Mold and your Health

As part of the mold lifecycle, spores are produced, essentials mold seeds, which can circulate in the air we breathe. People, specially if you have allergies or asthma can be very sensitive to mold.

Some types of mold create danagerous mycotoxins which medical doctors will tell you can be a risk and cause extremely dangerous conditions for the health of your family, as always children and elderly can be particularly susceptible.

Health Impacts of Mould

Whether caused by flooding, condensation or water leakage the resulting mould can impact your health.

You do not need to inhale spores or their mycotoxins, direct contact/touching spores can cause a rash for some people.
