Mold


You should be concerned about mold in your home if the mold growth is extensive and/or can't be controlled by using disinfectants. Exposure to high airborne mold spore levels may lead to certain health problems. Additionally, mold can cause structural damage to various components in your home.
Allergic reactions are the most common health effects associated with mold exposure. Common symptoms of mold exposure may include respiratory problems, nasal and sinus congestion, burning eyes, watery eyes, reddened eyes, blurry vision, coughing, nose and throat irritation, skin irritation, shortness of breath, possible fever, and central nervous system symptoms such as memory problems, mood changes, and constant headaches.

THE DIVISION OF ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH SERVICES DOES NOT TEST OR INSPECT FOR MOLD. You can visit the National Safety Council or Environmental Protection Agency (EPA): Asthma, Air Quality, and Environmental Justice websites for additional information on the symptoms of mold exposure.

Additional general information on molds can be obtained from the following websites:
