Do you have mold in your home? This toxic substance can cause a wide array of health problems for homeowners. Take a look at just a handful of problems you or a family member may face:

Respiratory Issues – The most significant affect that mold has on people is it can cause a wide array of respiratory problems, including chronic coughing, wheezing, and asthma symptoms. If you or your children already have asthma, black mold in your home can make things even worse.

Allergy Problems – Not only does mold cause coughing, but it also affects the pressure in your sinuses. This can cause headaches and pressure that makes it hard to function. Because it is harder to function, it is harder to leave your moldy home. Staying home leads to more infections.

Toxic Mold Syndrome – Toxic mold syndrome is a problem where the brain swells from mold exposure. This syndrome can cause confusion and listlessness from a lack of blood flow in the brain.
