What are the symptoms of mold exposure?

Some types of mold in your home can lead to long-term, at times terminal, health issues. You must have your home inspected and the mold tested by professionals to eliminate the danger to you and your family. Here we have listed three different levels of mold-related conditions.

The most common symptoms of mold are those of any allergen or the common cold:

· Sneezing
· Cough
· Sore throat
· Labored Breathing
· Ear infection
· Muscle aches
· Nasal congestion
· Rash

For those more sensitive or less healthy, the above symptoms may be more pronounced, but other medical conditions may result from prolonged exposure to mold.

· Fatigue
· Diarrhea
· Depression and anxiety
· Swollen glands
· Nausea
· Vertigo

If the “ordinary” symptoms of mold are not treated promptly, they will become acute. Also, infants and toddlers, the elderly, people with chronic respiratory issues and patients undergoing chemotherapy or diagnosed with HIV or AIDS may experience severe medical issues.

· Asthma Attack
· Pneumonia/bronchitis
· Pulmonary fibrosis
· Bleeding in lungs
· Liver or kidney toxicities
· Blindness
· Hearing loss
· Brain damage
· Cancer (some mold toxins are carcinogenic)
