Dangers of Mold from Water Damage

mold from water damage

When water damage causes mold in your home, you have to take care of right away. California Steam Clean handles mold remediation and can help in this situation. Health problems from mold, like respiratory problems, pneumonia, headaches, and asthma, are serious. Mold also contributes to allergy problems. Young children, the elderly, and those with pre-existing health conditions are more at risk for negative health consequences from the mold. 

Regardless of the cause, water damage is a major problem when it affects a home. When water gets into a home, it may seep into walls, upholstery, and carpeting. Even when it seems the water is completely dried up, if it hasn’t been cleaned professionally it can provide a breeding ground for mold. 

Black Mold from Water Damage in a Home

Black mold is very toxic and can be a result of water damage. It feeds on organic materials and is often hides in insulation, sub-flooring, carpet, and drywall. As black mold grows, it releases spores into the air. The spores are a danger when they’re ingested or inhaled by anyone in the home. Also, “black” mold, it can appear green. If you see black or green mold in your home from water damage, call California Steam Clean for mold remediation as soon as possible. 

Symptoms of Mold Exposure from Water Damage 

Symptoms of mold exposure can range from mild to severe. Most often, mold causes chronic wheezing, coughing, and breathing issues. Some people also report sneezing, sore throats, and eye irritation. Chronic fatigue and rashes are other possible symptoms. The most severe health problem caused by mold is pneumonia. 

If you or anyone in your home experiences these symptoms after water damage, consult a doctor. California Steam Clean’s mold remediation technicians will inspect your home and remove mold completely.
