Mold is a natural part of the environment and plays an integral role in nature by breaking down dead organic matter, such as fallen leaves and dead trees. Mold reproduces through tiny spores, which are like seeds but invisible to the naked eye, that float through the air and deposit on surfaces. When the temperature, moisture, and available nutrient conditions are correct, the spores can form new mold colonies where they are deposited. If this occurs naturally in nature, imagine the amount of mold it can accumulate in a closed environment due to flooding, leaky roofs, building maintenance, or indoor plumbing. Extended periods of indoor mold exposure can lead to serious health issues such as chronic fatigue, breathing problems, chronic inflammatory response syndrome, and brain fog.
In today's episode, my guest Tim Swackhammer, Founder and CEO of Mold Medics in Pittsburgh, PA, and Mold Medics Franchising, explains the signs of mold production due to different factors (vapor barriers) not only related to water and moisture accumulation. He guides us through a testing, inspection, and remediation process that any house or building owner should be aware of when trying to eliminate toxic mold for good.
Tim also gives us a real example of the adverse effects on a client and how this person had a tremendous improvement in her body and even her relationship by getting rid of toxic mold in her house. Finally, he explains radon gas and the health risks to people (lung cancer) when it infiltrates your home through cracks in the foundations, joints, and drains.
