One of the worst contaminants known is the silent but dangerous growth of mold. Mold can grow indoors on wet or damp surfaces, such as wallpaper, ceiling tiles, carpets, insulation material, wood, and drywall. Many times it is due to an underlying problem, like a leaky faucet or broken pipe. The source of the water must be determined and eliminated first and foremost. Under the right conditions mold can start to grow within 48 hours and if left unchecked, can have serious impacts on both your quality of life and your home’s physical structure. If mold is present for a prolonged period of time, the exposure to it and its spores can cause health issues in children, the elderly, those with asthma or compromised immune systems and pets. Mold is a fungus and is present everywhere in nature, but when it finds its way into your home it can be a major problem.
Can Mold Kill You?
Any type of mold can be toxic, however, it is rare that mold can actually kill you. Those who have respiratory issues, or allergies or are immunocompromised and are more sensitive to mold, may be affected more severely, especially those who are very young or very old. The symptoms one experiences after exposure to mold depend on how sensitive the body is -- there may be no reaction, a slight reaction, or serious respiratory infections may develop over time, but
Symptoms of mold exposure may include:
- Watery eyes

- Sneezing or coughing
- Dry skin
- Stuffy nose
- Runny nose
