Check Your Home For Mold
Mold is never a good sight to see, especially when it’s in your home. After water damage strikes, there’s a good chance you’re going to spot some. Mold is the worst part of water damage. It’s difficult to get rid of and has the potential to cause health risks to you and anyone else in the home, which is why it’s so important to take care of the mold and quickly!
The biggest issue we have with mold is the health concerns. The health risks hit harder with elderly and children, two groups that need this the least. People with weak immune systems are also on the radar. Most of the time mold creates flu-like or allergy-like symptoms. This can be anything from coughing, sneezing, wheezing, itchy or runny eyes, itchy nose, and irritated throat, respiratory issues, and even some more serious problems. Check with your doctor to see if the symptoms are actually from mold. The symptoms may last longer than average. Some health issues related to mold even end fatally.
To avoid these health problems, make sure you’re checking out your home. Keep an eye out for wet spots, staining, or anything else that may lead to the conclusion of water damage. Unnoticed water damage will turn into mold damage. Wet carpets are famous for this. If water or any other liquids sit on the carpet for more than 48 hours, you’re at risk for mold. Make sure to dry out the area thoroughly to avoid mold growth.
