Mold (and mildew) is a fungus. It is very dangerous for people’s health. And it destroys wood, drywall, and other home construction materials too. Mold grows in moist and warm areas.

Mold and mildew is not always easy to detect, especially if it is inside your walls, in the ceiling, or under a rug. Sometimes you can spot mold on surfaces out in the open. It’s usually shades of pink, brown, green, or black. Also, a large amount of mold might leave a musty or sour odor in the air. Mold and mildew release spores into the air that we can inhale into our lungs.
If you can smell mold then you are actually inhaling mold spores at that very moment! In this case you should take immediate action by seeking a proper mold remediation service.
Severe Health Risk
In most people these spores cause severe allergic reactions. People might have symptoms like nasal congestion, watery eyes, difficulty breathing, recurring sicknesses, or general fatigue. Furthermore, according to doctors, mold is also known to cause asthma and life-threatening primary and secondary infections in immune-compromised patients that have been exposed. Toxic mold exposure has also been linked to more serious, long-term effects like memory loss, insomnia, anxiety, depression, trouble concentrating, and confusion.
Doctors and do not recommend living in these hazards conditions. Especially when there are children living in that home since they are more sensitive to these dangerous spores. Once inhaled, spores may germinate, attaching to cells on respiratory tract, causing many problems for people with a weak immune system.
