How Does Mold Affect the Lungs?
  Mar 11 2022

How Does Mold Affect the Lungs?

Exposure to mold can affect your lungs and cause significant health problems including respiratory problems, acute pain in the lungs, tingling skin, and many more. When you inhale mold spores, they will accumulate in your lungs and prompt your body’s defense mechanism to fight off invading substances from your lungs. The body produces immune cells and chemicals which cause your airways to tighten up, leading to shortness of breath. In an effort to expel foreign substances from your body, your respiratory system may produce more mucus to get the spores out of your lungs. However, mold spores have unique properties that counteract the body’s defenses, causing allergic reactions and infections.

Long-term exposure to a type of mold known as aspergillus can lead to the formation of a ball in your lungs, which may lead to tissue damage and cavities in the lungs. Some of the people who are at a higher risk of the symptoms of mold exposure include older people, infants, children, people with asthma, and people with weakened immune systems.

Signs Your Home May Have a Mold Problem

  • Unaddressed water damage
  • Unattended water leaks are a sure sign of moisture on your property which will inevitably lead to mold.
  • Warped walls or chipping paint
  • Strange odors in your home
  • Condensation on doors and windows—this is a sign of moisture which may present a breeding ground for mold
  • Fungus on porous materials like upholstered furniture and foam
  • Health symptoms such as stuffy nose, wheezing, itchy eyes, itchy skin, coughing, shortness of breath, worsening of asthma symptoms, and many more.
  • Visible signs of mold growth

If you notice any of these signs in your home or business, be sure to look for a dependable mold remediation service to bring the condition under control efficiently and quickly. It’s also advisable to seek medical help if you experience serious respiratory problems.

How Can Mold Problems Be Fixed

The first step to getting rid of mold is eliminating the water problem that is creating a damp environment in your home. If the water problem is coming from water leaks or leaking appliances, you may need to call a nearby plumber to make plumbing repairs. If the source of the mold is water damage, you’ll need to call a water damage company as soon as the problem is identified. The longer you leave the problem unaddressed, the more damage you’ll deal with in the long run.
