How does toxic mould affect humans?

It’s a well-known fact that mould can make humans sick, but how sick can some of the more toxic mould species make you?

Some people have pre-existing health conditions like asthma, allergies or weakened immune systems that can result in mould affecting their respiratory health. However, mould can also cause serious symptoms in other individuals, such as:

  • heart palpitations
  • skin rashes
  • numbness or tingling sensations
  • dizziness
  • fatigue
  • depression
  • headaches
  • sinus problems
  • memory loss
  • an inability to concentrate
  • muscle pain
  • joint pain
  • sores

An unexplained occurrence of any of the above symptoms that does not go away, or stops temporarily while someone is outside of the home could mean that there is mould present in the home or workplace.  

Mould can also affect humans in other ways – it can colonize within the body and even use the human body as a food source. Other moulds, like the black mould often associated with grow-ops, release toxic spores that have devastating health effects on both people and animals.   It’s difficult to determine if mould is the cause of sudden and prolonged health concerns without a mould inspection, which can even determine the type of mould present (toxic or non-toxic).

If mould is present, it’s extremely important to have it removed by a certified and professional mould removal company.
