7 Not-So-Obvious Symptoms Of Mold Exposure
December 28, 2018 13:29
Mold can be found anywhere. It is a type of fungus that grows both indoors and outdoors if the conditions in the environment facilitate its growth. In homes, mold usually grows in damp places, such as bathrooms and basements, but it can grow in any room where there are high levels of humidity. Patches of mold certainly look unsightly, although mold isn't always visible and may grow in places you can't see, such as under the floorboards. In addition to its nasty appearance, mold can also have a negative effect on your health.
Mold exposure doesn't always produce symptoms. Certain types of mold are considered harmless (such as those used in the food industry), and mold requires certain conditions to emit toxins. The severity of symptoms caused by mold exposure varies from person to person, and those who have a mold allergy, or asthma, or other diseases of the respiratory system, usually get worse symptoms.
