There are many different types of mold, with some more of a health hazard than others. One of the most feared ones is Stachybotrys Chartarum, also referred to as black mold or toxic mold. This strain of mold should always be handled by a professional, as mold removal must be done in a safe manner to avoid danger to occupants and those handling the removal.
Most of the health hazards related to mold involve long-term exposure or are the result of existing respiratory conditions being exacerbated. Those who have asthma, allergies or a weakened immune system can experience worsening conditions the longer they are in a building or home that has mold. The larger the mold colony, the worse the problem becomes.
In addition to respiratory concerns, mold removal is necessary to avoid such health symptoms as mental impairment, tiredness, skin inflammation, nausea, and irritation of mucous membranes. It is also believed that certain types of mold in high concentrations for extended periods can be more serious.
