MOLD AND THE RISKS TO YOUR HEALTH

That is until it starts to affect the health of anyone in your house, including your pets. Although homes near bodies of water are more susceptible to mold due to increased moisture, any structure can develop mold growth. You will never be sorry you had an inspection for mold in your home. Aurora Home Inspections, LLC has the experience and expertise to look for mold in all the places where it might be hiding.

How Does Mold Affect Your Health?

 

You may be sneezing, coughing, have watery eyes. Usually you assume this is due to
allergies or a cold. The cause could be mold. Mold can lead to serious health issues
for children, adults, and even pets. People with compromised immune systems are
especially susceptible. Symptoms of illness caused by mold infestation can include
asthma attacks, itchy and watery eyes, coughing, throat irritation and sinus congestion.
Pets can exhibit symptoms of mold irritation as well. They might have an increase in
scratching, licking, or chewing on their skin.
