Mold is more common than you think. It’s likely to grow in any place in the presence of moisture. Rainy weather, leaky pipes, and humidity are scenarios that can trigger mold infections, so it’s important to fix any water-related issue in your house to avoid dealing with mold.
Mold can grow on any surface, and depending on the level of contamination, it can be visible to the human eye. It can grow on wooden furniture, cardboard, ceiling tiles, carpets, flooring, upholstery, books, and even glass.
While there’s no scientific evidence that mold has direct consequences on health, constant exposure to moldy environments can result in respiratory-related issues.
On a bigger scale, mold can have health consequences on almost anyone. We have listed 4 concerns associated with mold exposure.

While no conclusive studies show severe health problems associated with mold exposure, many people can be affected by mold, depending on the person’s immune system and pre-existing medical conditions.
As mold grows, spores can transmit through the air. These spores can produce mycotoxins and other infectious compounds that affect the respiratory system: wheezing, stuffy nose, sore throat, flu-like symptoms, and asthma, among others. Other pathologies include red-eyed, sinusitis, and conjunctivitis.
Professionals should remediate areas and items affected by mold. Sometimes, these areas must be restored completely. As for items infected by mold, they can be irreversibly damaged. But it’s a decision that should be made by a professional in mold damage remediation.
