Mold can be a danger for anybody if present. There are certain groups of people that are especially at risk when exposed to mold. Infants and the elderly, people with asthma as well as people with compromised immune systems are at the greatest risk to this hidden problem when exposed to mold.
Why are these people at more risk? It is because their immune systems are weaker, some compromised and are in a more vulnerable state. Although these people are at the most risk, it is important to note that anybody, even a healthy adult can be at risk to mold exposure and become ill.
Immediate action should be taken if you fear that your house has mold. Many water damaged homes in Toms River, Lavallette, Brick as well as surrounding areas of Ocean County New Jersey Have hidden “Black” mold known as Stachybotrys.
Stachybotrys one of the most dangerous types of mold. Some of the hidden symptoms of “Stochy” can be flu-like symptoms, gastrointestinal issues, headaches, memory loss and severe respiratory damage. If you, a family member or friend experience and of these issues, you may want to seek medical attention without delay. Other species of mold include Chaetomium, Aspergillus/Penicillium and the list goes on. One or more mold species can be toxic and should be taken seriously. If you don’t feel any complications in a known contaminate home or building doesn’t mean you won’t eventually get sick. Many people can build up a “Mold exposure” sensitivity over time.
