Symptoms & Health Risks Black Mold can cause?

Many people are not aware of the damage that mold can have to their health and are not very worried if they have a little in their homes. On the other end of the spectrum, many believe that mold is always deadly. To help you better understand the risks of mold GTA Restoration has written this article that will go over the symptoms of mold exposure and mold allergy symptoms.

What is Black Mold contamination?

In order to understand how dangerous mold is we first need to understand what exactly it is. Mold is a fungus type that grows in damp conditions. Mold can grow both inside and outside and produces spores that allow it to spread. The spores don’t need damp conditions to survive which is why mold can spread in dry conditions as well. Many different kinds of mold exist but the most common indoor ones are Alternaria, Aspergillus, Penicillium, and Cladosporium.

How exactly can Black Mold contamination affect us?

The affect that mold has on us varies widely depending on the person and the type of mold that the person is exposed to. Some people will experience very minimal or no affects at all if they are very healthy and are not sensitive to mold. Although those who are sensitive to mold can experience many different symptoms.

The most common symptoms that people experience when exposed to mold are irritated eyes, stuffy nose, wheezing and irritated skin. If you are especially sensitive to mold you may have even more dangerous symptoms like a fever or shortness of breath. Mold is most dangerous to people with lung conditions since mold can spread to their lungs. This is why it’s very important to get rid of any mold in your house as soon as you can especially if someone in your household has a lung disease.

Mold can cause very many serious problems to your health and should be taken care of as soon as possible to keep yourself and everyone else in your home as safe as possible. Especially if you have kids or older people living in your home you need to have any mold removed straight away. GTA Restoration can inspect your home for you and find any/all mold as well as remove it to keep your family safe.
