Home mold inspections are the only way to ensure that the air quality in your residence is safe for you and your family. The experienced inspectors at ASAP Environmental, Inc. are certified by the Indoor Air Quality Association Council to perform these microbial inspections.
The Prevalence of Mold in Buildings
Statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau indicate that approximately 35 percent of American homes receive water damage each year. Therefore, the opportunity for mold to damage structures and cause illness to occupants is substantial. Any construction flaw or damage to a structure can allow moisture to enter, which often creates the potential for mold growth. Wood, cellulose, and other organic building materials provide fertile conditions for mold when they become wet. Rooms with high water usage, including laundry rooms, bathrooms, and kitchens, are also susceptible to mold growth.
Health Effects of Mold Exposure
Mold spores can grow in almost any environment, whether indoors or outdoors, and almost everyone is exposed to at least some level of contamination. Indoor mold growth, in particular, can lead to increased exposure and a multiplied potential for health issues. Common health issues include respiratory issues such as chronic coughing, excessive sneezing, eye irritation, and persistent headaches. Prolonged exposure may cause everything from vomiting to even bleeding in the lungs. Infants, young children, pregnant women, the elderly, as well as individuals with weakened immune systems, allergies, asthma, and other breathing problems have a higher risk of experiencing complications.
