Is black mold dangerous?
Very dangerous. If you're exposed for long enough, black mold spores can shut down your organs, incapacitate your immune system, and damage your brain—resulting in death.
It can be especially for people with respiratory issues. Exposure symptoms include coughing, wheezing, nasal congestion, red eyes, nosebleeds, itchy skin or eyes, and a sore or itchy throat. In otherwise healthy people, short-term exposure to toxins from black mold are unlikely to cause harm.
