Have you noticed yourself having allergic reactions like sore throat, runny nose, itchy eyes, and breathing difficulties, and you know outdoor allergies are not the reason? What you have may be an allergic reaction to mold. Molds usually grow due to moisture in your bathroom, kitchen, or any other part of the home where water is present in large amounts. When you have a mold problem at home even without excessive exposure to the elements, the root of the problem may be clogged drainage.
Drain clogs are not just inconvenient, they are also unsafe. Water build-up in your drains can cause moisture buildup, which can then attract mold and other organisms. Amongst all the mold types, the most dangerous is toxic black mold, also known as Stachybotrys Chartarum. Toxic black mold is harmful to humans and can cause serious health conditions on someone who is constantly exposed to it. Some of the known health risks of black mold exposure are respiratory problems, skin inflammation, nausea, weakening of the immune system, and even damage to internal organs.
As mold thrives on wet and damp conditions, it can grow indoors, usually due to leaks and other water-related problems like clogged drains. Mold remediation experts should be called upon to deal with the problem, especially when toxic black mold is involved. To prevent their growth and development, however, you will need the help of skilled plumbers who can fix your drains and pipes to avoid leaks, flooding, and moisture buildup. Mold grows in areas that have been exposed to moisture for long periods of time so it’s best to address the source of the problem before it even starts.
If you can’t find any visible mold growth, then you probably have drain clogging problems, and you will need to call drain cleaning professionals from companies like Harris Plumbing Inc., which services Richmond Hill, Newmarket, and other areas in the York Region or Simcoe County. Mold can also grow inside your drains if water takes a long time to go down due to clogs.
Do not attempt to fix any drainage problem yourself, because you might only end up making it worse. DIY drain de-clogging techniques usually only succeed in quick fixes that prolongs the problem. It is also not enough to simply apply mold removal techniques, because you’re not exactly addressing the source of the problem. Save yourself the trouble by contacting professionals who are well experienced in drain de-clogging and enjoy the benefits of a mold-free home.
