Here is what the Government of Canada says about mould / mold in your home:
Health Canada considers indoor mould / mold growth to be a significant health hazard. The word mould /mold is a common term referring to fungi that can grow on building materials in homes or other buildings. Damp conditions and mould / mold growth in homes increases the risk of respiratory allergy symptoms and exacerbate asthma in mold-sensitive individuals. It is important to know how to identify, address and prevent moisture and mould / mold in your home.
People living in homes with mould / mold and damp conditions are more likely to have:
– eye, nose and throat irritation
– coughing and phlegm build-up
– wheezing and shortness of breath
– worsening of asthma symptoms
The level of concern depends on the extent of mould / mold, how long it has been present and the sensitivity and overall health of the residents. Some people are more susceptible than others. For example, infants, children, the elderly and those with health problems such as breathing difficulties are more at risk from mould / mold and dampness.
Any respiratory health concerns should be discussed with a physician if you suspect that these could be caused by poor indoor air quality. Your physician is best suited to determine if your symptoms may be related to environmental factors or some other underlying cause.
