Metrowest, MA – Dangers of Mold in Your Attic | Home Restoration News

Are you ignoring the presence of mold in your attic? Read on to understand how this is not the right decision.

Mold or mildew in your attic is a hazard. Mold is bad for your home because it poses a significant threat to the structure of your house, has a bad odor and can cause many health problems for all residents.

Mold usually occurs in a humid environment. Leakage and condensation can result in the spread of moisture, which can also fuel the growth of mold in your attic. Mold can be brown, yellow, or green in color. Depending on the type of mold present in your attic, it can be extremely dangerous for you and your family.

Let’s look at some problems caused by mold:

Digestive ProblemsQuick to Spread

One of the biggest problems of mold is that it releases mold spores into the atmosphere. Those exposed to mold spores can face gastrointestinal issues such as vomiting, diarrhea, nausea, intestinal tract bleeding, and yeast and bacterial infections. These problems  arise from not only the ingestion of spoiled food but also the penetration of mold through the skin.

Headaches

If you’re allergic to mold, you may experience sinus inflammation and nasal allergies, resulting in severe headaches when exposed to mold.

Coughing

Your immune system may be able to fight mold spores, but it can’t protect you from other reactions such as coughing, an itchy throat, sneezing, a runny nose, and wheezing.

Quick to Spread

If you don’t act in a timely manner to get rid of moisture in your attic, the resultant mold can spread quickly. If that happens, mold will not only pollute the breathing air but also damage the surfaces in your kitchen, living room, and bedrooms, making everyone susceptible to the above-explained risks.

How to Prevent Mold From Spreading?

As soon as you suspect the presence of mold in your attic, the best thing you can do is reach out to a local home restoration company that can immediately respond. Even if you aren’t sure, a thorough inspection should be a good idea to have peace of mind.

When you do consider seeking professional help though, make sure that the restoration team not only focuses on getting rid of mold but also takes measures to prevent it. There’s no point in cleaning mold if the professional does nothing to prevent it from forming again. Some homeowners may attempt to address the situation on their own but their lack of experience and knowledge results in more losses. An experienced team will  be able to restore all the damages at a reasonable cost and a much faster rate than a homeowner.

For emergency cleaning or mold inspection in your attic or any other part of your home, contact the Service Team of Professionals today.
