Toxic mold, also known as black mold, is a type of fungus that can grow inside of your home or residence if you are not careful. This substance tends to crop up in areas and rooms where moisture is typically high and dark corners are abundant. If you are exposed to black mold in your home or workplace, then you may begin to experience the adverse health effects associated with inhaling it. After prolonged exposure to large amounts of toxic molds, you may suffer black mold poisoning.
The Signs of Black Mold
If you wish to check your home for toxic mold, then you should first target the rooms with the highest humidity levels, moderate temperatures, and good surface space for growth. If you notice any of the following physical signs in any areas of your home, then you may be housing black mold:
- Moisture on the walls, ceiling, furniture, or other surfaces
- Yellowish stains on your walls, sometimes with green or black patches
- A musty or mildew-like odor in the air
All of these are signs of a dangerous black mold infestation. If you are exposed to toxic mold, then you may experience adverse respiratory responses when in the contaminated room. If you are continuously exposed to the mold, then you can suffer the dangerous effects of black mold poisoning.
