Mold is well known to be harmful and can lead to asthma attacks and respiratory infections. As mold is a common problem for homeowners, it can therefore be a major concern to find mold in the air ducts. Mold can develop in the air duct system, especially if the air conditioner develops a leak or if water gets in the air ducts. Sometimes mold can spread and thrive in the airducts without the homeowner even knowing it. Mold exposure can happen and over time lead to mold sickness. Identifying mold exposure illness can help lead to the discovery of mold in the air ducts. Air Pure Air Duct Cleaning would like to share the symptoms of mold exposure to potentially expose mold in the air ducts.
Can Mold Cause Chronic Fatigue?
One of the common symptoms of mold exposure is the feeling of fatigue and weakness. Often fatigue is confused with tiredness or lack of sleep. Fatigue is different. Fatigue can leave a person feeling weak wherein sleep and rest never helps. Where fatigue can be a common symptom of many other illnesses, mold exposure may not be the culprit. With mold exposure often there are other accompanying symptoms to look for to better determine if the fatigue is caused by mold exposure or another underlying medical problems.
Mold Headache with Eyes Sensitive to Light
Mold exposure can bring on headaches along with light sensitivity. Headaches are another symptom that can be brought on by a number of other medical problems. Headaches can be easily brought on by diet changes or even anxiety. One way to tell if the headaches may be due to mold is if the headaches persist. Headaches, combined with light sensitivity that keeps reoccurring, point to a trigger within the home, and often the trigger is mold exposure. If you have reoccurring headaches have your airducts checked for mold.
Can Mold Exposure Cause Confusion?
Mold can have a number of effects on the human body. In most cases, mold will affect the lungs and the mind. Headaches are a common symptom of mold exposure. However, prolonged exposure to mold can elevate from headaches to concentration or memory problems. Concentration problems are often a result of fatigue and headaches. Along with concentration problems, memory issues often are another result of mold exposure. Memory problems are very minor such as forgetting where you place things, or maybe you might forget a word. Minor memory issued and concentration problems are often a byproduct of mold exposure.
Can Mold Cause Joint Pain & Stiffness?
Those with allergies to mold will often have an odd reaction of developing joint pain or stiffness. Often the joint pain or stiffness occurs during the fall. Most people contribute the joint problem to the cold. However, mold can trigger inflammatory response syndrome and is a common reaction to mold exposure. Joint pain and stiffness that a person is experiencing may be due to a reaction to mold and not due to the cold.
Can Mold in House Cause Indoor Allergies?
Allergies such as red eyes, blurred vision, and even mood swings may be due to mold in the air. Indoor air quality is greatly influenced by the airducts and what may be inside them. When mold develops inside the airduct, it will pollute the air inside the entire home. When you have chronic allergies inside the home it is often due to mold or other contaminates inside the airducts.
