediately by a qualified professional. Fleck Contracting offers complete mold remediation services including identification, removal and cleaning up remaining surface (if possible).
Health risks related to mold have been receiving a great deal of attention in recent years. Mold and mildew are the #1 element of allergic symptoms which can lead to severe health problems such as asthma and other respiratory complications, as well as, skin rashes, fatigue, headaches, throat and eye irritation.
Mold can enter your residence or work place in a number of ways. Once mold is inside, spores need only two things to colonize: a source of moisture and something to feed on. Your home or office has plenty of both. Common places for trapped moisture are damp basements, leaky pipes, crawl spaces, water damaged walls and ceiling or wet carpets, in these places mold can feed on wood, drywall, carpets and other common materials.
Mold remediation may become necessary if your place of work or residence has experienced periods of prolonged dampness. Our goal is to help you in understanding and correcting your mold problem. From discovering where and why the surplus of moisture is entering your home and solving the moisture problem, to controlling and removing the contamination at its source.
Health Effects:“All molds have the potential to cause health effects” (US Environmental Protection Agency) “There is abundant evidence from investigations in several countries that symptoms of eye, nose, and throat irritation as well as cough and tiredness and fatigue are present in excess among persons or populations in certain buildings. Although several agents have been suggested as causative, the most extensive evidence is found for dampness and mold” (American Industrial Hygiene Association)
Structural Effects: Building materials that have prolonged exposure to high moisture levels are at significant risk of rot and mold damage. Excess moisture can cause extensive damage to structure and finishings of buildings.
Most Common Health Effects:
- Sore throat
- Difficulty concentrating dizziness
Those at high risk:
- Children: low body weight, underdeveloped immune system, rapid metabolism
- Respiratory sensitivities
