Could Hidden Mold in Your Home be Making You Sick?
Tis the season for sickness, as the common cold and flu are easily passed between us all! Our Kansas City metro area seems to be especially bad for people with respiratory issues from the winter blues to the lengthy allergy seasons. So it can be easy to dismiss our sore throats and runny noses as part of the Kansas City seasons. However, if your sickness is lasting longer than normal or recurring then further consideration of hidden mold in your home should be given.

Caution is Needed in Mold Removal
In the world of most contractor’s, unfortunately, the dangers of black mold exposure and improper removal are rarely considered. For someone who does not understand the volatile airborne properties of mold, it appears that mold removal is not a big deal and anyone can remove it. What most people don’t realize is often times this method of improper mold removal only makes the situation worse. Due to the dangers of black mold exposure, removal must be done with only one approach. With an emphasis on safety and with the help of a certified, experienced, and insured professional. If caution and precautions are not exercised spreading the contamination will be the end result. Mold spores are very small and become airborne at the smallest disturbance. That is why mold removal is done with similar protocols to asbestos removal and great care should be taken to follow EPA recommendations. We wish we could say that all mold professionals follow these protocols, but unfortunately, that isn’t so!
