Mold: It's All Around

After explaining that while mold growth in the home is likely dangerous to your health, the mold itself is a helpful environmental process that helps break down organic matter.

However, once potentially toxic mold gains a foothold in a home, thanks to a mixture of mold spores and moisture, things quickly change.

"One of the main signs of toxic mold in the home is worsening of health conditions like asthma and allergies," says Five Star Restoration's Nick Smuts. 

Indeed, according to the CDC, the science has been settled regarding toxic mold and respiratory issues. 

Signs Of Mold

As established, mold grows thanks to moisture and spores. Many harmful growths occur through the presence of floodwater, an unexpected ceiling leak, and high humidity in the home.

Likewise, something as innocuous as setting your air conditioning unit in a dark, warm place during the summer can cause literal headaches next summer. 

"Making sure [air conditioners are] clean is crucial to keeping your family safe. When you're not using an air conditioner, what remains? A warm, dark environment for mold to thrive. The next time you break out your A/C unit for the summer heat, you may be greeted with mold growth," says Smuts.

In that case," the article continues, "replacing that air conditioning unit is a good idea. Be sure to check your A/C unit for damage and mold growth. If it's a window unit, it's often a good idea to replace it."

Peeling wallpaper, dark spots on the walls, and allergies and colds that just won't go away are all signs that mold has grown. In short, even mild water damage in the home can set off a domino effect of mold adversely affecting your family.
