How Mold Affects Your Home
Are you wondering if your Bradenton home or business needs to be tested for mold? If so, there are a few things you should know that will help you decide whether to seek Bradenton mold testing. Firstly, if you’ve had any water leaks or water intrusion, it is likely that there has been mold growth if the water has not been dried immediately and properly. Additionally, as buildings have become more tightly constructed, moisture and humidity levels increase, and this is the favorite breeding ground for mold.
How Mold Affects Your Health
The quantity and type of airborne mold in your indoor space is what is important. Airborne mold can have some adverse effects on your health. Most mold spores are allergenic and can cause a variety of symptoms. This can be especially troublesome for people with asthma, COPD, and other respiratory issues. If any of your family members are experiencing chronic allergic symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, itchy eyes, and dry skin, you may have elevated mold in your home. A professional assessment by a Certified Mold Assessor is the best way to determine if mold is the culprit.
If you are worried about mold in your Bradenton home, our experts can conduct visual inspections, air and surface sampling, and protocol preparation.

Where Does Mold Typically Grow in a Home?
Mold grows in dark, damp places such as basements, crawl spaces, attics, laundry rooms, kitchens, bathrooms, inside walls and air cooling/heating systems. Any area that has water leakage or elevated humidity levels is also a good breeding ground. However, mold spores are not restricted only to the area where the mold is found. They can become airborne and enter other areas of the home. And, more importantly, they can be inhaled by you and your family, causing a variety of reactions. While most symptoms are mild or moderate, mold can lead to dangerous health conditions. If you suspect you may have a mold issue, contact Expert Mold Test in Bradenton right away. Your family can soon be breathing better and feeling healthier, too.
