“How to get healthy in 30 Days… Without Taking Any Medicine.”
Not feeling well? Run down? Tired all the time? Can’t breathe? Allergies? Joint Pain? Did you ever think your symptoms may not be chronic and that, perhaps, it is something in your home that’s making you ill? Do you feel better outdoors, or at someone else’s house? Well the cause of your problems might be as simple as black mold.
Black mold refers to multiple types of fungi. The term “mildew” is often used to refer to white or green molds that are often found growing in your closets and on your clothes. Black molds grow indoors and thrive in damp, warm, and humid environments such as your basement, your bathroom and even your attic. Yes, black mold can grow in your attic. Black molds reproduce by forming tiny spores that aren’t visible to the eye. Black mold spores can survive under conditions in which other types of mold cannot grow, such as in dry and cold places. These spores travel through indoor air and when mold spores land on a surface where conditions are right, they grow into black mold.
Allergic reactions to mold are the most common health effects of black mold, and reactions may happen immediately or develop after a period of time following exposure. Both growing black mold and black mold spores may lead to allergic reactions. Asthma attacks may be caused by black mold or black mold spores in people. Even in non-allergic individuals, black mold can irritate the eyes, skin, and airways. For example, the “black mold” Stachybotrys, along with some other types of black mold, produce toxins known as mycotoxins that can cause irritation of the skin and airways in people. Some black molds produce toxic substances, which can even cause death.
The good news in all of this is that black mold is easy to detect in the air. Having an air test performed by a qualified mold testing company can detect the spores and an inspection by a qualified mold inspector can pinpoint the source. Once the source is found, the mold should be remediated by a company that specializes in black mold removal.
