Mold Can Cause Serious Ongoing or Undetected Health Problems!

Residents of households with mold or indoor contaminants can be seriously affected by mold spore growth. This can cause respiratory infections, as the indoor air quality of your home is compromised.

Severe asthma symptoms can affect your lungs and breathing conditions, and this can lead to traumatizing results.

Damp air and mold growth is more prevalent around areas of water, such as lakes, rivers or the coastline.

A Mayo Clinic Study States That Fungus is a Major Cause of Chronic Sinusitis.

~ NIHS 2012 study.
