Mold is a type of fungus that is essentially everywhere and in normal amounts, environmental mold does not pose a serious health risk to healthy people with functioning immune systems. Mold is believed to have caused health effects because of its ability to release mycotoxins. People with mold allergies will be sensitive to these toxins, so it's important you get an industrial hygienist out to test for growth in your home.

If you suspect that you are suffering from mycotoxicosis it is important to contact a health care professional right away!
