Platinum Care Cleaning wants you to be 100 percent aware of the potential dangers of black mold. This is not a blog meant to scare you and your family. It is meant to teach you about what could possibly happen in the case of black mold infestation.
Mold grows under two circumstances: wet and warm. Most species of mold are harmless and some beneficial. The molds that produce myotoxins, such as black mold, are the ones that can be dangerous.
The main issue with black mold is the way it can be absorbed into the body. Inhalation is the most common way black mold enters the body. Once in the body, it can trigger asthma attacks, breathing issues and worse, severe lung problems including bleeding.
The true effects of black mold are frightening. Left untreated or ignored, cancer is common in addition to death. Some less dangerous effects are similar to colds but are chronic. The issues normally pass after the mold is removed.
Black mold grows almost anywhere. Cellulose, such as interior studs and drywall, are the most common locations. This means black mold can grow almost anywhere in the home.
It is a good idea after a particularly bad storm, roof or outside home damage that you contact a professional service to inspect your home for potential mold.
