The family all seems a little more sluggish than normal. Even though you are too busy to examine further, you sense there is a deeper issue. It seems that you breathe a little easier when you are away from home or outside. There was extensive rain months ago, but you walked through your home a few weeks after and did not see any visible mold damage.
You looked up a mold remediation company shortly after the significant rain, but it was outside of your budget at the time. Now you are second guessing your decision for a mold remediation company to inspect and perform mold damage restoration.
Health Problems Caused By Mold
Here are some of the health issues that you and your family or employees can face from the presence of high levels of mold on your property.
Ingesting Mold and Mold spores
Mold getting into your body will affect your immune system functions. The mold most often enters the body by breathing it in. It can also be on your hands and enter your body when you eat or drink. Another possible entry point is through contaminated water sources inside or outside your home or business.
Symptoms When Affected by Mold
If you suspect mold damage, pay attention to any serious health symptoms that seem to be from no known cause. Common respiratory symptoms include: allergic reactions, sneezing, coughing, irritated throat, breathing issues, chest tightness, wheezing, lung irritation. Mold can also cause unexplained headaches or skin rashes. Pay attention if visitors ask about a musty odor.

Mold Growth and Identification
The color of mold does not indicate the level of toxicity. Most people think of mold as black or dark in color but it could also be purple, red, pink, white, or a combination of these. When you find colors that are not normal for a specific wall, surface or even on clothing, investigate if it is mold. You may have a hidden mold infestation that is causing underlying health problems.
