About Black Mold

Black mold spores contain Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) that they release. These lead to fungal infections, allergies, hypersensitivity, allergic asthma, sinus congestion and other respiratory and nervous system disorders. I can tell you that from just two days being around this stuff that I can barely breathe today, my lungs are not functioning correctly.
The really scary thing is that every site online warns that elderly folks, the very young and those with a weakened immune system suffer more from these black mold poisoning symptoms. Of course the severity of the symptoms will depend on how long they have been exposed to the mold and the quantity of the spores that have led to that exposure. Unfortunately for my clients, it looks as if their mold has been around for quite a while. I am very concerned about their health and welfare at this point!
I will now be concentrating my efforts on detecting whether or not my clients are suffering from any of the obvious symptoms like allergic reactions of the respiratory and/or nervous systems, chronic fatigue (hard to say because elderly folks are ordinarily more tired in general), or reddening of the eyes. If I notice any of these symptoms, I will do whatever is possible to help because I believe that With Age Comes Respect. I take my responsibilities toward this end very seriously!
