Here are some of the important health effects of mold exposure:

  • Mold Sensitivity: Some people are particularly sensitive to mold, while others can develop a sensitivity over time due to prolonged exposure. Other people may have more sensitive mold allergies and can be severely affected by it. Mold sensitivity includes symptoms like:
    • Chest and nasal congestion
    • Coughing, sneezing and wheezing
    • Sore throat
    • Watering, dry or sore eyes
    • Skin irritation
    • Headaches
  • Mold-Related Infections: People with compromised immune systems or pre-existing lung conditions such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder (COPD) are much more susceptible to mold’s health hazards. In fact, people with these types of conditions can potentially develop infections in their lungs due to mold exposure.

 

  • Respiratory Conditions: In addition to mold being bad for people with existing lung illnesses, mold exposure can also potentially cause respiratory conditions in otherwise healthy people. This includes symptoms such as upper respiratory tract problems, coughing and wheezing and shortness of breath. It is also linked to developing respiratory illnesses like asthma in certain people who are likely more susceptible. This is particularly concerning for healthy children who may go on to develop asthma or other types of respiratory illnesses. For those who currently suffer from asthma, mold exposure can intensify symptoms and cause asthma attacks.

 

  • Severe and Chronic Conditions: Certain types of mold produce mycotoxins, a dangerous toxic by-product that can be absorbed by the skin, airways and intestinal lining. Prolonged exposure to mycotoxins can lead to severe and even deadly conditions. Some of the potentially dangerous symptoms of mycotoxigenic exposure include:
    • Pulmonary fibrosis (scarring in the lungs)
    • Cancer
    • Pulmonary bleeding
    • Immune and blood disorders
    • Liver and kidney conditions
    • Neurotoxicity (toxic nervous system)
    • Pregnancy conditions
    • Digestive and heart conditions

Black mould is a neurotoxin. The spores released by black mould can cause tremors, mood swings, fatigue, headaches, seizures, confusion, fever, eye irritation, sneezing, rashes, coughing, bleeding of the lungs, and sometimes death if at a severe level.
