The health risks of mold
Mold poses serious risks to health, especially among those in high-risk groups like the very young, the elderly, and allergy sufferers. There is clear scientific evidence that mold spores, which are common in house dust, can cause health issues. Repeated exposure to areas and materials contaminated by mold can cause serious health issues in susceptible persons regardless of the type of mold or the extent of the contamination.
Damp environments where mold can thrive can often cause health problems, and breathing in spores can result in:
- Severe allergies
- Respiratory infection
- Throat irritation
- Coughing and
- Other allergic reactions
Prolonged exposure has even been linked to asthma. It is recommended to have a complete inspection to determine the extent of the growth and have it completed treated and removed to prevent the long-term health effects.
