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.
