Mold is a threat which many homeowners are aware of, but which many can’t identify. However, this is a real problem for thousands of homeowners across the country and can pose real health risks to all those living under the roof. Depending on the type of mold, you and your family members can experience a wide variety of symptoms if you have any in your home. Some of the most common include:
- Allergy-like symptoms are common when dealing with a wide variety of mold and mildew. A stuffy, runny nose is one of the most common symptoms for basic types of mold.
- Itchy, watery eyes and itchy skin are also telltale signs of having mold in the home. Redness of the eyes can be a sign as well.
- While the allergy-like symptoms can be mild, the mold may also cause breathing problems. This can be particularly problematic for those who already have breathing issues like asthma, or perhaps heart problems. This combination can lead to serious, life-threatening circumstances.
