Mold can be a very serious health concern. If you have mold in your home, it is important to know what you are dealing with. Not all molds produce the same toxic effects. Some molds don’t have any toxic properties. Mold spores may cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. However, it is the dead mold fragments and mycotoxins produced by specific molds that cause mold illness and neurological disorders.
The advantages to knowing the type(s) of mold in your home are:
- It will determine if mycotoxins have been produced
- Aids in locating the source of toxic exposure with no visible mold
- Determines whether possessions should be purged or washed and kept
- Medical treatment proposed may vary with each mold type
