Mold hiding in your home poses expensive and unpleasant repairs. But, the dangers mold brings to your health is of even greater concern. Prolonged exposure to black mold can cause serious short and long term health issues in humans and animals.
Understand the Risk
Mold is a naturally occurring fungus that most people will come in contact with at one time or another in negligible amounts. However, if mold finds a spot to thrive and multiplies, it can grow rapidly and cause serious health problems.
Symptoms of Mold
The symptoms of mold exposure can vary in type and severity. Individuals who are more sensitive to common allergens, as well as those with weakened immune systems, are more likely to experience more severe mold exposure symptoms. Typically, symptoms to mold exposure are respiratory, such as:
- Constant coughing
- Chronic sneezing
- Irritated eyes
- Runny nose
- Itchy throat
- Persistent headaches
In most situations, mold irritations will resolve themselves soon after the exposed person is in a clean, mold-free environment. Prolonged mold exposure can sometimes lead to more serious mold infections and require hospitalization.This is why it’s important to remediate any mold-infected area as soon as possible.
