According to the National Center for Healthy Housing, a healthy home is one that is designed, constructed, maintained, and conditioned in a manner that is conducive to good occupant health.
ONECALL MOLD REMEDIATION IS THE RIGHT PLACE FOR YOU!
A healthy home should be dry, clean, safe, pollutant-free, ventilated and maintained before it’s called healthy. With this in mind, if you wish to be healthy and happy, the environment in your house should reflect that. Being surrounded by dirt, mess, and clutter can impact you’re your physical and mental health. A thorough and deep clean and declutter can greatly help you.
We generally don’t think too much about our environment affecting our wellbeing, but our environment, and hidden mold spores, could be the cause of that recurrent cold, or that persistent cough at night that keeps us awake.
The structure of most homes nowadays makes the property more prone to mold growth in places where you don’t normally look. But the fact that it’s hidden doesn’t change the health problems it causes. Mold grows fast on wood, drywall, and wallpaper.
Another factor is energy efficiency — in an attempt to keep your home warm, if it lacks proper ventilation, you could be making it a perfect breeding ground for mold. This buildup can lead to allergic reactions on one in every three people, and significantly aggravate asthma in those who already suffer from it.
Regardless of your location, it is always necessary to reduce the quantity of mold and mildew you and your family are breathing in. If you sense an earthy or musty odor in your home or workplace, chances are that it is probably infested with mold or mildew.
Of course, if you actually see mold in your home or office, then you know for sure you have a problem. Keep in mind that most of the toxic mold floating around us at home is actually invisible to the naked eye.
You should consider having an expert check your home for mold infestation. Professionals normally verify if there are any visual indications of discoloration, peeling, or water seepage. Furthermore, faint musty smells are good reasons to suspect there is mold and call in an expert. If you’re also battling constant physical symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, dry eyes, or rashes, don’t hesitate to set an appointment for an in-home consultation.
