Mold spores can be found almost everywhere , and they thrive in Illinois, where we tend to get over 30 inches of rain each year. Humid weather helps mold proliferate, but overgrowth can also occur when leaking pipes or other issues cause water to soak into building materials.
Since mold produces byproducts that can cause allergies or other health problems in sensitive individuals, an infestation in a commercial or residential building poses a serious threat. Professional intervention is required to ensure the mold growth is remediated and brought back down to normal levels. This will prevent it from causing harm to the surrounding materials and the people who inhabit the space.
Mold Overgrowth and Damage: Handle the Problem Before It Worsens
Mold can damage human health as well as the structures it grows on. The health risks associated with mold exposure vary from person to person. Some people can be around most types of mold and never experience any symptoms, but for those who suffer from allergies, asthma, immune-system deficiencies or other sensitivities, mold exposure can cause a variety of serious problems.
Possible symptoms of mold exposure include:
• Watery or itchy eyes.
• Skin rashes.
• Runny nose.
• Wheezing or difficulty breathing in asthma sufferers.
• Lung infections and other systematic issues in those with weakened immunity.
Mold can also cause damage to the surfaces it grows on. While it doesn’t usually penetrate deeply enough to cause damage to the framework of a building, it can lead to nasty odors and ugly stains on the surfaces of walls, floors, ceilings, cabinets and other
parts of the building. If allowed to thrive, mold overgrowth can cause a building to become totally uninhabitable.
