Did you know that, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, there is thought to be between tens of thousands and 300,000 species of mold in the world? While it is incredibly easy to come into contact with mold during everyday life, it is not something that should be taken lightly. If left untreated, mold can lead to many different health problems.
Most people that become affected by mold tend to already suffer from allergies or weakened immune systems. With this sensitivity already in place, the exposure to mold can trigger congestion, skin irritation, trouble breathing, and irritation in the eyes.
If black mold is suspected in your commercial building where people work or go to school, exposure increases since they are exposed to the mold spores for most of the hours in the day. This increased exposure can lead to more severe symptoms.
These symptoms can include things like upper respiratory infections, chronic lung illness, chest inflammation, and more.
