ALL AMERICAN HOME INSPECTIONS, LLC MOLD TESTING CERTIFIED MOLD INSPECTORS

Are you unknowingly living or working in water damaged building? New Orleans Louisiana mold testing from AAIT can help! Did you know it may be dramatically affecting your health? It’s estimated that indoor air pollutants, including mold and mycotoxins may be contributing to any sickness you may be feeling. Typically we think of smog, smoke, and outdoor pollution as detrimental to our health but indoor air quality may be an even bigger risk to your health. Many people are unaware that a toxic home or workplace is contributing to their symptoms.

Exposure to damp and moldy environments may cause a variety of health effects, or none at all. Some people are sensitive to molds. For these people, molds can cause nasal stuffiness, throat irritation, coughing or wheezing, eye irritation, or, in some cases, skin irritation. People with mold allergies may have more severe reactions. Immune-compromised people and people with chronic lung illnesses, such as obstructive lung disease, may get serious infections in their lungs when they are exposed to mold. These people should stay away from areas that are likely to have mold, such as compost piles, cut grass, and wooded areas.

The most common types of mold found indoors include Cladosporium, Penicillium, Alternaria,and Aspergillus. Stachybotrys chartarum (sometimes referred to as “toxic blackmold”) is a greenish-black mold, which grows on household surfaces that have high cellulose content, such as wood, fiberboard, gypsum board, paper, dust, and lint and is usually an indicator that there has been elevated moisture present or previous water damage.
