The idea of living with mold is pretty scary and there are several mold types that look similar to black mold. That’s why you need Project X Restoration in Denver to help in identifying mold in your home. If you have leaky pipes, roof leaks, lack of ventilation, floods, water in the basement, or condensation, you may have toxic black mold. Did you know that after your home has suffered water damage, mold can begin to grow in two days? That’s how fast mold can create a wide variety of dangerous health risks for you and your family.
An article in Black Mold Award Space, explains how to know if you have black mold growing in your home. Toxic black mold looks slimy and greenish-black. It needs water to grow. With water, it begins to feed off of organic materials like drywall, wood, and cloth. Stachybotrys Chartarum is the real name for black mold. It produces toxins called mycotoxins.
There are signs that mold may be present in your home, including musty odors, humid conditions, itchy eyes and runny nose, dizziness and headaches, long-term dampness, stained or discolored floors and walls, peeled paint and bubbling wallpaper, warped walls and bowed supports, or damp surfaces.
Identifying mold in your home is important because its mycotoxins can create symptoms like nausea, respiratory problems, mental impairment, tiredness, skin inflammation, hemorrhage, damage to internal organs, irritation of the mucous membranes, and immune system suppression. Toxic black mold can lead to permanent health problems and even death. The mycotoxins kill neurons in the brain and impair your mental ability. They can also cause nervous disorders such as tremors and personality changes such as mood swings and irritability.
