What People Say About Us
Roof Repair, Infrared
Forty-eight hours didn't pass between the time that I called Roofer 911 and work was done. I have an occasional, persistent leak in my roof that has been going on for over 7 years. It even leaked after I replaced the roof and had work done on the chimney. Roofer911 rapidly understood the problem and went to work to correct it. I dreaded Nor'easters but now I can't wait for one.

Dangerous Black Mold Symptoms

 

Black Mold Symptoms Due to a Roof Leak

There is sufficient evidence to link health induced diseases to exposure to black mold. Mold spores drop and grow on places where there is excessive moisture, possibly from a roof leak.

Conditions may include; upper respiratory tract symptoms, cough, and wheeze in people with good health. Those with existing asthma symptoms and hypersensitivity pneumonitis are even more at risk caused by molds.

Home building materials provide nutrients that encourage black mold to grow. Wet cellulose materials, including paper products, ceiling tiles, and wood products, are particularly conducive for the growth of molds. Other materials such as dust, paints, wallpaper, insulation materials, drywall, carpet, fabric, and upholstery, commonly support moisture and mold growth.

Why it's so important to have leaks fixed.

Stachybotrys chartarum is a greenish-black mold. It can grow on material such as fiberboard, gypsum board, paper, dust, and lint. Growth occurs when there is moisture from water damage, excessive humidity, water leaks, condensation, water infiltration, or flooding. All molds should be treated the same with respect to potential health risks and removal. Mold growing in homes indicates that there is a problem with water or moisture.

Toxin-Related Illnesses

Common ailments from mold, including allergies and excessive bruising. Serious diseases and injuries, including infant lung hemorrhaging, cancer, brain damage, and other cognitive deficiencies, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, reactive airway dysfunction syndrome (RADS), and various other health problems:

  • muscle pain, cramps, burning, unusual shooting pains
  • headaches
  • fatigue, weakness, flu-like symptoms, fever, chills
  • shortness of breath, cough
  • abdominal pain, diarrhea
  • burning eyes, red eyes, sensitivity to light
  • difficulty with thought processes, memory loss, loss of concentration, confusion, disorientation, “brain fog”
  • dizziness, balance problems
  • numbness and tingling
  • temperature regulation problems
  • rash
  • kidney disease
  • Increased infections

Mold produces airborne toxins that can cause serious mold allergy symptoms.  Invasive apergillosis, is a far more serious form of the disease, actually invades and damages your body tissue. Usually settling in your lungs, but sometimes in other organs as well. The disease is capable of spreading throughout your body. You usually can be treated and the affects reduced after you leave your contaminated environment. Often medication, diet, and other treatment protocols are necessary.

Other health problems may remain permanently, such as brain damage and weakened immune systems.  Eyesight, memory, coordination/balance, and hearing are generally the most common residual effects that often do not improve after treatment in most cases.

The owner of Roofer911 has experienced black mold symptoms just by being in homes where mold was present, so what does that say for the people living there?
