Recognizing and eliminating mold can help property owners avoid potential health and legal consequences. Symptoms associated with mold exposure include respiratory issues, persistent coughing, and irritated lungs, throat, and eyes. Individuals at greater risk of complications include those with asthma, seasonal allergies, underlying medical conditions, young children, and the elderly.
Increased moisture levels, instances of flooding, plumbing issues, HVAC system malfunctions, roof and window leaks, inadequate ventilation, and the age of your property's structure all contribute to the formation of mold. Moreover, materials like particleboard, drywall, and plywood are more prone to mold growth.
