Why Should I Have My Mold Tested?
No scientist or mold remediation specialist knows just how many types of mold exist on the planet, but some estimates range as high as 300,000. When it comes to the mold in your home, you could be facing a mold issue with a harmless mold that doesn’t seem to affect your health, or you could be working with toxic species of mold that present a significant impact. By having your mold tested, not only will you make clear just what type of mold you may be exposed to, but the best way to get rid of it, and the most accurate mold testing methods are those performed by professionals in mold remediation.
When you have toxic mold in your space, you could experience a vast array of different symptoms. At first, these symptoms may be a little irritating, but they will grow more severe as the mold continues to grow or you expose yourself further. Trouble breathing, throat irritation, headaches, dizziness, coughing, congestion, ear infections, and flu like symptoms are common signs that the mold in your home may be making you sick, and these can grow severe enough to result in hospitalizations in those with asthma or other health complications.
When you have your mold tested, you’ll know right away if you’re working with a type of mold that may be making your sick, and in these instances, you’ll also know that the removal of the mold should be left strictly to the professionals. With toxic species of mold, exposure can lead to worsened symptoms quickly, and you’ll want to make sure you don’t touch the mold or breathe in the spores as you work to clean the problem up. Also, different types of mold will require different cleanup processes, which a professional will be able to undertake to maximize efficiency.
