Mold Symptoms

Mold Symptoms can vary from mild to severe. There are two different types of toxic mold symptoms that we want to address in this article. First is those experienced by humans, and also signs of fungal problems in your house.

Mold Symptoms in Humans

How a person responds to being in an environment with elevated levels of mold is completely dependent on each individual and the severity of the situation. The problems experienced are usually similar to those experienced by people who have allergies. Health issues from indoor air quality problems are also similar to allergies because one person might be suffering while someone else in that same environment is not affected in the slightest. If you are experiencing problems during certain times or only when you are in certain places, mold may be the cause. Having shortness of breath at home or after it rains are examples of indicators. Here are some common reactions people have to mold exposure.

  • Coughing

  • Sneezing

  • Dry/Itchy/Red Eyes

  • Runny Nose

  • Fatigue

  • Nose and Throat Irritation

  • Shortness of Breath

  • Headaches

  • Dizziness

  • Chest Tightness

  • Gastrointestinal Pain

If you have any of the above symptoms, we suggest visiting a Doctor to get a professional opinion.

House Mold Symptoms

You might have heard the term “sick building syndrome” to describe an indoor environment that is experiencing mold related issues. If you haven’t it is basically saying that the indoor air quality is poor due to fungal growth and everyone inside is feeling sick because of it.

So what are some signs that your home or business is sick? Symptoms will vary depending on the problem, but here is a simple list of things that may indicate a problem.

  • Growth on Walls/Ceilings

  • Musty Odor

  • Excess Water/Moisture

  • Multiple Occupants of Property Sick

  • Gritty feel on hands after touching objects
