How Mold Affects You?

We use personal protection equipment or commonly known as PPE during mold remediation.

Mold Can Cause Health Effects

Did you know Mold is also known to cause negative health effects. Not all Mold is dangerous as you will see below, however,  Toxic mold or black mold has been linked to more serious or negative health effects.  Air quality tests are one way to detect this type of mold.

There are over 100,000 different types of mold.  Not all types of mold are dangerous.  Some types of mold have medicinal uses.  For example, penicillium is used in the production of penicillin, an antibiotic commonly prescribed to cure strep throat, bronchitis and other forms of infection.

The problem with there being so many species of mold is that differentiating toxic molds from household molds is nearly impossible for an untrained professional. If you discover mold growth in your home, you should call the mold remediation experts at SERVPRO of Des Moines NW at (515) 986-3711.
