Toxic mold exposure can cause serious health conditions. While not all types of mold are dangerous when humans are exposed, toxic mold can be fatal if babies are exposed to it. Many people do not realize they are being exposed to toxic mold because symptoms of toxic mold exposure may appear like a common cold or allergies. Individuals with an especially decreased immune system if exposed to toxic mold can suffer heightened health complications.
Toxic mold develops in overly damp conditions. Certain areas are more likely to have toxic mold, including areas of high rain and high humidity that fosters the growth of toxic mold. Prolonged toxic mold exposure can be extremely detrimental depending on the concentration of toxic mold present.
