What Symptoms Might I See?

Symptoms from Mold

Know the Facts

The most common health problems caused by indoor mold are allergy symptoms. Although other and more serious problems can occur, people exposed to mold commonly report problems such as: nasal and sinus congestion, coughing, wheezing/breathing difficulties, sore throat, skin and eye irritation and upper respiratory infections (including sinus inflammation).

Are The Risks Greater For Some People?

There is wide variability in how different people are affected by indoor mold, however, the long term presence of indoor mold growth may eventually become unhealthy for anyone. The following types of people may be affected more severely and sooner than others: infants and children, elderly people, individuals with respiratory conditions or sensitivities such as allergies and asthma, persons having weakened immune systems (for example, people with HIV infection, chemotherapy patients, organ transplant recipients).

Those with special health concerns should consult a medical professional if they feel their health is affected by indoor mold.

Are Some Molds More Hazardous Than Others?

Some types of mold can produce chemical compounds (called mycotoxins) although they do not always do so. Molds that are able to produce toxins are common. In some circumstances, the toxins produced by indoor mold may cause health problems. All indoor mold growth is potentially harmful and should be removed promptly, no matter what types of mold are present or whether it can produce some level of toxins.
