Discoloration of tile. Dark stains on grout. Dirty blotches on the shower curtain. Dangerous growth behind the shower wall.

Mold is an unwelcome intruder that is attracted to the buildup of moisture and humidity that is present in your bathroom. This is both unappealing to the eye and detrimental to your health.

At Independence Plumbing & Bath, we believe in educating you on the adverse effects of mold and providing a solution to this problem.

Dangers of Mold

There are many types of mold. Some are innocuous, such as Cladosporium, Penicillium, Alternaria and Aspergillus, while other types, such as Stachybotrys chartarum, are toxic. Mold can enter your home through open windows and doors, heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems. Spores can also be brought in by people and pets. Mold can cause adverse health effects such as:

  • Nasal congestion
  • Wheezing
  • Skin irritation
  • Eye soreness
  • Upper respiratory tract conditions
  • Coughing
  • Lung issues

These symptoms are more prevalent in people who suffer from asthma or underlying lung diseases.
