Is Your Home Making You Sick?
Symptoms of Mold Exposure in the Home
Is mold growing in your home making you ill? Perhaps, but before talking to a mold remediation specialist, first discuss any symptoms with your doctor. Certainly, not all unexplained physical symptoms are mold-related, nor do all varieties of common indoor mold cause symptoms. When they do occur, most symptoms of mold exposure mimic allergic responses common to a variety of airborne triggers. Longer-term exposure to more toxic mold growing in your home can produce both acute and chronic symptoms that cover a wide spectrum of physical illness.
When grouped according to the symptoms they cause, there are three broad categories of mold growth:
These types tend to cause “nuisance” symptoms that mimic other respiratory allergies. Sneezing, coughing and post-nasal drip are typical reactions. One common allergenic is Cladosporidium, an outdoor mold that relocates indoors and grows well on wood, cloth and other porous surfaces when activated by moisture. Symptoms of Cladosporidium exposure are often similar to common hay fever.
As the name implies, these varieties can trigger disease, including certain types of pneumonia. Aspergillus mold is well-adapted to indoor environments and thrives on many surfaces, even in household dust. Inhalation of spores may result in lung infections, particularly in persons with suppressed immune response. While Aspergillus is also encountered outdoors, exposure to the higher concentration of spores inside an enclosed, under-ventilated house increases the likelihood of illness.
This variety, generically known as “Black Mold” is poisonous. Exposure may trigger health consequences in almost anyone if the concentration of spores is high enough. Black mold emits reproductive spores that carry mycotoxins, toxic chemicals that produce a wide spectrum of symptoms including serious breathing difficulties, severe headaches, chronic fatigue, skin rashes and mental reactions ranging from brain fog to depression. Black mold contamination in homes is not common—but not rare, either. Suspected black mold contamination should always be verified and removed by a qualified mold remediation specialist.
If you suspect mold growing in your home is causing illness, seek qualified medical advice and also contact the mold remediation specialists at Rytech for a professional inspection.
