Mold in your home can be incredibly dangerous – and if you have it, you may need to talk to a mold remediation expert to get rid of it.
But how can you tell you’ve been exposed to mold? It doesn’t always cause symptoms, but when it does, here’s a list of what you might experience.
Symptoms of Mold Exposure
Being exposed to mold can cause physical symptoms that make you feel sick. These symptoms can include:
- Runny nose
- Nasal congestion
- Sinus congestion
- Red, itchy or watery eyes
- Sore throats
- Headaches (including migraines)
- Shortness of breath
- A feeling of tightness in the chest
- Asthma attacks
Although less common, you could also experience these symptoms:
- Respiratory infections
- Hearing loss
- Difficulty concentrating
- Memory loss
- Joint pain
- Skin rash
- Digestive problems
- Heart damage
- Bleeding in the lungs
- Scar tissue build-up in the lungs
Sometimes your symptoms will start within hours of exposure. Other times, they start small and become more severe over time. If you’re experiencing any of these issues and you think it might be due to mold exposure, see your doctor – and then call a mold remediation expert who can come to your home and test for it.
If your mold remediation expert does discover mold, he’ll start taking steps to eradicate it.
