INDOOR ENVIRONMENTAL PROFESSIONALS
Even though Seattle is one of the most innovative and beautiful cities in the United States, residents of the Emerald City still need their home inspected to make sure no dangerous chemicals or materials are affecting their family.
The presence of asbestos, VOCs, and other pollutants is not always obvious, and a professional inspection company is needed to help you create a safe indoor environment for your home.
WHAT IS MOLD?
Mold is part of the natural environment and plays a part in nature by breaking down dead organic matter such as fallen leaves and dead trees. They reproduce by means of tiny spores that float through the air outdoors, and indoors. When spores land on a wet surface indoors they begin to grow. Without mold removal, the growth indoors can produce allergens, irritants, and potentially toxic substances. The worst type of toxic mold is black mold. Outdoors these irritants are so diluted that they don’t cause any problems except for the most sensitive allergenic individuals. But in the confined spaces of the indoor environment can reach higher concentrations and have the potential to cause health problems. Inhaling or touching mold spores may cause allergic reactions. Allergic reactions are common and include hay fever-type symptoms, such as sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, and skin rash. Mold can also cause asthma attacks in people with asthma who are allergic to mold. Mold can hide very well as you may not immediately realize when there is mold until you start feeling symptoms, so it’s crucial that you get mold cleanup done as soon as possible.
