Worried about the Health Condition of your Loved Ones? Are they falling Sick? Your home’s hidden damp / seepage / leakage issues can be a reason it can also lead to bigger health problems.

Health issues: Health concerns around mold include infections, allergenic or immunological illness, and non-allergic illness. Asthma is also triggered by the sensitization of dust mites accruing humid, wet regions of a structure. Another health effect associated with structural dampness is the presence of bacteria in an indoor environment. Bacteria require water to grow and multiply. Bacteria are a source for the transmission of diseases, therefore putting occupants’ health at risk by water intrusion into the indoor environment. Water removal and drying of wet building materials at the earliest will likely prevent mold and bacteria growth, therefore reducing occupants’ vulnerability to disease.

Common health hazards include:

  • Upper respiratory (nasal and throat) symptoms
  • Asthma symptoms in sensitized persons with asthma
  • Cough
  • Wheeze
  • Allergies
    Skin Diseases.
