What Makes Rapid City, South Dakota So Moldy?
Mold in Rapid City, SD is more common than you might think. Hot, humid summers and cold, damp winters basically make South Dakota a breeding ground for mold. If you think your home or business has mold, it is important to get mold testing and inspection performed as soon as possible. Because mold is microbiotic, by the time you can see it with the naked eye, what you are actually looking at is a colony of mold; millions of mold spores growing on top of each other, sending out harmful and potentially toxic spores into your air.
Not only do we have typical weather to deal with, but natural disasters, like floods, can cause incredible amounts of damage. Even when your home seems to have dried out, you can find yourself with a serious mold problem. Like this couple, who were on vacation when a 2011 flood hit their home. They came home to a disaster of epic proportions.
Mold is Everywhere
And it’s not just our homes we need to worry about. In 2016, Black Hawk Elementary School dealt with a scary mold problem.Children, along with the elderly, are especially susceptible to mold sickness. Luckily, no Black Hawk students were made ill by the mold found in their school, but it is vitally important that they not be exposed to toxic, and potentially lethal, molds. Because children often don’t realize they are ill, or don’t know how to describe what they are feeling, it is important to know what the symptoms of mold illness are and to look for them in your children.
- Chronic fatigue
- Aches and pains
- Muscle pain
- Chest pain
- Joint pain
- Malaise – general discomfort
- Hair loss
- Abdominal pain
- Sinus infections
- Cold or flu type symptoms or recurring colds
- Chronic sinus congestion
If you suspect your child, or any member of your family, may be experiencing these symptoms, take them to a doctor immediately and go to work on getting their common environments inspected for mold. Because not everyone is sensitive to molds in the same way, even if they are the only person experiencing these issues, take their complaints seriously.
