Mountainside, NJ, June 05, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Environmental service company EIT today released an update on their quest to help clients find and treat mold. Everyone knows that living in a home with mold is very dangerous and bad for your health. According to EIT, there are many easy steps you can take to make sure that your bathroom, kitchen, garage, and other places in your home are safe.
"The only way to know whether your house contains mold is to have it tested. The first and most important thing to know on testing for mold is making sure your sample is analyzed by a certified laboratory," reported Lee Wasserman, President and CEO of EIT and Lew Corporation.
Wasserman went on to discuss the 3 main types of household mold:
Allergenic molds are an irritant to those with allergies or asthma, but are not known to lead to any life-threatening complications. Children are most susceptible to symptoms caused by exposure to this type of mold.
Pathogenic molds are known to lead to infections that can be of particular concern to those with a weak or compromised immune system. This type of mold is also known to cause a condition called hypersensitivity pneumonitis; which leads to bacterial growth in the lungs of those with weak immune systems.
Anyone and everyone is susceptible to the potential sickness caused by toxic molds. This is because they produce mycotoxins, which exist on the surface of the mold spore and can easily enter the body through inhalation, ingestion, or simply coming into contact with the skin. One of the most potent carcinogens in the word is a toxic mold called Aflatoxin, which grows on peanuts and grains.
EIT further reported that there are various ways on how to test for mold, but the most affordable way is to purchase a test kit that you can do yourself. The Environmental Innovative Technologies’ DIY Mold Testing Kit comes with simple instructions on how to test for mold, all supplies needed to take the test, prepaid shipping to the lab, and most importantly, a certified lab analysis.
"We highly recommend that you know what is in your home, especially if you have young children. When bad things happen like a sickness, it is truly a shame. It is an even bigger shame that it was preventable. Take preventable, affordable, and easy measures to protect yourself and your family today. Test your home today with a DIY mold test kit, and get the peace of mind that you deserve."
