Mold & Mildew Health Hazards

No matter how clean you keep your home, it will always contain invisible mold spores. Disinfectants have very little effect on these spores as these tiny fungi seeds are an ever-present part of nature’s recycling system. And they fulfill a necessary, vital part in decomposing the organic materials.

Teasdale Fenton Restoration is the most trusted mold restoration service provider in Cincinnati, OH.

Health Hazards caused by Mold & Mildew

Health Hazards caused by Mold & Mildew

Exposure to a large number of mold spores may cause allergic symptoms such as watery eyes, runny nose, sneezing, itching, coughing, wheezing, difficulty breathing, headache, and fatigue. Repeated exposure to mold can increase a person’s sensitivity, causing more severe allergic reactions. These problems are worse indoors, where mold causes indoor air quality problems. Certain molds, such as Stachybotrys and Aspergillus, can produce toxins called mycotoxins under certain conditions. Exposure to mycotoxins can cause more serious illness.

People who live or work in buildings that are exposed to moisture and not adequately ventilated are more at risk of illnesses caused by mold. Populations at particular risk include infants and children, elderly persons, immune-compromised patients, and people with existing respiratory conditions, such as allergies and asthma.
