Mold and Health - How Can Mold Affect You?

Mold and Health - How Can Mold Affect You?

Mold spores are present in the air. They’re part of the natural environment. We can’t control mold growth outdoors, as it plays an important part in decomposing dead organic matter. Indoors, however, mold growth should be prevented by all means. Mold is present in damp, humid environments. Usually, after a flood, or if there are signs of water damage (leaks in roofs, windows, vents, or pipes), mold can grow within 24 to 48 hours. 

Bio-One of Chula Vista offers mold remediation services. Our certified technicians work throughout San Diego County and surrounding communities to properly remediate residential and business properties from mold damage. If left unattended, mold can cause major complications to the property, as well as respiratory health problems.

What is mold, and where does it grow?

Mold is a type of fungi; it encompasses millions of microorganisms that help decompose dead organic matter (trees, leaves, and other organisms). 

There are many types of mold; some are harmless, and others can be very toxic. Spores are released into the air if mold is disturbed, making it easy to make their way indoors. These spores will disseminate in poorly ventilated areas with high humidity levels. All that mold needs to grow is water and organic matter. 

In case you’re wondering, “what is organic matter?” it basically entails all surfaces in the house or property: wallpapers, drywall, house furniture, household items, wooden structures… all of these are surfaces where mold can grow and cause damage. Bio-One of Chula Vista’s certified technicians can help you assess the level of damage in your property, and we ensure to remediate areas affected by mold promptly. 

How are mold and health related?

Mold is quick to consume organic matter, which poses a serious problem in terms of the building structure, not to mention that mold affects the quality of air indoors, making it a dangerous environment for humans and animals to live in. When mold concentrates in small areas, it can affect people with pre-existing health conditions like asthma, lung complications, and other respiratory problems. Furthermore, mold exposure can translate into headaches, allergies, red eyes, and shortness of breath. 

We can restore your home from mold and health problems associated with exposure to it.

If you’re struggling with mold damage in your house or property, let Bio-One of Chula Vista specialists help you. It’s important to tackle the mold problem and promptly fix water-related issues. If you clean up the mold but don’t fix what’s causing it to grow, you will be wasting your time and money and will remain exposed to its health repercussions.
