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.
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:
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?
