Is there a strange looking spotted pattern forming above your shower that you assume is just footprints from the last time Spiderman was walking across the ceiling of your bathroom? Do friends and family ask persistent questions about the expiration date on your milk carton after smelling the musty air in your home?
Are you visiting the doctor on a regular basis asking him whats wrong with your body, only to be answered with a variety of vague responses that seem to be a useless waste of your time spent in the lobby waiting for your doctor to be “ready” for you? Have you slowly experienced an increase in poor health with no adequate explanation other than “You must be getting old”?
If so, you may be the victim of the all to common problem of MOLD in your home.
Mold may be making you sick and you don’t even know it. Some poisons and health altering assassins like food poisoning and the flu strike fast and pack a huge punch. They are easily identifiable and result in horrible medical conditions. Mold is different. Mold is silent. Mold is slow. Mold is often unseen until the problem has become very serious. BUT MOLD IS DANGEROUS! Side Effects of mold growing in your home are broad because their are so many different types of spores that create different symptoms in the human body.
Side Effects of Mold can include but are not limited too:
- Asthma like symptoms
- Shortness of breath
- Burning or watery eyes
- Sinus Congestion
- Itchy skin
- Loss of short term memory
- Sore throat
- Other respiratory problems
- Conditions often identified as MS
If you think mold in your home might be making you sick, don’t try using bleach to get rid of it. This can make the problem worse and while it will get rid of the gross color, it will not kill the mold or stop the growth.
