Mold and your health
Mold in your home is a major health risk. The longer you leave it the worse it gets, so you don’t want to wait too long to fix it. Mold is the common word for any fungus that grows in damp places in homes and business. To reproduce, molds release spores into the air, spores that are small enough that people can actually breathe them in, which can cause health problems such as:
Eye, nose and throat irritation
Coughing and phlegm build-up
Wheezing and shortness of breath
Molds come in many colors including white and/or black mold. Dampness results from water incursion either from internal sources like leaking pipes, water heaters or malfunctioning dishwashers; or outside sources such as rainwater coming through a leaking roof. Northern Capital Restoration has a team who is well trained and prepared to assess your property and determine the source of moisture and then takes the proper steps to mitigate your mold issues.
