Mold Testing Is Highly Recommended If You Are Experiencing Skin Rashes
Professional mold testing can help you determine if this toxic substance is the cause of your health problems. A mold infestation can affect people in many ways. A common one is skin rashes. These often become itchy and uncomfortable, and in some cases even lead to an infection. People with allergies (as well as children, seniors and the sick), especially to mold, and those prone to dermatitis are at higher risk.
Identifying Rashes Caused By Mold
Rashes caused by mold can manifest in different ways and only exposed areas will be affected.
- Slight irritation with redness
- An open wound
- Skin that is swollen, red, itchy, dry and warm to the touch
- Red bumps, patches or scales
- Blisters that ooze
- Intense itchiness and the resultant prolonged scratching may lead to an infection, pigment or color changes, scarring or leathery skin
Why Do You Need Mold Testing Services?
Mold is present everywhere, however, there are certain precautions that you can take to prevent spread and the consequent health issues. This includes monitoring and cleaning areas in your home that are prone to mold. While the kitchen, bathrooms, laundry areas, attic and basements are places that mold is likely to be seen, it can also grow in invisible and hard-to-reach places such as behind walls.
Who Should Perform The Mold Inspection?
The best way to keep mold in check is to determine the cause of the problem and fix it. A mold inspection uncovers all the hot spots and can identify sources that you may not find on your own. This is critical to successful mold remediation. There is also the risk of spreading the contamination and direct exposure when you try to find mold yourself. Why take a chance with your health or property? Certified inspectors have the training and the tools to get it done safely and correctly.
