Mold and Your Health – The Facts
Continued exposure to mold can lead to respiratory problems in previously healthy people. That is according to a study by the Institute of Medicine (IOM). Additionally, the World Health Organization (WHO) and other organizations have found strong evidence that early life exposure to indoor dampness and mold can lead to asthma in some children.
Some people are more sensitive to the effects of mold. However, people without a mold allergy can develop an allergy caused by ongoing exposure. Also, those with a compromised immune system are more vulnerable to respiratory infections and other serious health problems from mold spores.
Things to know about mold and your health
People with a sensitivity to mold will most likely react quickly to mold exposure but they may not realize mold is the source of their problems because the symptoms of a mold allergy are similar to seasonal or pet allergies. Even though mold is a common issue for homes, businesses, and schools, most doctors are unfamiliar with mold-related illnesses.
Misdiagnosis leads to ongoing suffering and potentially more serious health problems. Interventions that improve indoor air quality can prevent morbidity and respiratory illnesses that are brought on by mold exposure. A certified mold professional can conduct a thorough inspection and advise you of the extent of any existing mold problem.
