If you have a breathing problem like asthma, do not enter a building with mold damage. Mold can make asthma symptoms worse.
If you have a weakened immune system (such as from cancer treatment or medicines that suppress the immune system), do not enter a building with mold damage. People with a weakened immune system are more likely to get a serious illness from mold.
Children should also not enter buildings with mold damage.
