What Are Mycotoxins?
When to Get Mycotoxin Testing
Mycotoxins are poisonous chemical compounds, which fungi (mold) produce as a byproduct. As the name implies, mycotoxins are toxins. Their molecules are lightweight easily floats throughout a structure and are freely breathed in and absorbed through skin of occupants. Mycotoxins are capable of causing multiple negative health symptoms, including illness, disease and even death in humans and other animals. They are often associated with serious health problems centered around neurological damage. They are measured most commonly through a urine test. American Mold Expert’s mycotoxin lab is also available to run urine mycotoxin tests if you want to check your body.
Mycotoxins can remain in a home even after professional mold removal and mold clearance pass, therefore we suggest environmental mycotoxin testing to our mold remediation clients.
