Your home is your haven, where you go to rest and rejuvenate. But what if your safe place isn’t as safe as you think?
Could you be risking your health by exposure to black mold spores every time you step through the front door?
If you experience any of these 5 health issues, call a Certified Mold Investigator to identify if you have black mold then, if so, remediate it right away.
1. You break out in a rash
A mild allergy to mold could present symptoms such as a skin rash. Look for patches of irritation, red bumps or anything that looks like hives.
2. Your eyes get itchy or irritated
Even if you aren’t allergic to black mold, you can still experience irritating symptoms from inhaling spores. Red, watery, irritated or itchier than usual eyes mean it’s time to check for and get rid of black mold.
3. You develop upper respiratory issues
A persistent cough that sounds and feels thick in the lungs, or develops into a wheezing sound, could be a sign of Stachybotrys chartarum (black mold) in your home.
4. You get achy muscles and fatigue
If your body feels heavy, muscles ache, or you feel constantly run down after being inside your home for prolonged time periods, then you should have your home checked for black mold.
5. You develop worse symptoms
New symptoms, or symptoms that get worse over time, should be addressed. This is especially true for people with asthma or allergies, children, elderly, or people with compromised immune systems.
Experiencing daily symptoms means it’s time to call in a Certified Mold Investigator to check for black mold. GreenWorks investigators can help restore your peace of mind. They identify, remediate and certify your home healthy. So you can get back to resting, and breathing, safely.
