After the cold and wet winter we’ve just had, you probably need fire & restoration services to help with any mold growth in Greenville NC. According to the CDC,
“In 2004 the Institute of Medicine (IOM) found there was sufficient evidence to link indoor exposure to mold with upper respiratory tract symptoms, cough, and wheeze in otherwise healthy people; with asthma symptoms in people with asthma; and with hypersensitivity pneumonitis in individuals susceptible to that immune-mediated condition. The IOM also found limited or suggestive evidence linking indoor mold exposure and respiratory illness in otherwise healthy children.”
That means, for your overall well being, a moldy residence or business needs to be treated as soon as possible. Though, there are a lot of questions that come up when you’re deciding whether you need to make that call. To help with that, here are some of the basics.
