Serious Black Mold Illness Symptoms Can Develop Leading to Household Mold Health Problems

Serious toxic black mold health issues are generally dependent upon the health status of the individual and may vary from person to person depending upon his or her sensitivity. But a toxic mold test goes a long way to assess the dangers posed by sick building syndrome. The most common way for toxic black mold to get into the body is by inhaling mold spores or mold fragments. Other ways of entry include accidental ingestion or entry through the skin. Large amounts of mold or long term exposure to toxic black mold, even in people who are not hyper-sensitive, may cause health problems or develop black mold allergies over time.

Black mold allergies can be a terrible thing. People with conditions such as diabetes, HIV, Asthma and allergies are generally more susceptible than otherwise healthy individuals. Elderly people, young children, individuals undergoing chemotherapy or those having a suppressed or compromised immune system are also more vulnerable.
