Your Indoor Air Quality: Is the Air You Breath Contaminated by Mold?
When you are relaxing comfortably in your home, is the air you're breathing actually clean and healthy? You shouldn't be too quick to answer. When it comes to the air indoors, most people simply assume that it is safer and cleaner than the air outside. It seems like common sense as their is no smog, exhaust fumes, or heavy chemical pesticides inside one's house. However, while those are common types of air pollutants, indoor air quality can still be poor due to a number of factors.
How is the Quality of Indoor Air Affected by Mold?
Invisible to the naked eye, mold spores are minuscule particulates. There is no place that is safe from these spores. They could be swirling around your head right now and you wouldn't even know it. So without even being aware, you might be inhaling mold spores everyday.
Keep in mind that there are several things to take into consideration before you run out and buy a protective mask.
First off, the conditions have to be right for mold to grow and thrive. Water or moisture, plus a good food source, must be present for there to be be mold spores. Mold spores often begin to grow when they get damp or wet, and they occur naturally in most building supplies.
The indoor air could be hazardous to your health if you have seen or smelled mold in your home. It is important to realize that mold may be growing in your home even if you haven't seen it.
Refrigerator drip pans, air conditioner drip trays, and the inside of dehumidifiers are just a few places mold can grow unseen, in addition to more obvious places like on walls and in carpets. The majority of people wouldn't even think to look in these places.
Stachybotrys, also known as "toxic black mold", is one of the most dangerous forms of indoor mold. Serious health problems can occur in both children and adults who are exposed to this mold. This is one invader you definitely don't want to be sharing the air with.
This mold can grow in the walls, under the floor, and above the ceiling - it can grow anywhere, and that's the problem. Without even realizing it, the air you breathe can be polluted with this toxic mold. There are numerous problems that can be caused by breathing this contaminated air, including severe allergies, nosebleeds, headaches, fatigue, and loss of memory.
