Mold is a fungus that reproduces by creating spores. Mold spores get into the air you breathe inside your home and cause health issues for you and your family. Mold thrives where there is moisture. Keeping moisture out is harder than it may seem. There are obvious sources of moisture you can watch out for such as leaks in the plumbing and roof. But there are other ways moisture can get in that are harder to control. Steam from cooking and bathing can encourage mold growth. Condensation is a problem too.
Mold exposure can cause several health issues such as:
- Eye irritation
- Nasal stuffiness
- Skin irritation
- Shortness of breath
- Chronic lung illnesses
- Mold infection in lungs
