The extent to which a mold infestation can ruin a home is evident in marijuana grow operations. Often, buildings are structurally altered in order to accommodate and facilitate marijuana growth.

The results are high humidity, poor ventilation and excess moisture—all of which fuel mold growth and leave homes completely overrun with wall-to-wall toxic mold.

If you own a property that used to be a marijuana grow house, it must be professionally cleaned to ensure safe occupancy. Likewise, if you’re not sure whether your property is affected, you need to get it inspected.

Grow ops, black mold and your health

The most common buildings associated with marijuana grow ops are residential and commercial rental units. And while the damage can differ from unit to unit, the undeniable mold contamination that results can make occupants extremely sick.

Stachybotrys chartarum, better known as toxic black mold, is a typical species of mold found in grow houses. This mold produces toxic chemicals that can remain inside a building long after the grow op has shut down, creating a toxic environment that’s not safe for occupancy.

In fact, black mold can cause toxic symptoms and disrupt practically every major system in your body. Here are a few examples:

  • Respiratory system (breathing difficulties, coughing, shortness of breath, runny nose or nasal congestion, sore throat, asthma, etc.)
  • Circulatory system (irregular heartbeat, inflammation of the heart, irregular bleeding, etc.)
  • Mental and nervous system (dizziness, nausea, confusion, anxiety, irritation, depression, numbness, memory loss, etc.)
  • Reproductive system (infertility, miscarriage, impotence, etc.)
  • Immune system (recurring infections, compromised or weakened immunity)
  • Energy and comfort levels (chronic fatigue, weakness, muscle pains, vomiting, fever, headaches, etc.)

What can you do to protect yourself?

Fortunately, some cities require that former marijuana grow ops undergo professional grow op mold removal before they can be deemed fit for occupancy again.

However, it can be difficult for the average homeowner to properly assess the requirements for an effective mold remediation. This is why you should always contact a professional to, first and foremost, inspect your property and then to conduct safe and effective mold abatement.
