Maryland is a beautiful state and a wonderful place to live, but if you have toxic mold in your home, it can turn a great thing into a nightmare. How do you know if you have a toxic mold problem in your Maryland home? And what happens if you are suffering from toxic mold exposure?

The only way, however, to know for sure if you have toxic mold in your Maryland home is to have a professional mold inspection performed. There are, however, plenty of symptoms that should alert you to something being wrong, even if it’s not toxic mold sickness, if you are having these symptoms, you should get yourself to doctor as soon as possible.

  • Migraines
  • Dizziness
  • Sore throat
  • Sneezing
  • Wheezing
  • Coughing
  • Rash or skin irritations
  • Red, burning, or itching eyes
  • Gastric pain
  • Diarrhea
  • Confusion or disorientation
  • Increased urination
  • Unusual appetite
  • Stiff joints
  • Sore muscles
  • Poor memory
  • Light sensitivity
  • Shaking or tremors
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Weakness
  • Tingling in limbs

The complete list of symptoms is longer and scarier than this small portion. That doesn’t mean, however, that if your home has mold that you are bound to be in the hospital next month with neurological problems, but it does mean that you need to be proactive. For the sake of your health and the health of everyone else in your home. This is especially important if you have children, the elderly, or people with suppressed immune systems living in your home. The instances of death from toxic mold exposure are remarkably low, but you never want to take health for granted. A good sign that your symptoms are from mold is that, if you leave your home for several hours and start to feel better and then feel worse once you go home again, you’ve probably got mold.

 

Why Does My Home Have a Musty Odor?

If you are smelling what you think it mold in your home, you’re probably right. It is a pretty distinct odor; sort of a “grandma’s musty basement” smell. If you can smell, or see, mold in your home, it’s not a little mold problem. Mold is microscopic. For example, if you can smell or see it, you’ve got a colony of mold. Millions of microscopic mold spores, piled on top of each other.
