Sick Building Syndrome
"Sick Building Syndrome'' or Toxic Mold Can Cause Serious Health Risks
In a toxic mold exposure case, mold spores enter the body through the respiratory system by the breathing in of microscopic mold spores that contain toxins. It is extremely rare that a single exposure to such spores will lead to injury; it is more likely to be due to repeated or prolonged exposure. For this reason, it is often uncovered when groups of people who occupy a certain area in common (such as co-workers) all develop similar symptoms. This has led to the expression of ''sick building syndrome.''
It may be that the toxins are circulated by air conditioning, or it may be isolated to a specific room or area. If such molds are present in a building, those occupants who repeatedly are in that area may experience:
- Nose and throat irritation
- Lung congestion and shortness of breath
- Fever with accompanying aches
- Burning, or watery, eyes
