It is very important for you to keep your home free of mold and mildew. Allergies are just a few of the many health problems that have been linked to mold and mildew exposure. When a person inhales mold cells, the immune system will try to destroy those cells. In some cases, the immune system overacts, and that can cause sneezing, runny nose and scratchy throat.
Mold and mildew exposure may also worsen asthma symptoms. Asthma is a lung disease that causes the airways to constrict. It affects about one in 11 children and one in 12 adults. Asthma symptoms can range from mild to life-threatening.
Additionally, mold and mildew can cause a respiratory infection. Healthy people are not likely to develop a respiratory infection after they are exposed to mold. However, people who have a weakened immune system are at an increased risk for developing a severe respiratory infection.
Fortunately, pressure washing can help prevent mold and mildew from accumulating in your home. Powerwashing is the act of using a mechanical sprayer in order to remove dust, grime and mold from the home. You should contact J&L Professional Services if you want to get your home powerwashed. They have been providing powerwashing services for 15 years.
