Mold is something that plagues many homes across the country. While it may be a common problem that homeowners run into, it doesn’t make it any less frustrating. Usually, when you have mold in your home, you can smell it as soon as you walk into the house. It has a dank, musty smell that is hard to ignore. However, if your home has mold, it can be much more serious that a bad odor and ugly appearance. Disaster Services is here to talk about how mold exposure can show up in your health as well.
What Do Mycotoxins Do to Humans?
The best way to diagnose mycotoxins is with a urine test. Mycotoxins are small particles that can show up in a urine test and are produced by fungi, such as mold. These small particles are extremely toxic to animals and humans alike. They can have an adverse effect on your health when they are ingested, inhaled, or even by skin contact. Almost all labs that handle urine tests will also test for mycotoxins.
How Do You Know if You have Mycotoxins?
There are several symptoms that can accompany someone that has been infected with mycotoxins. While a urine test is the easiest way to know for sure if you have them, you may want to seek out a test if you have any of the following symptoms:
– Itchy eyes
– Respiratory infections
– Difficulty concentrating
How Do You Get Rid of Mycotoxins in Your Body?
When you are diagnosed with this problem, the first thing you will need to focus on is getting them out of your system. This can be done with probiotics, activated charcoal and prescribed antioxidants. Many people have no problem getting rid of them, but for some, it can be a process. The first thing that will be looked at is the person’s diet. Next, the environment in which you spend your time will be looked at as well. There could be mold exposure in your home, workplace or school.
Why Should Mold Be Safely Removed from a Home?
If there is mold growing somewhere in your home, it can seem daunting to get rid of it. It’s true that there is a process to successfully get rid of mold spores in your home, but you need not fear. The first thing that needs to be done is locate the problem. Sometimes this can be easy, while other times it can prove difficult. It is always best to leave mold removal up to a professional company that is experienced in mold remediation services.
