Lucas, Texas Mold Air Test
How much was your Lucas home affected by Hurricane Harvey? Probably not at all. But just because we didn’t experience the amount of rain that Houston did doesn’t mean that unwanted water never damages homes in our town. Broken pipes, bad roofing, and dank basements can all give toxic mold a place to thrive. A mold air test can let you know if mold removal service is in your future.
Black mold, more properly known as Stachybotrys chartarum, isn’t something you want to mess around with. It can cause a host of symptoms in people, the most common of which resemble seasonal allergies: sneezing, coughing, itchy and watery eyes, and even rashes. The problem is, these allergies don’t subside with the changes of the season; mold will be there year-round.
Toxic mold symptoms can be even more nefarious as the mycotoxins enter the brain and cause a host of problems, including depression, dizziness, and memory loss. A mold inspection company should be brought in if you’re suffering from any of these problems.
How Mold Gets Started
Mold doesn’t need much to grow, just water and food. This water could be due to flood waters, but it’s just as likely to be from a leaky roof or a broken pipe. Mold feeds on the cellulose on drywall paper backing and the wood frames of homes, but it can survive on almost any woody or paper item.
Though mold can easily be seen in a home that has suffered extensive water damage, mold most often like to grow in darker parts of a home. This often means that it’s behind walls, a place you can’t see it. A mold air test provided by a specialist can determine if you have hidden toxic mold.
