Toxic mold syndrome is a term used to describe illness and disabilities resulting from exposure to dangerous molds, which create a substance called mycotoxin in the human body.

While most molds are harmless to humans, some, such as Stachybotrys, Penicillim, Paecilomyces, Aspergillus, and Fusarium, can cause serious health problems. Symptoms of toxic mold syndrome include:

  • Fever
  • Nose and throat irritation
  • Dizziness
  • Lung congestion and shortness of breath
  • Nausea
  • Fever with accompanying aches
  • Burning or watery eyes

Because these toxic molds are frequently found in buildings, toxic mold syndrome is frequently also referred to as Sick Building Syndrome. A property owner who doesn’t sufficiently care for the premises or perform necessary mold remediation may be liable if you or a loved one suffer harm from toxic mold.
