Mold and Health
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention says “In 2004 the Institute of Medicine (IOM) found there was sufficient evidence to link indoor exposure to mold with upper respiratory tract symptoms, cough, and wheeze in otherwise healthy people”. According to the CDC “Other recent studies have suggested a potential link of early mold exposure to development of asthma in some children, particularly among children who may be genetically susceptible to asthma development, and that selected interventions that improve housing conditions can reduce morbidity from asthma and respiratory allergies, but more research is needed in this regard. Nothing is more important to Brothers Restoration than our customers their Families and their health.
Water and mold make a pretty destructive when it comes to building structures. Water activates spores on organic surface. Mold feeds on these materials and greatly reduces their strength as well as allows deeper water intrusion. Water intrusion continues the deterioration of the surfaces and allows further growth. Large support structures like king studs and even support beams can be damaged after enough time of water and spore presence. Finding growth early and removing it is the best way to protect your home or business from more damage. We have had damage so bad that we even had to remove exterior walls to fully treat the ruined areas.
