One of the causes when not properly executing a water loss or leaving it to dry on its own could be mold growth. Mold can grow and reproduce nearly anywhere that moisture is present and can cause serious damage to your home or business. Mold can also cause serious illness in your health due to the spores and fragments that are released into the air. Asthma attacks may be caused by mold or mold spores in people who have asthma or are allergic to mold. Even in some non-allergic individuals, mold can cause symptoms or irritations in the eyes, skin and airways.
