Our experienced team at Stake Home Renovations is skilled at identifying mold infestations during our renovation projects, ensuring a thorough and complete removal process.

The Health Hazards of Mold

While not all molds are toxic, some can release mycotoxins, which can be harmful when inhaled or touched. As a matter of fact, exposure to mold can lead to a range of health issues, especially for those with allergies or respiratory conditions. Symptoms may include coughing, sneezing, skin irritation, and even more severe reactions. Prolonged exposure to mold can contribute to chronic health problems. Recognizing the potential health risks underscores the importance of addressing mold promptly and effectively.

Prevention is always better than cure. To help you keep mold at bay, here are some crucial steps you can take:
