Mold is always a present danger in the Pacific Northwest. With constantly elevated moisture levels during the rainy season, many properties harbor the perfect conditions for these fungal spores. Seeing it is the easiest way to identify it, but mold can live and grow in walls, ceilings, and floors. Without mold removal by AWR Restoration & Cleaning, it can thrive and cause your family harm.
Mold Exposure Symptoms
Depending on the type of mold present on your property, you may experience varying symptoms. No matter what their toxicity level, nearly all molds can cause allergic reactions. This may lead to complications like respiratory infections or an increase in the severity of asthma effects.
Many molds produce toxins – and the mycotoxins produced by black mold are some of the worst. Thriving in damp, warm places, black mold grows especially well in this climate. If you forego mold removal in Tacoma, black mold can cause irreparable health problems and even lead to death.
Symptoms of black mold exposure include:
- Early symptoms – Those affected by sickness associated with black mold often mistake it for a cold or allergies in the earliest stage. It can manifest as itchy skin, itchy eyes, skin irritation, sneezing, and headaches.
- Intermediate symptoms – If mold is not removed, those who remain in the affected area for an extended time can get intermediate symptoms. These require immediate medical attention and should not be ignored. They include constant fatigue, constant headaches, diarrhea, vomiting, weight loss, chronic bronchitis, skin rashes, and short-term memory loss.
- Advanced symptoms – Permanent symptoms can occur when mold is not removed and intermediate symptoms are not addressed. These include memory loss, brain damage, bleeding lungs, cancer, and death.
These effects are magnified in young children. If you have any concerns about mold, have symptoms, or just want to be safe, call us for accurate and fast mold testing and mold removal in Tacoma.
