Health Problems Associated with Mold Growth
The Single Most Important Reason for Waterproofing Your Basement
Moisture can result in the growth of mildew in any area of the home. Water seeping into a home and creating stagnant pools are some common causes for mildew in the crawl space or basement. It is vital for you to be on the lookout for signs of mildew in any area of your home, especially considering that it can give rise to a wide range of health problems for homeowners and their families.
Allergic reactions can be triggered by mold spores in the air as well as the growth of black mold in your home. Those with a weak, sensitive or compromised immune system can notice symptoms from these allergic reactions almost immediately or very soon after the first exposure. The level of severity of the allergic reaction generally depends on the severity of the black mold growth and level of exposure. Common allergy symptoms include nausea, irritated eyes, mild-to-severe headaches, development of rashes, cough, lethargy, memory loss and concentration problems. Even without a classic allergic reaction, there is production of toxins in the body called mycotoxin, which may lead to nasal, skin or ocular irritation.
Those suffering from ongoing lung issues often suffer from acute respiratory infections as a result of even short term exposure to black mold spores. Due to the toxic odor, many people in this situation can also begin to experience acute reactions including respiratory issues and fever. Some of the common respiratory problems include uneasiness in respiration, asthma, tightness of breath, and in some extreme cases bleeding in lungs.
Pain and Urological Issues
In cases of long-term or severe exposure to molds, people also suffer severe pain as well as functionality issues related to their internal organs and urological areas. In many area homes, residents tell doctors of several issues including but not limited to pain in internal organs such as liver, problems in urination, urinary tract infections, and digestion problems.
There are numerous potential medical issues of the eye that are a direct result of an allergic reaction resulting from contact with black mold. Inflammation, redness, itchiness and irritation in and around the eyes are the most common symptoms of an allergic reaction due to the presence of mold in your home’s air. It is wise to ask your family physician about mold reactions. Over-the-counter eye drops, common cold compresses and antihistamines can provide relief from these unfortunate and painful symptoms.
Exposure to mold or moldy air can give rise to a significant number of lung problems such as Lung Fibrosis, Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis and Aspergillosis. Family members affected with such issues can experience chest pain, increased phlegm and a tightness in the chest. The immune system begins to produce larger amounts of mucus in order to lower the amount of mold spores entering the lungs, and expel them out of the chest through phlegm.
