The Dangers of Mold

The United States Center for Disease Control has linked pulmonary hemosiderosis to toxic mold exposure.

Spending time in a home full of allergy antagonists like mold, mildew and fungus presents the body with a very difficult situation, and can make you sick. Over 50 different types of mold are considered problematic. Mold can grow behind walls, out of sight, and even dead mold can cause illness.

Mold typically grows in building affected by water damage. The potential health risks of exposure to mold include asthma, sinusitis, and infections. Molds have been known to play a major role in cases of sick building syndrome and related illnesses. Molds can also cause allergic reactions.
