The types and severity of symptoms depend, in part, on the types of mold present, the extent of an individual’s exposure, the ages of the individuals, and their existing sensitivities or allergies. Most workers will not be affected by molds. In almost all cases of allergic or other illnesses, the symptoms are temporary. A small percentage of people may experience longer recovery times. It must be pointed out that the symptoms described for exposure to mold can also be due to other causes such as bacterial or viral infections, or other allergies.Therefore, it is important to consult your doctor if you are concerned about your health.
