Category: toxic mold
Mold is a general name for several types of fungi: patches of growths which are fuzzy and smelly. These growths can develop in many different colours, including black, brown, yellow, pink, green, and more. An enormous variety of species of mold are found both in both indoors and outdoors locations. Mold spores are a common component of dust found in workplaces and households. As such, it is prudent to inspect and secure occupied spaces from health risks of toxic mold. Mold in home or workplace buildings is a serious concern for the health of those who inhabit or work there. Up to 40 percent of American schools and 25 percent of homes are reported to have mold infestations of some kind.
Not all molds are harmful to humans. But there are a few molds that can seriously affect our health when we come in contact with them. One of which is black toxic mold, or more scientifically speaking, “stchybotrys chartarum” molds. Since it’s difficult for us to determine which molds are harmless and which are threatening, a mold inspection should be performed by professional companies if you encounter mold in your home. If your house is clean, then “passing” the mold inspection will make you feel more assured about the status of your home; if your house is indeed infected after the mold inspection, it’s better to know sooner rather than later.
