Mold in Jackson
Today we are just outside of Jackson working in the crawl space of this beautiful home. There was a pin hole in a hot water line which leaked for an unknown amount of time. We will be pulling all the insulation out mitigating the mold and drying the affected materials.
www.cdc.gov states that 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.
