HEALTH DANGERS FROM EXPOSURE TO MOLD
While there are thousands of species of mold in existence, most people are concerned about Stachybotrys Chartarum, commonly known as “toxic mold” or “black mold.” This species of mold is actually quite rare, but it’s one of a number of molds that produces a high level of mycotoxins (dangerous mold-based chemicals) that can create a hazardous environment. That said, any species of mold can become a health risk if it’s allowed to grow out of control. To be on the safe side, all mold growth identified by a viable mold test should be discouraged and removed quickly.
Delay and anyone can suffer from breathing air contaminated by mold spores. The risk of health problems increases for those with known allergies, compromised immune systems, and respiratory disorders, such as asthma. Mold-related symptoms include:
• Chronic coughing or wheezing
• Shortness of breath
• Frequent sneezing
• Irritated or itchy skin
• Watery eyes
• Running nose
• Chronic headaches
• Skin rashes
• Chronic fatigue
• Memory loss and diminished ability to concentrate (associated with toxic mold)
