Mold can have adverse health effects for many individuals. The effects of mold may vary from one person to the next, but those affected are not limited to the young and elderly, or those with certain existing health problems. While these groups are often considered at greater risk of mold-related health problems, anybody may be affected.
Some may experience headaches, itching eyes, watery eyes and skin irritation including redness and itching following short term exposure. More advanced symptoms may include constant headaches, nose bleeds, fatigue, breathing disorders, coughing up blood/black debris, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, loss of appetite, weight loss, hair loss, rashes, open sores, short term memory loss, neurological disorders, swollen glands, asthma attacks, ear infections, sinus infection, bronchitis and joint/muscle pain.
The most severe symptoms of mold exposure, and those associated with long-term exposure, include blindness, brain damage, long term memory loss, bleeding lungs, cancer and even death. If you notice any of these severe symptoms, advanced symptoms or short term symptoms, it is important to see a doctor right away.
What you should also do is test your home for mold. Finding the mold is the first step so that it can be removed. The next step is to determine the cause of the mold and rectify the situation so that it does not return.
Duct cleaning from All Year Cooling is an effective way to remove mold in your air ducts and on your vents. The service will include the cleaning of all registers, furnace fan cleaning, cleaning on the inside of air ducts, cleaning on the inside of ventilation and heating system, cleaning of air conditioner or heat pump coil and we’ll run disinfectant through the duct vent system to kill any mold spores and other contaminants that are still lingering.
Unlike some companies, all of our duct cleanings are comprehensive. If a company promises duct cleaning in half an hour or an hour, you’re probably not getting the most out of the service. A comprehensive duct cleaning should take several hours if it is properly performed.
We even offer mold testing to help you determine if you have a mold problem. We’ll perform a free visual mold inspection and also offer mold examination and lab testing. If mold testing is something you’re interested in, just give us a call and we’ll explain the process in greater detail.
