In honour of mental health awareness week…

At got mold? we hear all sorts of tragic stories of some of our customers who have been exposed to mold and airborne particles that have made them physically sick, causing all sorts of mental struggles in their lives. From loosing their jobs, to family turning their backs to them because they don’t understand what mold can do to your mental health.

The documentary called MOLDY has lots of great information which has been documented and thoroughly investigated to help explain the symptoms many people have when being exposed to mold in their homes and work place environments. Not everyone has the same reactions, this is why some people have allergies that are more dangerous then others. This is also why doctors have a hard time diagnosing patients that have been exposed to mold for certain times. Watch it here on FMTV.

We have written before about air quality testing and how a simple test can tell you what is possibly floating around your home that you can’t see with the naked eye. And, the importance of doing these tests and having sampling done. There are many things you can do to improve the air quality that many people are unaware of.

The truth of it is that many people are suffering from mental health issues because they don’t know that the issue lies in what they are exposing themselves to at home. This isn’t always the case, and you should always seek medical attention if you are struggling with any illnesses. We have interviewed many toxic mold survivors and heard their stories how they struggled with mental health issues before they were properly diagnosed. From depression, anxiety, eating disorders, social anxiety, even thoughts of suicide. It’s so heartbreaking to hear the stories we have been told by our readers and a lot of our customers who are struggling with issues based on what they are exposed to and want to let everyone know that they are not alone.

If you or someone you love is struggling with mental health issues due to improper diagnosis and you believe it could be from the exposure to toxic molds and want to have your story heard, contact us today. We encourage everyone to share the stories to make the public aware of the health risks from being exposed to mold and the potential health hazards incurred from improper removal and remediation.

From all of us at got mold? thank you for reading our articles!
