Are you Quarantined in a Moldy House?

Updated: Mar 28, 2020

So you are currently ordered to stay in your home due to COVID-19. Look on the bright side now you can do all those things you have been putting off around the house! Being confined to a house that may contain toxic mold can cause serious health issues. It may be a while before things return to "NORMAL," so you may

have to contact a professional to get help with identifying if there is a mold infestation. And here at Moisture Master Pros, we can assist. If you're unsure of your home having mold, please contact us to schedule a FREE consultation. We offer the following solutions.

  • Mold sampling

  • Mold testing

  • Thermal imaging

  • Moisture Detection

  • Mold inspection

  • Water infiltration testing

Water and moisture are always the culprits. If you suspect that your home has mold, one of our IICRC Certified Technicians can locate the leak points, put a stop to water coming into the structure, dry out space and make needed repairs to restore the area to pre-damage conditions.

Symptoms of Household Mold

What are the symptoms of mold exposure?

Becoming sick, that is right out of all the things you can become ill from, did you know you can become very ill from mold. And can cause serious health problems to let us help you identify if you may be experiencing symptoms due to mold exposure.

  • Sneezing

  • Runny Nose

  • Headaches

  • Sore throat

  • Shortness of breath

  • Eye irritation

  • Skin rash

  • Fatigue

  • Coughing

In addition to people with allergies and asthma, others who may be more sensitive to the effects of mold include:

  • Infants and children

  • The elderly

  • People whose immune systems weakened due to HIV infection, cancer, liver disease, or chemotherapy

  • People with chronic lung disease

It's impossible to get rid of all mold and mold spores in your home, but because mold spores can't grow without moisture, reducing moisture in your home is the best way to prevent or eliminate mold growth. If there is already mold growing in your home, it's essential to clean up the mold and fix the problem, causing dampness. If you clean up the mold but don't fix the problem, it will most likely return! The only way to know is to have mold sampling and testing done as soon as possible.
