Mold Illnesses- What to Do!

Mold can affect your household and make everyone sick. Sometimes you cannot see or smell mold. Mold has a way of hiding in dark and damp areas. Once you see or smell mold, it means you have a mold infestation that will need to be removed by a professional. Colorado Hazardous Environmental has information on the symptoms associated with mold and what you can do.

What are Symptoms of Mold Exposure?

Many symptoms of mold mimic those of allergies or the flu. The main difference is how long the illness lasts. Allergies and the flu are seasonal and will go away. Mold illnesses will continue throughout the year and never give you a break. If you have any of the below symptoms that are chronic, see your doctor and call a professional mold removal company. They will be able to check your home and find mold, even if it is hidden, and remove it safely. Some of the major mold exposure symptoms are:

  • Allergy Symptoms
  • Itchy or Watery Eyes
  • Headaches
  • Stuffy or Runny Nose
  • Red Eyes
  • Blurry Vision
  • Memory Problems
  • Weakness or Fatigue
  • Vertigo
  • Nausea
  • Muscle Cramps
  • Aches and Pains
  • Numbness or Tingling Throughout Your Body

If you have the above symptoms and they have lasted longer than they should see your doctor immediately. Also, tell them you may have been exposed to mold. Mold illnesses are hard to diagnose as most of the symptoms imitate other conditions. If you believe you have mold in your home, contact a professional to check. Never try to check for mold yourself. Many times, mold is growing in crawl spaces or other hard to reach places. If this is the case, you may not spot it. A mold removal specialist has the proper equipment to find and carefully remove mold from your home.
