Dangers of Mold
Mold is a fungus that grows in multicellular structures called hyphae and can be seen as patches of black, white, orange, green, or purple.
Molds play an important part in the ecosystem outdoors. Indoors, they can be problematic and different types of mold can cause health effects at different levels. Some may be harmless, and some can cause several health issues, especially for highly sensitive people. Common ailments associated with exposure to and inhalation of mold include throat irritation, nasal congestion, sneezing, asthma attacks, headaches, itchy eyes, and even skin rashes, especially when exposed to large colonies.
Molds can also seriously damage your home. Molds feed on organic materials that include wood, paper, fabrics, glue, drywall, carpet, floorboards, ceiling tiles, and other organic structures of a property. When left unchecked or unattended, mold can cause damage great enough to lead to the collapse of ceilings or walls. Our mold assessment and testing in Buffalo can help confirm suspicions of mold presence by looking for evidence or indications of mold.
A mold test gives you a snapshot of the amount of mold particles in a certain area at a certain time. However, the amount of mold spores fluctuates over time and from place to place. Because of this, it’s a good idea to test at several different times and in different locations in your home. By doing this, you will get a more complete and accurate picture of the mold problem in your property. The three main types of mold tests are Air testing, Surface testing, and Bulk testing. Ideally, you should use all three types of tests since each has its own strengths, weaknesses, and applications. Schedule Mold Testing Buffalo, NY today!
