Today we’re going to share a few mold videos that illustrate how devastating the health and financial consequences of untreated mold can be. People often imagine that mold damage is more of a cosmetic issue than a health problem. However, as we’ll see here, this is far from the case.
Mold issues in the home are nothing new. Struggles with mold are even mentioned in the Bible! Specifically Leviticus 14:
“If the mildew reappears in the house after the stones have been torn out and the house scraped and plastered, the priest is to go and examine it and, if the mildew has spread in the house, it is a destructive mildew; the house is unclean. It must be torn down—its stones, timbers and all the plaster—and taken out of the town to an unclean place.”
The same problem still exists today, and the consequences are similar, as the mold videos in this post will illustrate.
