What are the health risks of mould?

Calgary-based Astra Construction Management is intimately aware of risks toxic mould poses to the health of occupants in mould-contaminated properties. We specialize in mould remediation, restoring your mould-affected home, commercial, or industrial property. We work hard, expertly and efficiently, to render your home or workplace safe again for you and your family or employees.

The health effects of mould can be unpredictable and can affect different parts of the body. Mycotoxins from mould can cause respiratory disorders, neurological disorders, pathogenic infections, allergic reactions, and hypersensitivity disorders (heightening sensitivities not only to mould, but to other natural and human-made environmental compounds).

Risk of mould-related health problems increases with prolonged exposure. Infants and the immunocompromised are especially susceptible to mould-related illnesses. In the immunocompromised, spores attach to living tissue and infect the respiratory system. Spores can also cause systemic fungal infections and mycotoxin toxicity throughout the body. Health problems caused by prolonged mould exposure can be difficult to diagnose but have life-altering consequences.

If your workplace has a mould problem, you may feel worse during the week, only to recover somewhat on the weekend. Conversely, an exposure at home may leave you feeling ill without a clear indication why. In areas increasingly exposed to flooding, as in Calgary and other Alberta locations, these experiences become commonplace. Astra renovations specializes in preventative and remedial solutions to limit mould exposure before these health problems can develop.

If you suspect your home, commercial, or industrial property has become contaminated by toxic mould, don’t risk prolonging the problem and causing greater risk to the health of the building’s occupants. Call Astra Restorations. Astra Restorations has the experience, expertise, certified training, and specialty equipment to safely remediate your mould-contaminated property. We’re here so that you and your family or employees can breathe easy once again.
