Molds are fungi that can be found indoors as well as outdoors. They grow best in warm, damp, dark, and humid conditions. However, molds can survive in harsh environmental conditions when necessary and they grow on a year-round basis. They reproduce by creating airborne spores that serve as health hazards to humans. Molds also can create structural damage to homes and offices.
Keeping mold at bay is essential for the structural health of your home or office in South Florida because of the region's high humidity levels. When you need to have someone inspect your home or office for the possibility of mold, contact Same Day Inspection. We serve both residential and commercial customers, and we can get results back to you in as little as 72 hours. Our technicians also provide residential and commercial mold testing services.
In addition to causing structural damage to your home or office when left unchecked, mold is a notable health hazard to humans. Exposure to mold can cause nasal congestion, eye irritation, coughing spells, and skin irritation. Some individuals may have more severe reactions, including fever, shortness of breath, and lung disease.
In 2004, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) found there was sufficient evidence to link indoor exposure to mold with upper respiratory ailments in otherwise healthy people. Mold also created more acute asthma symptoms in people with asthma, as well as hypersensitivity pneumonitis in individuals susceptible to that immune-mediated condition.
In terms of your home or office, mold feeds on organic materials and will consume your wooden beams, drywall, wallpaper, and other organic building materials when left unchecked in your home or office. When you spot anything that looks like mold at your home or office, be sure to have it inspected ASAP. We offer same-day inspections upon request.
