In the Pacific Northwest, it’s nearly impossible to escape mold. The long rainy season, when moisture is prevalent, extends into winter. When moisture gets into your property and meets with warm air, it creates the perfect breeding ground for mold. Without proper testing and mold removal from AWR Restoration & Cleaning, this hidden threat can grow and spread. Many people don’t even realize they have indoor mold because it can grow inside of floors, ceilings, and walls.
Mold Exposure Symptoms
Mold can cause a wide range of symptoms, depending on its level of toxicity. Many common molds cause allergic reactions in those who have been exposed. This can cause health issues ranging from respiratory infections to increased asthma effects in current sufferers.
One of the most prevalent varieties of mold in the Northwest is also one of the deadliest. Black mold thrives in this climate and produces what’s known as mycotoxins. These toxins can cause permanent health issues and even death if the mold is not adequately removed. The easiest way to detect its presence is with professional mold testing.
The physical symptoms of black mold present in three stages:
- Early Symptoms – Black mold symptoms at the earliest stage are frequently mistaken for allergies or a cold. Symptoms include skin irritation, headaches, sneezing, itchy skin, and itchy eyes.
- Intermediate Symptoms – If you have a mold problem and do not seek mold removal while remaining in the residence, intermediate symptoms can occur. These present as constant headaches, constant fatigue, vomiting, diarrhea, weight loss, skin rashes, chronic bronchitis, and short-term memory loss. If you experience any of these, seek medical help without delay.
- Advanced Symptoms – If left untreated, black mold can lead to very harmful, permanent symptoms. These include cancer, brain damage, bleeding lungs, and death.
