Mold Exposure Can Effect A Whole Community

Mold can trigger allergies and asthma attacks, irritate the eyes throat and nose and effect a whole community. In today’s news about mold, a hospital’s educational center in Georgia closed due to mold. Excessive rain and humidity in the summer led moisture into the walls of the education center and mold grew. Eighteen employers were relocated and three were treated for upper respiratory symptoms. Another school in Pennsylvania just discovered mold in their school. Mold found in schools is extremely dangerous because many kids are at risk of all the health issues. There may be children who have asthma and if mold is present, it can trigger asthma attacks. The school will not open until it is a healthy environment for the children, employers and teachers. So what would happen if these two locations didn’t remove the mold? Some of the mold can produce toxic substances and trigger some allergies. In fact, allergies are the firth leading cause of chronic illness.

We hear about these stories where schools and buildings close because mold spreads and grows fast. Mold will grow after spores are attached to an object. Mold will grow in an area where there is little air circulation and moist. Mold spore will travel throughout the air and attach itself to any damp surface and start to grow. According to superrestoration.com, “Mold can easily grow within 24 to 48 hours, and will begin to colonize in 1 to 12 days.” Mold can grow fast and one can try to clean it and get rid of the mold source, and it is important to reach out to a mold restoration company for a permanent remediation because if not taken appropriate action of the removal, the mold will come back.
