Mold Infestation: Health Effects

Mold Infestation: Health Effects

From a distance, mold does not look as threatening compared to a spider hidden under you sheets. Coming in various colors from dark green to bright yellow, molds manifest in spaces that are dark, humid, and moist, and can spread uncontrollably; given the right living conditions. Although they have a lack of eyes, and limbs, molds are some of the causes of numerous types of respiratory ailments including asthma, allergies, and the worst of them all – lung cancer and infections.

Molds come in three types; allergenic, pathogenic, and toxic molds.

3 Types of Mold 

Allergenic Molds- Allergenic molds aren’t life threatening, but can be irritable for people who are sensitive. People can develop mold allergies if they are constantly inhaling this type of mold.

Pathogenic molds – These type of molds have the ability to grow in your lungs and affect your immune system. Further exposure may lead into different types of viral infections.

Toxic Molds – Out of the three molds, toxic molds are the most dangerous. Producing mycotoxins, which are present in the mold’s spores, they can easily affect one’s breathing, and can be deadly if left untreated.
