Mold can appear in a home or even a commercial building for several reasons. One of the most common causes is water infiltration. Action must be taken immediately before it grows too large. In which case people in contact with this environment may develop health problems.
They are usually found in the corners of walls and ceilings, behind furniture, on bathroom tiles or around windows (places that may eventually get wet). You can also smell the mold even before you have found its location. Usually a "musty" smell that reminds you of soil or alcohol ... Water on the walls, peeling wallpaper, or rot stains are also indications of mold.
Removing mold from a wall in a house or other dwelling is essential because it can cause several physical disorders such as: eye irritation, nose and throat irritation, difficulty breathing, cough, fever, nausea, clinical fatigue etc.…
In most cases the symptoms disappear in people once the mold has been decontaminated, but in some more sensitive people it can cause irreversible health problems hence the need to resolve the problem as quickly as possible once detected.
Decontamination must also be done in houses previously used for the cultivation of cannabis. In fact, these cannabis plantations cause great damage to a property because the humidity level maintained in these plantations is very high and aeration is not optimal. The high humidity level leads to emergence of mold.
An electric meter possibly tampered by cutting off the electric mast or even simply a new electric mast are clues that may indicate that the house has been used for growing cannabis in the past.
As soon as a mold problem is identified and the source of moisture is known, decontamination of the premises must be carried out without delay, whether the exposed persons show symptoms or not. Mold on coatings and building materials brings contaminants into the indoor air of a home, which can affect the health of occupants.
