Molds are types of fungi that grow in filaments and reproduce by forming spores. These spores are the cause of reactions in people sensitive to them. Allergic reactions to mold can include wheezing, runny nose, watery and itchy eyes, coughing, or rashes. The most common types of household mold include Cladosporium, Penicillium, Alternaria, and Aspergillus. Stachybottrys, the infamous “black mold” that everyone has heard about and fears, is less common than the other types. It takes longer to develop and it needs high cellulose content materials and a sustained water source.
Sometimes individuals may develop severe reactions to mold exposure. Although these symptoms are uncommon, they can include fever and difficulty breathing. People with compromised immune systems or chronic lung disease can develop serious, life threatening infections due to molds. It is not possible at this time to predict the severity of the health risks associated with mold in a home.
