If you have had water damage in your home due to flooding, broken pipes, or other situations, chances are you also have a mold problem. A common occurrence in many homes and businesses where moisture is an issue, mold can grow and spread very quickly. Unfortunately, many people don’t realize they have a problem until the mold has become widespread. When this happens, it’s time to call in professionals to perform the cleanup, such as the experts here at Gateway Restoration.

Can Mold be Harmful?

The answer to this question is a resounding yes. Along with being unsightly, it can also lead to issues with property and the health of those at the property. In fact, if mold is left to grow for as little as 48 hours, it can lead to a variety of problems, which will continue to be compounded until the mold is cleaned up by professionals.

Health Problems from Mold Exposure

While many people pay little attention to mold because they think it is harmless, the fact is many health problems can ensue from prolonged mold exposure. Whether it is in a home, business, school, or other facility or building, mold can affect people of all ages, as well as pets and other animals. While a variety of ailments can occur, some of the most common include headaches, cold-like symptoms, persistent cough, skin irritations and allergic reactions, breathing difficulties, increased problems for those with asthma, and chronic sinus problems. If you find yourself, family members, employees, or pets having increasing problems with coughing, breathing, or allergies, the culprit may be mold.
