A Closer Look a Toxic Mold
Many homeowners have heard how dangerous mold in your house could be and how important it is to get it removed immediately. These dangers are associated with a certain type of mold referred to by many as “toxic mold. The term toxic mold is somewhat misleading, as many molds and fungi can cause harm. What causes the danger are toxins called “mycotoxins.”
What Are Mycotoxins?
Mycotoxins are toxins that are produced by molds and fungi. The presence of mycotoxins is especially irritating to people who suffer from allergies or asthma. If high levels of mycotoxins are inhaled over time, they can cause serious health issues or even death.
When you have water damage, a professional will test the level of mycotoxins in the building to determine if the environment is dangerous to your health. Mycotoxins are extremely small (.1 microns or less) and are very difficult to remove from an environment.
This makes it extremely important to hire a mold remediation professional if you have a water damage repair project. They will do the appropriate testing, and if mycotoxins are found, they know how to safely and completely remove all mold – both the visible mold and mold that may be growing in the walls, carpeting, and subfloor.
What is Black Mold?
The most dangerous form of mold to humans is black mold. The mycotoxins in black mold can irritate the skin and lungs. Symptoms of black mold exposure include rashes, infections, breathing problems, and other respiratory problems.
Black mold can also grow in non-visible places such as in the walls and under flooring, making it imperative to have a professional who can test for mycotoxins and completely remove all black mold from an indoor environment.
