Much misinformation has been spread about mold. The truth is, there are many types of mold that come in many colors, and not all types are as potentially dangerous as others.
Common symptoms associated with hazardous mold exposure can include skin irritation, congestion, itchy eyes, or sinus problems. People who already have allergies, immune deficiencies, and upper respiratory issues may be at greater risk when exposed to hazardous mold.
The first thing to remember about cleaning up is that mold is the result of a water problem. So, the first step to getting rid of the mold is to identify and fix the source of the water issue. If you don’t, the mold is likely to return, even after a thorough cleaning.
