Mold Mycotoxins Exposure and the connection to Lyme Disease

We have seen an increase of customers that hire us with similar issues. They have auto-immune issues, severe allergies, fatigue, brain fog, gastrointestinal issues, vision changes, night sweats – you name it. Some of our customers, and one of our employees, have Lyme Disease. What is interesting is the connection between mold mycotoxins and Lyme disease. Thus, we are going to be shedding some light on such an important topic moving forward.

We have debated writing about it as it is somewhat more personal than traditional bogs, but we know we need to share the knowledge and hope we can help others on their journey to finding health. If you suspect you live in conditions that have previous water damage, look for the following: shading, musty odors, condensation, staining, warped floors, warped walls, paint peeling off.

Give Mold Doctors USA a call to assess the damage. Any of the above listed conditions could be a sign there is a potential for mold growth in your property. Many of our customers lived in houses with mold many years prior. Then when they have been exposed to moldy conditions again, it has set off health conditions for them. We have seen this in commercial settings. A small roof leak that is not repaired and leaks over time leads to mold growth on one wall, then two walls, then in the flooring. A little water damage can lead to many issues if not remediated in a timely manner.

Mold Doctors USA understands the importance of taking care of mold the right way. If you home or business happens to be water damaged, you should always consider mold remediation as your first priority.

Feel free to give Mold Doctors USA a call for your free evaluation and inspection at 865-945-3000.

What to Do After a Water Leak?

While water leaks might be considered less devastating than fire damage, even
a small water leak on your property can cause significant damages that
will be very costly to mitigate. When a water leak escalates, it can cause
mold, stains and waterlogged drywall. Therefore, if you can’t stop a water
leak immediately, it is important to contact Mold Doctors USA to prevent
further damage. Regardless of whether it is a minor or major water leak,
it is crucial to deal with any water leaks quickly. Here are essential
tips for cleaning your home after water damage to minimize the risk of
personal injury.

1. Leak Detection

It’s important to move wet items to a dry area with enough fresh air to
prevent further damage. It may not be easy to detect the leak without
the professional help of a water, storm and mold damage cleanup company.

Our water damage restoration team at Mold Doctors USA will use
sophisticated disaster restoration machinery to undertake various tests to
locate the leak. A moisture meter will help determine the extent of the
mold damage and pinpoint the source by analyzing the moisture maps.

 

2. Drying

Drying is a very important part of any water leak situation. For instance,
when a water pipe in an upstairs bathroom bursts, it causes flooding and a
lot of damage to the walls and ceilings. Therefore, before considering any
repairs, it is important to dry out the rooms extensively. If the leak
was minor, a commercial grade dehumidifier can be installed to speed up the
room drying process.

Also, some minor stripping out works can help remove the damaged material
before the repairs. In case of a major water leak, we recommend specialized
drying equipment that is necessary for drying all the affected rooms. Our
professionals use thermal dryers to apply heat and dehumidify the wet
surfaces. We use dehumidifiers and air movers in the drying process to
extract moisture from hidden spaces, walls, and floors.
