Basement mold can cause many health issues. Asthma and allergies are up 700% in the last 15 years since the energy efficiency trend in homes…coincidence? We think not! Basement mold & crawlspace mold can cause health problems.
Molds produce allergens, irritants, and potentially toxic substances called mycotoxins. Inhaling or touching mold or mold spores may cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. Molds can cause asthma attacks, irritate the eyes, skin, nose, throat, and lungs of both mold-allergic and non-allergic people.
Excessive moisture and poor ventilation can cause mold growth in your home. Mold is easily detected, as it is seen on organic substances such as wood joists, plywood, drywall, dirt, and paper.
Experts agree that the first step to solve an indoor mold problem is to locate the sources of moisture. Your Barrier representative will do this FREE INSPECTION for you!
