What Are the Impacts of Mold Spore Exposure on Children?
“Fungal growth,” “mildew,” “spores” – no matter what word we select to describe this invasive species more widely known as mold, one vital fact remains: Mold spores are a constant threat to a higher quality of life. Over 1.5 million mold types are known to exist.
What happens when the most vulnerable members of society, our children, come in contact with one of the more harmful types of mold spores? Stern Mold’s Manhattan mold removal team use their expertise to diagnose if your home needs mold remediation, so your children don’t suffer the health impacts from exposure.
Is it Worth Another Look?
You as a fully-grown adult may not be as sensitive to mold exposure as a child because their vital organs are still developing. Look for mold exposure signs in your child to determine if mold may be affecting his/her health. Here are some of the many respiratory afflictions that plague children exposed to mold:
• Flu-like symptoms
• Perpetual itchy/runny nose
• Asthmatic-type attacks (wheezing, shortness of breath)
Chronic health issues in your household point to a significant mold problem. Check below to see if your child has been dealing with any of these life-altering symptoms:
• Irregular heartbeat
• Muscle pain
These symptoms could indicate that toxic black mold is in the air. Black mold exposure can lead to brain bleeds, organ damage and more. Contact our Manhattan Mold Removal team today if you or your child is suffering from similar symptoms.
