The Dangers of Mold in Maryland Homes
Mold growth in homes or indoor living spaces lead to a variety of potentially harmful health conditions. Elevated fungal levels in the indoor environment typically will cause allergic reactions, respiratory issues, infections, and brain fog or cloudiness. Liver problems and carcinogenic repercussions have also been linked to toxic fungal environments in the indoor living space as well (i.e. mycotoxins).
Molds can also release mycotoxins which can be especially harmful to those with weakened immune systems or chronic illnesses. A mycotoxin is a toxic secondary metabolite produced by some fungi, and is capable of causing disease and death in both humans and animals. A primary metabolite during the life cycle for fungus is production of mVOCs or microbial volatile organic compounds, commonly identified as a musty smell
Aside from health concerns, exposure to mold growth on the building materials of your home can lead to serious structural or aesthetic damage, resulting in costly repairs.
It is crucial to take the proper steps and precautions when addressing mold growth, and also important to remediate in a timely fashion to protect both health and property.
