Ear And Hearing Problems Associated With Mold

ear, hearing, black moldWhen it comes to mold and allergies, you may not think about your hearing or your ears. However, there are types of mold that can negatively impact you and your families hearing. There are a lot of health issues that can be caused by mold spores, so American Home Services wants to make sure you and your family are safe and healthy.

A couple things you may notice with your ears in reference to mold exposure are hearing loss and sound sensitivity. These are on the opposite side of the spectrum, but both are caused by your body fighting against mold spores. There are studies that show some people may suffer from vertigo or temporary or permanent hearing loss. You may not show other signs of allergic reaction, such as runny noses or red eyes.

How Is Our Health Affected By Mold Spores?

Not everyone shows signs of being affected by mold spores. Others are highly susceptible to mold exposure. There are so many symptoms, it may be difficult to narrow it down to mold in your home if you are unaware of there being any in your home.

Mold spores themselves don't do anything to us, they are just a seed, in a way. It is how our bodies react to those spores that cause the problems. Our bodies try to fight off the invaders and that can manifest itself in many ways, our ears and hearing be one of those ways.

Improving Air Quality and Mold Removal In Your Home

Even if you are not showing signs of mold exposure, it is important that you make sure your home is clean and mold-free. Children and older adults are more susceptible to mold exposure than other people, but you can become ill if it becomes strong enough.
