About Airborne Mold:


Molds are tiny fungi that live all around us: in the soil and air, on food crops, and even on our skin. They can grow inside houses or other buildings and can cause health problems in some people. [R]


Headaches, fatigue, allergies or other unexplained symptoms are sometimes associated with the amount of time spent in a specific building or room. Some researchers call this “Sick Building Syndrome” and attribute it to mold exposure [R, R].


Inhaled mold may cause a range of respiratory symptoms, including:

Respiratory infections

Reduced lung function

Cough

Asthma worsening.


In addition to that, some research has linked mold exposure to:

Reduced quality of life

Headaches

Fatigue

Allergies

Throat irritation.


In people with mold sensitivity, the immune system overreacts to inhaled mold. A reaction can cause unpleasant symptoms such as coughing and itchy eyes. People with asthma are more prone to mold sensitivity. In some of them, mold exposure can disrupt breathing and trigger asthma attacks.


Other risk factors for mold sensitivity include:


Having a family history of allergies Occupational exposure to mold (e.g., in farming, baking, millwork, winemaking) Living in a house with high humidity (>50%) or poor ventilation.


Working or living in a building exposed to excess moisture Genetics may also influence sensitivity to airborne mold. Involved genes may play a role in:


Genetic variants for mold
Genetic variants for mold

Immune response to mold (ITGB3)


Breakdown of fungal cells (CHIT1)


Inflammation (GSDMB)


Skin barrier function (CLDN1)
