Everything to Know About Mold

Nobody likes to find mold, let alone have it in your home. Mold is a toxic and dangerous fungus substance that is common under the right circumstances. It is vital to be able to recognize mold, know its potential health effects and deal with it immediately. This substance can cause many health problems such as mold sensitivity, mold-related infections, respiratory problems, severe or chronic conditions and symptoms that mimic allergies such as chest and nasal congestion, coughing, sneezing, wheezing, sore throat, water or dry eyes, skin irritation and headaches. Blue River Restoration is your resource for everything about mold.

Mold can put into 3 classifications (Allergenic, Pathogenic, and Toxigenic). Allergenic is a mold that can cause and produce allergies and allergic reactions such as an asthma attack. Pathogenic molds cause health problems in those suffering from an acute illness. Toxigenic molds produce toxic substances that can lead to dangerous or even deadly health conditions. This is sometimes referred to as “toxic mold.”

Under those 3 classifications, there are 12 different types of molds. Knowing about the different forms of mold will help you in identifying mold types that may be present in your home.
