There have been several million different moulds identified to date. To begin to list them all and the effects possible from exposure would be an impossible task. We recommend that if you have been exposed to and feel any adverse effects from a mould source that you seek medical attention immediately!
Exposure to mould can cause varying respiratory tract problems. Some of them are less serious but they should not be ignored. Runny nose, headache, dizziness, asthma aggravation and fatigue are some of the less serious symptoms experienced. More severe symptoms can include profuse bloody noses, extreme headaches, and coughing up blood.
Poor ventilation that allows moisture to build up can result in mould growth. Improper restoration after water damage from flooding, sewer backups, and water line breaks also creates environments that encourage mould growth. Attic spaces with less than optimum amounts of insulation and ventilation can provide ideal conditions for mould to grow.
Mould is an organism, it has defense mechanisms, release of spores, and toxins can contaminate the area and has the potential to spread the mould growth to other areas. It is important that you use a certified removal technician when dealing with mould remediation.
