It can be hard to tell if you’ve been exposed to mold since the symptoms usually feel like a common cold or seasonal allergies. There are a few things to be on the lookout for that might tip you off as to whether or not you are dealing with a mold problem.

Symptoms of Mold Exposure

A cough or stuffy nose might last a few days when you catch a cold, but it can last indefinitely if it is being caused by mold in your home. Other mold symptoms include wheezing, rash, eye irritation, and muscle aches. In more serious cases, you might experience vomiting, nausea, fever, or decreased mental/physical functions.

Feeling Better Elsewhere?

If you feel better after a couple of days away from your home or business, then go right back to feeling bad again when you return, you might have a mold problem. When your body doesn’t have to deal with toxic mold spores, you should bounce back pretty quickly.
