Mold Symptoms and Mold Exposure

Mold symptoms can range from irritations to severe symptoms. Both the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have classified mold toxins as cancer causing. The health effects can vary greatly depending on 4 risk factors, below is a brief description of each one.
Symptoms Range based off of 4 main factors:

Mold Spore Levels

Concentrated amounts of mold spores can amplify mold symptoms. When preforming air quality testing, elevated mold spore counts are defined as the indoor levels of mold spores being at higher levels than naturally occurring outdoors. Often the higher an environment’s mold spore count, the more severe mold symptoms can become.

Time of Mold Exposure

Prolonged mold exposure can lead to a host of mold symptoms including mycotoxicosis. Mold fine and ultra-fine particulates build up in the human body over time. Often the longer you are in a mold contaminated environment the higher your risk factors become for more severe health effects.

Immune System

Mold can affect everyone’s immune system in drastically different ways. Your immune system will dictate mold symptoms such as allergic reactions and invasive fungal infections. It is not uncommon for one member of the household to have more adverse mold symptoms than another. If left untreated mold exposure can lead to a lowered or compromised immune system.

Mold Toxins

Mold toxins have been connected to some of the most harmful mold symptoms. Mold will produce toxins at different points of its life cycle. A dangerous toxin that comes from mold are mycotoxins. Mycotoxins will attach to fine and ultra-fine mold spore particulates making them extremely difficult to remove from the human body. Mycotoxins have been classified as a carcinogen (cancer causing) by the CDC and EPA.
