Mold Testing & Inspection Services in Thibodaux, LA & Surrounding Areas
Born on The Bayou…
Whether you were born in Thibodaux, LA or have lived here for 6 months, you know a couple of things. It is hot. It is wet. And you probably have mold. But with all that heat and humidity, what can you do about the mold? Those giant dehumidifiers help, but they’re expensive and loud and really are too big for most houses. And even then, it’s not a guarantee that you won’t still have a mold problem. That’s because mold is really good at growing in places that are largely out of sight and mind.
It’s Not All Bad in Thibodaux, LA
Still, not all mold is as dangerous as it’s made out to be. Some molds are actually very helpful. When, in 1928, London bacteriologist Alexander Flemming stumbled upon the mold Penicillium acting as an inhibitor to the growth of bacteria, he didn’t intend to change the world with mold. But he did, because he invented penicillin. The story of how we came to have blue cheese is also accidental. Cheese used to be stored in moisture-controlled caves. A young man once made himself a lunch of bread and ewe’s milk cheese. He intended to eat his lunch in one such cave, but seeing a beautiful girl pass by, he left his sandwich and went to look for her. Months later, he returned to the cave and the moisture and mold (Penicillium Roquefort) had transformed his simple cheese to in Roquefort.
If Mold Is Good, Why Should I Worry?
Like we’ve learned, some molds are great. Some molds, however, are really dangerous. Toxic molds, the most well-known of which is black mold, or Stachybotrys, can have terrifying effects on your mental and physical health. Even non-toxic molds can be dangerous if you’re sensitive to them. And every person is different, so even if you’re not having any symptoms, if someone else in your home or business is, take them seriously. This is especially true if you have children, the elderly, or anyone with a compromised immune system on your premises.
