Most people know that having mold in your home or office is not a good thing. Mold causes unpleasant, musty smells, foundation and structural problems, and it can even increase the likelihood of insect infestations. Though most people are aware of the damage that mold causes to the physical structure of their homes, not everyone is aware of the damage that it can cause to their health.
Mold testing for health concerns is important for anyone who suspects a mold problem in their home or place of work. The most common symptoms of mold exposure are respiratory; problems such as allergies, shortness of breath, and sinus congestion are typical, and often rightly diagnosed as mold sensitivities. However, respiratory issues are not the only problems that mold can cause. Headaches, muscle aches, and fatigue are common symptoms, but chronic mold exposure has also been linked to neurological issues such as mental ‘fogginess’ and poor memory.
A large number of people who are suffering medically from mold exposure do not even know that they have a mold problem. If you are experiencing poor health and haven’t found the cause, having your home or workspace inspected for mold may give you the answers you are looking for. Mold causes a wide array of problems that effect your quality of life, but mold remediation can help you regain your health and wellbeing.
