Many people throughout Southern California and the entire US have mold problems in their homes or workplaces which aren’t discovered for many years. In the meantime, mold can adversely affect health, particularly if people have preexisting health conditions. Find out what the symptoms of mold issues are and whether your home or workplace may have a mold problem today.
Common mold reactions
Mold can cause many potentially adverse health effects including headaches, breathing difficulties, skin irritation, allergic reactions (sneezing, runny nose, skin rash), and the aggravation of asthma symptoms.
Variations in reactions to mold exposure depend on the type of mold that’s present, age and sensitivities, and how long the individual has been exposed to the mold problem.
Why may mold be present in my home?
Mold is present in just about all environments because it grows on just about every organic substance as long as moisture is present. When an area has excess moisture, it accumulates and a mold problem will likely develop. Molds reproduce by releasing tiny spores that waft through the air continually. When these spores find a wet place to land, they begin ingesting the surface – wood, paper, carpet, and insulation are the most common hosts – and eventually destroying it entirely.
Kinds of molds that may be in your home
Common types of mold that can often be found indoors are aspergillus, stachybotrys, Cryptococcus neoformans, penicillium, chadosporium, chadosporium, alternaria, epicoccum, fusarium, and tricoderma.
