Your health can be recognizably affected by breathing in unseen mold. This is because the quality of air is being affected when you have mold in your home or building. If your experiencing headaches, increased allergies, asthma, COPD, coughing or depression, you might not know it but mold may be developing in your home. Many do not realize just how serious mold can be and that it can actually cause cancer if too much mold is inhaled for long periods of time. Rather than treating the indoor air quality by removing the mold, some people would rather go on spending a lot of money on doctor visits and medication.

Harmful Particle Pollution & Mold Spores
When testing your home for mold the amount of particulate matter is also examined. WHO (World Health Organization) reports airborne particulates is more harmful than second-hand smoke if levels of carcinogen are too high. Testing has found that the average particulate amounts found in indoor air quality are 1 ½ to 2 ½ times higher than outdoor levels. This means that the mold in your home can be more harmful than you ever imagined. A high level of mold spores can also be found in many of the homes our contractor's test. Not only do these spores affect allergies, they can also be toxic. These toxins can get into a persons bloodstream and cause various types of organ concerns. Children as young as 1 years old who have been exposed to high levels of mold spores have a higher risk of asthma. They are also susceptible to certain viruses due to the allergens and particulates that they inhale.
