Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 10, 2009
Mark Levy, a Los Angeles and Southern California certified indoor environmentalist specializing in mold related issues, says that this is the most important time to pay attention to water intrusion issues. With the recent rains covering the Southern California area, leaks are not the only concern. In an area that is not used to high levels of rain, what looks like a small leak may lead to major mold concerns. If not dealt with, this can lead to expensive issues down the line, as well as the potential for considerable health threats. Does your home or office have a musty smell or appear to be more humid (moist)? Are there noticeable water stains or even suspicious substance on the walls or furniture? If left unattended, many homes and businesses can be susceptible to mold or other contaminants that can create potential health concerns.
It is best to get your home or business assessed and tested. However, if you don't, be highly aware of potential symptoms of mold allergies that could lead to health related problems due to mold. People who have Asthma and Allergies are generally more susceptible than otherwise healthy individuals. Also, elderly people, young children, individuals undergoing chemotherapy or those having a suppressed or compromised immune system are also more vulnerable. Make sure your family, customers, and employees, are not exposed to this danger. You may not see what is lurking in your indoor environment. Have your home or office assessed and tested by a certified mold professional. Protect the ones you love; visit http://www.themoldguyinc.com.
