Top Health Problems Caused by the Presence of Mold
Category : Health Problems
One of the biggest incentives to have mold removed from your home is your health. Mold, especially more toxic types like black mold, can cause recurring issues for you and your family. If you’ve been suffering from health issues for several years on end, and are unsure what the cause may be, there is a good chance that mold is the culprit. Repeated health problems can also help you test for, identify and remove mold from your home. Below are just a few of the more common health problems caused by mold:
If you’ve been experiencing consistent sinus pressure, congestion or pain, mold may be aggravating your sinuses. Sinus issues also incorporate runny and itchy noses. In more severe cases, mold can cause sinus headaches and even migraines.
Another strong indicator that mold may be hiding in your home is a cough that won’t go away. If you have trouble breathing or are experiencing chest pain, these may be additional signs of the presence of mold.
Sneezing is also one of the main health problems caused by mold. Mold can seriously trigger seasonal allergies for those who suffer more than the rest of the population. On top of sneezing, itchy or watery eyes and/or throat can also be caused by mold.
Mold has also been linked to mental issue such as mood change, trouble sleeping and also depression. Since mental and psychological issues can often be caused by a number of factors unrelated to mold, it is more difficult for homeowners to single out mold as the main culprit.
