Mold Maladies and Mycotoxins
Mold in and of itself is not harmful. However, mold produces mycotoxins and spores that can be very damaging to a person’s immune system. Mold is most harmful to a person’s respiratory system and can cause numerous short term and long term effects. Some short term effects include headaches, difficulty breathing, a sore throat, fatigue, and nausea. These symptoms typically disappear once the person is removed from the area housing the mold. Long term effects include bronchitis, pneumonia, mental deficiencies, heart problems, cancer, lupus, and bleeding lungs. If you’ve experienced long term exposure to mold, it is recommended that you visit a doctor to have a wellness exam.
Mold Remediation Services
Mold has become more a more prevalent problem today due to homes being built in a more energy efficient manner. While environmentally conscious, energy efficient homes reduce outside air flow, meaning that air is more often recirculated, leaving moisture trapped inside the home. The temperatures at which we keep our indoors are also great incubators for mold growth, despite the dry nature of Salt Lake City. However, the professionals at Utah Disaster Services understand how and where mold forms. We know where to look for it and how to get rid of it- for good. If you suspect trapped moisture or a mold problem, call us today to schedule an inspection!
If you have noticed mold growth, call Utah Disaster Services immediately! We will assess and inspect for mold growth, then quarantine any areas where mold is found in order to keep you and your family safe. While we perform mold remediation, our AMRT certified technicians work to ensure that all mold and moisture is completely removed. Don’t wait too long before handling your mold problem- contact us today for a free remediation estimate!
What is Mold?
Mold is a fungus that can grow almost anywhere. It will grow on any organic material, which includes sheet rock, carpet, wood, dirt, and any other material that was once living. Most of the materials used to build homes now are organic, meaning that mold can grow virtually anywhere inside of our homes, including inside walls. We can’t control the materials in our home, but we can control the moisture level inside of our home. Mold requires moisture to grow, and even though Salt Lake City has a dry climate, many homes have hidden areas that are moist enough to facilitate mold growth. Even under carefully controlled circumstances, mold can still grow where a leaky pipe sits undetected or condensation has seeped into a wall.
