It’s now officially 2015! 2014 is just a distant memory as we look ahead to a new year with new opportunities and challenges. However, while the year may be new, some things in your home remain the same, such as the hidden patches of black mold that lurks between your walls and other damp spaces in your home.
Black mold is like that one New Year’s guest who drastically overstays their welcome. In the case of black mold, however, the airborne spores can wreak havoc with respiratory systems, especially in individuals who already suffer from respiratory conditions such as asthma or allergies.
While it’s uncommon for black mold to cause death, it’s not unheard of, particularly in individuals who have advanced and debilitating respiratory conditions. In such cases, the combination of their illness with black mold can be deadly. Mostly, however, black mold makes breathing an irritating and difficult affair and it can most definitely adversely affect a person’s health.
Identifying black mold isn’t difficult—it’s mold that’s black—but discovering the hidden patches that aren’t easily accessed can be incredibly difficult. Peering in between walls and ceiling crevices, after all, is something most homeowners aren’t equipped to do.
