Due to dirt and dust build-up in air vents, Black Mold can start developing, which is an instant call-out for maintenance of your HVAC system.
Is there Mold accumulation in any part of your office or store? It’s time you take action! Whether it’s Black Mold or Fungi, it has to be removed at the earliest as per CDC guidelines, which state that all Molds should be equally treated due to potential health risks.
Health Impact of Black Mold
Most people will have some reaction to prolonged exposure to Black Mold, but it’s much worse for vulnerable populations such as very young children, the elderly, and those with weakened or compromised immune function. Symptoms of potential black Mold exposure include:
- Difficulty breathing
- Irritated eyes, nose and/or throat
- Recurring headaches
- Chronic cough and/or sneezing
These symptoms could be associated with any number of things, from the common cold to food poisoning. If they persist for more than a few days, however, it’s worth making an appointment with your healthcare professional — and then follow-up by having your HVAC unit inspected.
