Mold Inspection: About Sick Building Symptoms

Toxic mold is never something you want to take lightly. In a home environment you spend hours and hours sleep, eating and relaxing in your personal space.

If toxic mold is living with you, it can make you severely sick.

Mold exposure is greatest in residential buildings because people are expected to spend more time at home than any other single location.

If you are renting a home or apartment, it is important that you make clear that your landlord inspects regularly your place of residency for mold so you will not become ill because of toxic mold.

The following are toxic mold symptoms to look for in your home:

– Bad indoor air quality.

-You can see black mold growing on the ceilings, walls and floors of your home.

To heal a sick building,  tell a landlord to do mold inspection.

During a mold inspection, a mold remediation company should conduct the following actions:

-Make sure there is no black staining present on walls and ceilings.

– Examine all water sources in the kitchen and bathroom for proper function (no leaks).

– Have  porches, the basement and any storage areas inspected for mold. Often these areas can maintain debris that help mold thrive.

– Smell the air for mildew, often the smell of mildew is a hint that mold is present.

It is important to know that the first real symptoms of mold exposure being present in a building comes from people who live in the building for weeks or months. Some symptoms seen in people are chronic sinusitis, repeated sneezing, skin rashes, and headaches when exposed to toxic mold.

Until mold is safely removed, it is wise to move temporarily to a safer living space.
