There are approximately 12 common molds that typically inhabit homes and businesses. Mold occurs naturally in the environment and when there’s a significant indoor infestation, it can result in illness. Many of those symptoms are often attributed to other causes.

When exposed to mold, it triggers an immune system response that’s often attributed to asthma and other respiratory conditions. There are medications that can help with mold-induced symptoms, but the best way for people to deal with mold is to have it removed. That requires the experience and expertise of mold remediation specialists.

Mold allergy symptoms can vary widely among individuals and range from minor to severe. Much like ordinary allergies, they can occur all year, only during certain times of the year, or under environmental or weather conditions. Those with a mold allergy may experience:

  • Itchy eyes, throat and nose
  • Watery eyes
  • Headaches
  • Sneezing
  • Stuffy or runny nose
  • Cough and postnasal drip
  • Scaly or dry skin

For those that have other allergies or asthma, symptoms can include coughing, wheezing, chest tightness and shortness of breath. Individuals may have an increased risk if there’s a family history of allergies. The same is true for people that work at jobs with a higher risk of exposure. Some of those include winemaking, baking and woodworking, along with farming, logging, and HVAC servicing. Structures exposed to moisture and with poor ventilation increase risk.

Most mold exposure produces mild symptoms, but it can also result in more serious conditions when mold enters the lungs or nasal cavities. Those can include asthma, fungal infections and inflammation, along with infections of the mucous membranes and skin. It can be especially dangerous for those with impaired immune systems.

Anyone that suspects a mold infestation can avail themselves of the services of a mold remediation service. They’ll isolate the source and take samples for precise laboratory identification. Mold remediation experts will then remove it without contaminating other locations.
