Allergy Symptoms

One of the first signs of mold growth is allergy like symptoms. Individuals may begin abnormal wheezing, coughing and sneezing.

Respiratory Illness

At this stage an individual may begin to experience signs of respiratory distress, such as a persistent cough and a runny nose. As the mold spores become more prevalent in the air, they seek out other hosts. Your lungs offer a dark and damp space for them to multiply.

Unusual Skin Sensations

Mold spores settle on the surface of the skin and begin to colonize. Individuals begin to notice intense itching sensations.

Brain Fog

This condition describes disruption in the rational thinking processes in the brain due to infection with mycotoxins found in mold spores. Affected individuals may start to notice feeling fatigue or tired.

As mold spores colonize in your place of business or home, you’ll notice a musty smell in the air from the mycotoxins. Mold isn’t always visible. When it is, it often looks like spots, which can be many different colors. Color is not an indication of how dangerous a mold may be. Any mold should be removed and the moisture source that helped it grow should be remediated.

It is important to find out what type of mold is present to be able to successfully eliminate it.

To confirm if you have mold in your property and learn which type. Contact a professional mold assessors. These are licensed individuals that study the cause of mold and create custom remediation plans fit for each case.

Both test are submitted to a third party lab to be tested. Results are usually back in
