Concern about mold growth has skyrocket as of late; homes, schools and business owners have become better educated about the health risks of excessive mold exposure, so they have learned what signs to look out for.
These health risks (as identified by the Environmental Protection Agency) can range from a simple allergic reaction, asthma or in some cases, much worse. In most households today, children tend to spend the majority of their time indoors; playing video games etc.
Staying inside instead of going outside makes them more at risk for the various types of afflictions mold can cause. In addition, elderly folk very often live a sedentary lifestyle, which also puts them at risk of contracting airborne illnesses; which can be caused by mold.
Mold is a naturally occurring substance, but when it is combined with dampness from a house flood, leaky roof, burst pipe or wet basement, harmful results can very often occur, extremely quickly. If left uncontrolled, mold is massively dangerous and can have serious, long-term, devastating health effects.
