Dangers of Mold

How does mildew/mold get on your house?

Mildew grows best in warm, humid climates.

Mildew is the visible part of very tiny plant life called fungi. Mildew can grow on paint because, first, paint may contain organic materials that nourish the plant life and, second, organic material floating in the air falls on the painted surface to become food for mildew.

Dirt, is also an enemy to any paint job. Dirt, soot or soil is easily distinguishable from mildew.

Though certain household cleaners can be used to remove mildew, commercially prepared washes kill mildew and cause mildew and dirt to release from the surface.

Once you have removed the mildew and dirt from your home, you may find that the home looks fresh and attractive and you may even forgo a paint job this year.

Health Effects and Symptoms Associated with Mold Exposure


Inhaling or touching mold or mold spores can cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. Allergic reactions to mold are common — these reactions can be immediate or delayed up to six hours. Allergic reactions include:

  • Respiratory problems, such as cough, sneezing, wheezing, infection, and/or difficulty in breathing
  • Hay fever-type symptoms
  • Nose and throat irritation
  • Nasal or sinus congestion
  • Watery, reddened, or burning eyes
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Red eyes
  • Runny nose
  • Sneezing
  • Dermatitis ( skin rash or irritation)
  • Headache
  • Fatigue


  • Molds can trigger asthma attacks in persons who are allergic (sensitized) to molds.

Irritant Effects

  • Even in non-allergic (non-sensitized) people, mold exposure can cause irritation of the eyes, skin, nose, throat, and lungs of both mold-allergic and nonallergic people.
