Am I Allergic to Mold?

Am I Allergic to Mold?

Posted on 10/13/2020

If your sniffles and watery eyes are aggravated both inside and outside of your home, you may be experiencing a mold allergy. Mold allergies can spike in the fall, when decaying leaves cultivate mold and mildew growth outside, while damp humidity allows mold to thrive indoors. While you may not be able to control outdoor mold growth, you should contact professionals for expert mold inspections and mold remediation inside your home. Mold allergies can seriously impact your quality of life, so it is important to contact mold removal services immediately if you suspect an infestation of mold in your house. 


If you have damp, humid places in your crawlspace, attic, basement, bathroom, kitchen, laundry room, or anywhere else in your home, you could have undetected mold growth. While not everyone is allergic to mold, mold poses a serious health risk to those who do, and it should always be removed regardless of physical reaction. Mold allergies result from the releasing of mold spores into the air, which can irritate the respiratory system and provoke mild to severe allergic responses. Mold allergy symptoms include coughing, sneezing, runny nose, watery eyes, wheezing, red eyes, rash, and itchy eyes. Very severe reactions (which require immediate medical attention) include fever and difficulty breathing. Immunocompromised individuals, asthma sufferers, smokers, and people with respiratory infections are at greater risk for severe reactions to mold exposure.*


Diagnosing a mold allergy requires a visit to the doctor, where the doctor will likely use a skin prick and/or blood test to determine allergic response. Treatment might include antifungal medication, nasal corticosteroids, antihistamines, or oral decongestants. Regardless of allergic response, it is essential to treat the underlying cause by enlisting professional mold removal services for your home. Mold remediation companies like MasterTech will ensure comprehensive, safe mold clean up as well as mold growth prevention for your health and safety. Expert technicians will conduct a thorough mold inspection, contain the problem, and use modern oxidative technology to clean and remove mold for good. Don’t let poor air quality caused by mold growth affect your health; visit your doctor and call MasterTech Environmental for residential mold removal today.

I have used Mastertech for two separate mold remediation issues in my house. They arrived on time, kept me informed of their progress and resolved the issues the way I wanted it done. Their staff is professional and thorough. They did an excellent job. I highly recommend them.

Awesome service! Mike has to be one of the nicest people I’ve ever dealt with. I was in a very bad hoarding situation with my moms apartment and from the first phone call Mike handled the situation amazing. He assured me that he will do whatever possible to help me during this very sad and stressful time. Even after a few bumps in the process with the apartment complex he went above and beyond and made it still work. His team members Dylan, Donovan and Paola were so professional, respectful and came on time every day during process. Mike and Dylan communicated with me throughout the few days and even made a trip to our storage unit with many boxes. The best decision I made. I HIGHLY recommend Mastertech Thank you so much Mike, Dylan, Donovan and Paolo.
