We hear a lot about mold these days, especially in the humid southern states. Mold has had increasing attention due to its dangers and toxicity. What you may not know is that black mold is becoming more prevalent. Here are some little known facts about black mold and black mold symptoms.
If you live in a house with any type of mold, you are generally exposed to it by breathing the airborne mold spores, and since it is an allergen, this is the primary cause of black mold symptoms.
There are different types of black mold symptoms, which include mental and neurological symptoms, respiratory symptoms, and general sense of discomfort. To break down the black mold symptoms by category, here are some things to look out for.
