The Dangers of Water Damage: Mold Growth


If your Largo home has experienced water damage that was not cleaned up properly and in a timely manner, mold could begin to grow. Maybe you had water damage while you were away for the weekend, or maybe you cleaned up the water on your own, and was under the impression you had dried everything out. Whatever the reason, when you have mold growth, you have a serious health issue.
Mold requires a moist place to grow, which can perfectly describe the atmosphere in your Largo home after water damage. And unfortunately, not all mold growth is visible. So if you can’t see anything, but smell a musty or earthy scent, you may have growth in the walls or air ducts. The longer the contaminants are left alone, the greater the risk to your health increases, and also completely removing the spores can be even more difficult.

Some health risks related to mold exposure are:

  • Sneezing
  • Coughing
  • Throat irritation
  • Chest tightness
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Eye irritation
  • Nasal congestion
  • Likelihood of young children developing asthma
