Mold is a Hidden Health Risk
Mold isn’t that easy to detect and it can be found both inside and outside a property. Mold is made up of various tiny microscopic organisms that have attached themselves to a solid surface where moisture is consistently present. This type of Rot releases millions of spores into the air that eventually invade the human respiratory system, which poses signiﬁcant health risks.
Symptoms of Mold Issues
Mold can often go unnoticed in a Portland home or business for a very long time. The reason for this is that many of the symptoms associated with mold are identical or very close to other illnesses. For instance, many signs are similar to a cold, ﬂu or allergies like hay fever:
These are just a few of the symptoms associated with general mold allergies. There are other symptoms that often come from toxic mold that are not symptoms of a typical illness.
One way to test if your symptoms may be a mold issue is location. If you ﬁnd that many of your symptoms go away when you are away from your home, this can indicate a deﬁnite mold problem. Usually the best way to test this out is to go away for an extended period of time. Although this is not a sure ﬁre way to be certain, as it could be other allergies.
Another possible indication you live with mold are health issues in the young or the elderly. These two groups are more sensitive to airborn pollutants. Deteriorating health is one of many early warning signs that your property has a possible mold issue.
