How Does Mold Affect Your Health?
According to the EPA, molds have the potential to cause health problems if mold spores land on a wet or damp spot and begin growing. Molds produce allergens and irritants, which can cause allergic reactions if an individual inhales or touches mold or mold spores. Allergic reactions to mold are common and can include hay fever-type symptoms, such as sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, and skin rash. Molds can especially trigger asthma attacks, so it's important that people with asthma avoid exposure to mold.
