Holly Hill, Florida (PRWEB) September 20, 2012
While many pregnant women take considerable precautions to ensure the safety of their growing baby, a recent Wall Street Journal article reveals that many may not be aware of other toxins that could negatively affect their pregnancy. The article notes that indoor bio-hazards that affect air quality come from a variety of sources, including cleaning products and natural mold growth caused by water damage. The article notes that even some of the cleaning products used to prevent mold can contribute to toxic air quality. In response, United Water Restoration Group encourages all individuals, pregnant or not, to have their home inspected for mold, and if found, to have it professionally removed.
According to the article, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have found that the air an individual breathes is a tremendous factor in determining the health of a fetus. Commenting on a recent study regarding the topic, Dr. Robin Dodson of the CDC states, “Debilitating toxins and cleaning chemicals were found in 96 percent of over 250 pregnant women tested.” The article notes that poor air quality can lead to numerous developmental problems in the child including hormonal imbalances during puberty and cancer in organs that suffered weakened development in utero. United Water Restoration Group adds that toxins like mold can also negatively affect the health of other individuals within the home, causing a variety of respiratory problems and allergic reactions.
As the article suggests, many individuals with good intentions may be purchasing cleaning products that are unsafe for the fetus. Even “green” products that are associated with mold removal and prevention have been found to contain a variety of toxic chemicals that can impact the indoor air quality. The article suggests, “When purchasing a disinfectant, know what is in it! Eco friendly organic and natural mineral cleaners that label ingredients are available on Amazon and at local specialty stores.”
In regards to mold remediation, United Water Restoration Group has helped many homeowners detect, remove and prevent indoor mold growth. In a recent press statement, the company asserts that anytime mold is found or suspected, it is paramount to contact a professional: “A home which contains mold can be very dangerous to those living inside, including those who are with child.
