allergic reactions to mold are the most common health effects of mold.
Allergic reactions may happen immediately or develop after a period of time
following exposure. Both growing mold and mold spores may lead to
allergic reactions. Symptoms of mold allergy may include sneezing, runny
nose, coughing, wheezing, tearing and redness of the eyes, and skin
irritation or rash. Asthma attacks may be caused by mold or mold spores
in people who have asthma and are allergic to mold. Even in some
nonallergic individuals, mold can irritate the eyes, skin, and airways. For
example, the "black mold" Stachybotrys, along with some other types of
mold, produces toxins known as mycotoxins that can cause irritation of the
skin and airways in susceptible individuals.
In some cases, people may develop severe reactions to mold breathing.
People with compromised immune systems or those with chronic lung
disease can develop serious infections of the lungs due to molds.
It is not possible to predict the degree of severity of the health risks
associated with mold in the home. Allergic individuals vary in their degree of
susceptibility to mold, and the risk may also depend upon the extent and
exact type of mold that is present.
Where can mold be found in homes?
Although shower stalls and basements are typical moist areas prone to the
growth of molds, any moist area in the home may harbor mold. Drywall,
ceiling tiles, carpets, furniture, ductwork, roofing, paneling, wallpaper, and
the areas around plumbing pipes are examples of areas in the home that
may become infested by mold if the requisite growing conditions are
Mold from the outdoors can enter the home through open doors, windows,
and vents. It may also become attached to clothing, shoes, and pets and
therefore be carried indoors.
Mold can have many different colors and sometimes appears as spots.
Additionally, a musty odor may be present. Mold growth may also be
hidden underneath carpeting, on the back side of wallpaper, and behind
drywall or paneling.
|Asthma and Mold
Molds can trigger asthma
episodes in sensitive
individuals with asthma.
People with asthma
should avoid contact with
or exposure to molds.
"A major concern associated with exposure to biological pollutants is allergic reactions, which range from rhinitis, nasal congestion, conjunctival
inflammation, and urticaria to asthma. Notable triggers for these diseases are allergens derived from house dust mites; other arthropods, including
cockroaches; pets (cats, dogs, birds, rodents); molds; and protein-containing furnishings, including feathers, kapok, etc. In occupational settings,
more unusual allergens (e.g., bacterial enzymes, algae) have caused asthma epidemics. Probably most proteins of non-human origin can cause
asthma in a subset of any appropriately exposed population." U.S. EPA
