Symptoms of Mold Exposure

Symptoms of Mold Exposure in WorcesterMA

As a naturally occurring organic product that can be found everywhere – indoors, outdoors, all regions of the world – it’s perfectly normal to have low levels of mold most of the time. But when more moisture creeps in and causes mold spores to grow, the mold can reach dangerous levels. At higher mold levels, you may notice some of the telltale symptoms of mold exposure.

Allergens in the Air

The symptoms of mold exposure in your office or home can seem quite similar to allergies, a cold or even the flu. You might have sneezing fits, or complain of itchy or watery eyes. Nasal congestion and sinus pressure can set in, plus headaches. To determine the cause of the symptoms, especially if it is mold exposure, it’s important to pay attention to when and where you experience these symptoms. Are they stronger when you are in your bedroom, bathroom or office? Do they disappear entirely when you leave, such as no symptoms when you’re running errands or at work? If so, this indicates you may have mold at too high of levels. It’s important to remember that you don’t always smell or see mold; it can often grow in areas that are hidden, like under wallpaper and in floor boards.
