by / Friday, 07 July 2017 / Published in Mold Removal, Restoration USA Tips

In the tropical environment of Florida, conditions tend to be humid and damp. This is welcoming to many things – among them being mold. Mold thrives in areas with elevated moisture and this goes for your home or business. Formation of mold can have a variety of effects such as dirty aromas, ugly displays of color on walls and floors, and even worse, health hazards. Though some people are less sensitive and even not affected by mold much, others face huge threats.

 

People who are prone to problems from mold experience feats like stuffy noses, eye irritation, coughing or wheezing, and sometimes have itchy, dry skin reactions. These risks are elevated even greater to those who may be allergic or have some sort of compromised immune system. People who have lung diseases may come face to face with serious infections. In order to prevent these hazards, avoiding areas that are possibly manifested by mold is needed.

 

When mold makes its way into the home, it must be taken care of as soon as possible before it spreads. With the possibility of worsening, people who are handy may try to take matters into their own hands. Restoration USA would advise against this. Removing mold is a job best left to experienced professionals.

 

Mold Versus The Human Body

Mold can trigger many bodily issues. For many, especially those allergic to mold, asthma can worsen and also induce asthma attacks. Your skin, eyes, nose, throat, and lungs are not safe either. Mold can create a painful irritation that may feel like burning. Along with this, inhaled mold can cause illnesses to these areas that may be sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, skin rash and lung infections or even pneumonitis. Other problems that come about from mold contact are athlete’s foot and yeast infections.

 

To lower your risk while being in a moldy area, it is recommended to wear gloves and avoid touching mold or moldy areas. Use protective goggles and masks that block out exposure to the face. And a great thing is to use fans, dehumidifiers, and air conditioners that you have to reduce moisture in the air.
